Manchester United and Liverpool target Robert Lewandowski insists he has no interest in leaving Bayern Munich to move to the Premier League.

Lewandowski is one of the most sought-after strikers in Europe and is understood to be a primary target for United, Liverpool and Real Madrid.

It has been suggested the increasing wealth of the Premier League could tempt the Poland striker into leaving the German champions, but the 27-year-old has dismissed such reports.

“I don’t see any difference between Bayern and England’s big clubs,” said Lewandowski.

“Of course, the English clubs have plenty of money to spend — but they always had a lot of money and Bayern have always been able to compete.

“There is not a single club in England that will catch Bayern just because they have more money all of a sudden.”

Incoming manager Carlo Ancelotti has been linked with a big-money move for Napoli forward Gonzalo Higuain, which could put Lewandowski’s place in the starting XI under scrutiny.

However the former Borussia Dortmund man – who was managed by Jurgen Klopp for four years – remains confident he will be Bayern’s main man for the foreseeable future.

“I don’t know what Bayern’s plans for the future look like, but it would not be a problem for me if they signed another striker — regardless of whether that’s Higuain or someone else,” he said.

“I will still be playing if another striker arrives. I am convinced of my own qualities — I am strong enough.”
