Lewandowski denies hes Bayern bound - report

Robert Lewandowski has insisted it's by no means certain he will leave Borussia Dortmund for German rivals Bayern Munich at the end of the season.

Previous reports have suggested the 25-year-old was on his way to Bayern, who beat Borussia in last season's Champions League final at Wembley.

But Lewandowski, set to lead Poland's attack at Wembley on Tuesday in a match where an England win will guarantee the hosts a place at next year's World Cup finals in Brazil, said he was not yet Bayern bound and would like to play in the Premier League.

"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," Lewandowski said in an interview with Monday's edition of Britain's Daily Telegraph.

"It was a misunderstanding. It is true I had an opportunity to speak with Sir Alex Ferguson (who retired as Manchester United manager at the end of last season), but we didn't mention the transfer.

"One day I would like to play in the Premier League.It would be a great experience."

However, he added he'd turned down the chance to play in England with then top flight side Blackburn Rovers when then manager Sam Allardyce tried to sign him three years ago from Lech Poznan for £3 million ($4.8million).

"There was a proposal from Blackburn," Lewandowski said. "I even spoke with the former manager (Allardyce).

"In the end, I decided that Dortmund gave me a better chance of development."
