Chelsea target Lewandowski confirms Dortmund stay

Published 2 Comments

Robert Lewandowski has dealt a huge blow to Manchester United and Chelsea after confirming he will stay at Borussia Dortmund this season.

The Polish striker has been linked with a move away from the Champions League runners-up all summer with his contract set to expire next year.

Manchester United had been linked with a bid for Lewandowski this summer with reports going quiet in recent weeks.

It was also reported that Jose Mourinho was interested in bringing him to Stamford Bridge as a back-up option for No.1 target Wayne Rooney.

Manchester United manager David Moyes continues to insist that Rooney is not for sale at any price, leading to Mourinho looking for other targets.

However, it now looks like Mourinho will have to continue his search after Lewandowski revealed that he has settled his differences with Dortmund and is prepared to stay for another season.

He told German newspaper BIld: "It is the case that I will stay for another year at Dortmund. We have settled all our disagreements and talked things over.

"There are no more problems. "BVB [Dortmund] are ready to mount an attack for every title. We are chasing Bayern."

It was reported by the Daily Express that Dortmund trebled the player's wages in an attempt to keep him professional in his final year.

Lewandowski is expected to move to Bayern Munich on a free transfer when his contract expires next summer.
