Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski has admitted he is flattered to be linked with a summer move to Chelsea.

The 24-year-old is out of contract at the end of next season and is widely expected to be on the move at end of the current campaign.

Lewandowski's agent, Maik Barthel, last week said that the forward wants to leave Dortmund when the transfer window reopens, adding that an agreement with a club has already been reached.

Bayern Munich are the bookmakers' favourites to win the race to sign the Poland international, while as well as Manchester United, reports in the past few days have suggested Chelsea are showing interest.

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho, who looks set to return to Chelsea this summer, is rumoured to be keen on bringing the Poland international to west London with him.

Earlier this week, Spanish publication La Informacion claimed that Mourinho had spoken to Barthel recently, urging him to push his client towards Chelsea.

In addition, Bild reported that the Portuguese coach has sent text messages to Lewandowski, making him aware of his admiration.

When asked of the links, Lewandowski said the 'Special One' is "a good coach".

The highly-rated forward added: "To be of interest in his view is a great honour".

Lewandowski went on to dismiss talk of a summer move to Real Madrid.

The forward met with Los Blancos president Florentino Perez after the recent Champions League semi-final game between the two sides, but insisted: "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."
