Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski has ruled out a potential switch to the Premier League – but admits he would like to play in England in the future.

The Polish striker has been linked with a move to Manchester United in recent months, while Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson was reportedly present at Dortmund’s 1-1 Champions League draw with Manchester City last month to cast an eye over the 24-year-old.

Manchester United were said to be interested in taking Lewandowski over the summer having already landed his former team-mate Shinji Kagawa.

However despite the interest from the Old Trafford outfit, Lewandowski says he plans to honour his contract with Dortmund, which expires at the end of next season.

When asked about Ferguson watching him against Manchester City, Lewandowski said: "I didn't even know Sir Alex Ferguson was in the stands against City but it wouldn't influence me at all. I haven't got plans to change clubs.

"I have a contract with Borussia and I focus on that. I focus on being at my best in every single match. I want to play the best season of my career."

Ferguson should be able to get a closer look at Lewandowski as he leads the line for Poland in their World Cup qualifier against England next week.

The Dortmund striker did admit that he could make a move to the country he should line up against on Tuesday in the future.

"I haven't had the chance to play in England but, maybe, one day,” he said. “What I like about British football is that it is fast and hard. For sure it would be interesting but there's no straight answer for the moment."
