Robert Lewandowski set to join Bayern Munich next summer
Borussia Dortmund managed to retain the services of Robert Lewandowski this season, although the striker will be a Bayern Munich player in twelve months’ time, with the Pole set to sign a pre-contract agreement at the Allianz Arena in January.

Lewandowski is one of the most lethal strikers in Europe and scored four goals in one Champions League game against Real Madrid last season to book Dortmund’s place in the final where they narrowly lost to Bayern Munich.
The player’s contract will expire next summer which means that Borussia Dortmund won’t get any money for someone who scored 36 goals in all competitions last term, although the German club will feel they have had plenty of joy from a player who came cheaply.
When asked by Sport1 television channel whether he could announce his switch to Bayern, the Poland international responded: “Yes, because then I can officially sign a contract.”
Lewandowski caught Dortmund’s eye when scoring 32 goals for Lech Poznan between 2008-10, with the player having managed 58 goals in 103 appearances for the Bundesliga outfit, although the prospect of turning out for Bayern Munich is an appealing one.
Mario Mandzukic is one of the marksmen who Lewandowski will be competing with at the Allianz Arena unless Pep Guardiola moves the Croatian to pastures new as he did with Mario Gomez after the German international signed for Fiorentina last summer.
