11:23 AM ET 08.24 | Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski has revealed he turned down the chance to join Real Madrid, Chelsea and Manchester United in the past year. The Poland striker, who hit four goals against Madrid in the Champions League semifinal first leg last season, has recently conceded that he will remain at Signal Iduna Park until next year when his contract runs out despite longing to join Bayern Munich this summer. But it was after the Champions League semifinal where Madrid president Florentino Perez held discussions with the 24-year-old. "It was in the office near the dressing room at the Bernabeu straight after the match. We spoke to each other briefly and...OK, let's just say we spoke," he told The Sun."I didn't say 'no'. I was mostly listening to Mr Perez."
