His price tag will probably have gone up now though following his four-goal blast against Real Madrid on Wednesday.
"I was not surprised. I tipped Dortmund to win it the minute we were knocked out. I think they will win it now," said Ferguson.
"They all did well on Tuesday. They are a very good team.
"But Lewandowski. Four goals? What can you say? For anyone to score four goals in a game of that nature, against such a great team as Real Madrid, it is a wonderful achievement."
