The Football Transfer Tavern is hotting up this evening as punters arrive to watch tonight’s England crucial World Cup Qualifier against Poland.
A victory for Roy Hodgson’s men would secure a place in Brazil next summer and tension appears high at the bar.
One of the Polish players the English defence will have to deal with is Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski.
Interesting news has now emerged in the tavern from The Telegraph about the brilliant forward’s long-term future with his contract set to expire in the summer.
The paper reveals that the 25-year-old has now admitted that he would like to play in the Premier League and insisted that no deal had been agreed to see him join Bayern Munich next summer, as had previously been reported in the tavern.
Playing under Jurgen Klopp’s side, who reached the Champions League final last term, Lewandowski has confirmed himself as one of the finest strikers in Europe and his signature will be in high demand if a move to Bayern does not materialise.
Manchester United have been long-term admirers and former boss Sir Alex Ferguson was a massive fan, something the striker confirmed in an interview yesterday.
He said: “I will be able to sign a contract [with any club] in January, but I have never said that I will sign a contract with Bayern.
“It was a misunderstanding. It is true I had an opportunity to speak with Sir Alex Ferguson [last year], but we didn’t mention the transfer.”
While Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho saw the striker in full flow last season as he put Real Madrid to the sword in the Champions League and the Blues boss would love the opportunity to see him playing at Stamford Bridge.
Hopes of a future English move were enhanced when the Pole added: “One day I would like to play in Premier League. It would be a great experience.”
Is Lewandowski simply flirting? Will he make the move to Bayern as proposed? Let us know your thoughts below.
