Borussia Dortmund have given their star Polish striker Robert Lewandowski the pay rise that he was promised for staying at the club this summer.

Lewandowski had his heart set on a move to Bayern Munich but Dortmund will not allow him to move this summer.

According to reports in German newspaper Bild, Dortmund have tripled the striker's wages - and is now on a deal worth £60k per week, moving from 20k.

Dortmund now hope that all the uncertainty over the striker's future will now be put to bed so they can focus totally on their season as they look to reclaim the Bundesliga title and win the Champions League.

Despite his proposed move to the Allianz Arena next summer, Lewandowski had been linked with clubs like Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea. At one point Juventus were interested but went cold when Carlos Tevez was signed from Man City.

Chelsea were heavily liked with the Pole as they are in the market for a striker. Wayne Rooney is their primary target but Jose Mourinho was planning a swoop for the 24-year-old striker should he fail to land the Manchester United forward.

According to German football journalist Raphael Honigstein the pay rise is nothing more than 'a sweetener for Lewandowski, to ensure he stays motivated and professional.'

Honigstein also reassured the world that this pay rise does not change the fact that Lewandowski will leave Dortmund when his contract expires next summer.
