Robert Lewandowski admits it is a “great honour” to be targeted by Jose Mourinho amid reports he could join him at Chelsea this summer, according to Goal.
The Poland international striker is one of Europe’s most in-demand strikers after scoring 33 goals in 41 appearances this season and helping Dortmund into the Champions League final.
Manchester United and Real Madrid were believed to be the frontrunners for the former Lech Poznan striker’s signature. However, fresh reports in recent days suggest Jose Mourinho will target the 24-year-old as his first signing as Chelsea boss.
The Portuguese has been tipped to quit Real and return to Stamford Bridge in the summer six years after he first left the club.
When quizzed on the rumours Lewandowski was pleased to be the subject of such reports, though he stressed his desire to focus on Dortmund’s quest for Champions League glory for now.
“He [Mourinho ] is a good coach,” he told Sportbild. “To be of interest in his view is a great honour.”
When pressed further on his future, he added: “That has been going on for so long now. I don’t care about it.
“I know what I want. First I want the title, then everything will be settled.”
