Borussia Dortmund star Robert Lewandowski is prepared to run down his contract in order to force through a move to Bayern Munich, according to the Daily Star.
The report claims Manchester City have now joined the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea in registering their interest in Lewandowski.
But the Poland international remains keen to join fellow Borussia Dortmund star Mario Gotze by moving to the Allianz Arena.
The 25-year-old forward will reportedly stay at Dortmund for another season until his contract expires next summer.
Chelsea and Manchester City are both targeting a new striker, and Lewandowski was thought to be high on their list.
The £25m-rated forward has a comparable goal return to Napoli's Edinson Cavani but would cost less than half the Uruguayan's £53m release clause.
Lewandowski has won two Bundesliga titles at Dortmund, and spearheaded their run to the Champions League final this year.
But, like Gotze, he stands ready to leave the club - with Dortmund's conquerors Bayern Munich his preferred destination.
Manchester United have also been mentioned, but the Premier League champions have pressing concerns elsewhere in their squad - most notably in central midfield.
Dortmund have made it clear they're not willing to sell Lewandowski to their German rivals, but they would be powerless to prevent him moving for free if his contract expires.
