Robert Lewandowski is not prepared to make the move to the Premier League any time soon, according to ESPN.
The Polish international is a free agent in the summer and appeared all but certain leave Borussia Dortmund and sign for rivals Bayern Munich.
The Polish striker, who will come up against England in his country's final World Cup qualifier at Wembley on Tuesday, also suggested his move to Bayern wasn't confirmed.
Despite that, ESPN claim that a 'source close to the player' has told them that he would prefer to remain in the Bundesliga than move to England.
He also revealed in the interview with the Telegraph that he had the chance to speak to former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson, but says they didn't talk about a potential switch to Old Trafford.
Chelsea meanwhile still look light in attack having only signed Samuel Eto'o in the summer despite being linked with a host of big names including Lewandowski.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has been linked with an attempt to steal Lewandowski from Bayern during the January transfer window.
