Robert Lewandowski has admitted that he harbours the ambition to one day play in the Premier League and admits his future remains undecided.

The Borussia Dortmund striker is widely expected to leave for Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich when his contract expires next summer.

However, the Polish striker has revealed that his move to Pep Guardiola's side is by no means a foregone conclusion.

"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 told The Daily Telegraph.

Lewandowski's comments will no doubt alert both Chelsea and Manchester United, who both reportedly attempted to sign the striker in the summer.

Jose Mourinho eventually opted to bring Samuel Eto'o to Stamford Bridge instead whilst David Moyes decided against bringing in a new striker with the likes of Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney already on the books.

But it looks like a move to either Chelsea or Manchester United is growing more likely by the day after Lewandowski admitted his ambition to play in the Premier League one day.

He also admitted that he held talks with former United boss Sir Alex Ferguson but says there was never any mention of a transfer.

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

"It is true I had an opportunity to speak with Sir Alex Ferguson [last year] but we didn't mention the transfer.
