Lewandowski honoured by links to Chelsea-bound Mourinho

With reports suggesting that the Real Madrid boss wants to take him to Stamford Bridge with him, the Borussia Dortmund striker admits that he is flattered by the possibility

Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski says that it is “a great honour” to be targeted by Chelsea-bound Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho.

With a deal all but confirmed for the Portuguese to return to Stamford Bridge this summer, reports claimed that he intends to bring the Poland international with him this summer.

When asked by SportBild of the links, Lewandowski remarked that Mourinho is “a good coach” and that “to be of interest in his view is a great honour”.

The BVB star played down reports, however, of a switch to the Santiago Bernabeu, despite meeting the club’s president, Florentino Perez, after his side’s Champions League semi-final triumph in Madrid on April 30.

“I met [Perez] in the locker room after the match but I did not say anything to him, only read in the press what he allegedly has said,” Lewandowski continued.

Having struck 33 goals in 41 games for Dortmund this term, the forward has become one of the most sought-after talents in the transfer market but he insists that he is ignoring discussion of his future as he prepares for the Champions League final.

“That has been going on for so long now. I don’t care about it,” he declared. “I know what I want. First I want the title, then everything will be settled.

“We’ve beaten Bayern Munich several times already. We’re their nastiest opponent. Everyone knows that. I’m sure they have a lot of respect for us.

“Reaching the final is a dream come true. Now we want to win that title as well. I’d love to play right now – unfortunately we still have to wait a few days. Matches against Bayern are very special.”
