Lewandowski to confirm Bayern Munich switch

Published Add your comment

Manchester United target Robert Lewandowski has confirmed his intentions to complete a move from Borussia Dortmund to Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich.

Polish international Lewandowski, who has won 56 senior caps for his country, has been in sparkling form for Jurgen Klopp's men over recent seasons and his impressive goalscoring exploits have seen him persistently linked with a switch away from Signal Iduna Park.

He had previously been heavily linked with a potential switch to Premier League champions Manchester United, but it appears that the former Lech Poznan star has his heart set on remaining in Germany with last season's treble winners Bayern, who are now under the management of Barcelona icon Pep Guardiola.

In an interview with Sport 1 that was quoted by Sky Sports, the 25-year-old seemed to confirm his desire to complete a move to the Allianz Arena, saying: "Yes, because I can officially sign the new contract in January."

Rather curiously, in a separate interview, Lewandowski then even went as far as to suggest that he could be set to exit Dortmund before the current campaign reaches its climax next summer.

"Right now, I can't say anything. Normally, I can only reveal it officially in January.

"At this moment, it is still too early and we'll have to wait a bit. But I think, I can leave in January," he told Sky Deutschland.

Dortmund currently sit top of the Bundesliga table, having amassed five wins from their opening six games.

Guardiola's Bayern meanwhile, who triumphed over Die Schwarzgelben in the final of last season's Champions League at Wembley, are level on points with their rivals but sit second due to a slightly inferior goal difference.
