Manchester United and Chelsea have been dealt a blow in the chase for Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski.
As reported by the Mail Online, the striker looks set to earn a £10 million signing on fee when he joins Bayern Munich, with the European champions remaining confident that he will sign a deal with the club.
This will be a setback for the Premier League duo who were given fresh hope of landing the striker after he admitted that he would like to test himself in the Premier League one day.
However, with the Polish international out of contract at the end of the season, he will be free to talk to clubs in the new year, but Bayern are certain that he will sign a deal worth £150,000 a week to stay in Germany.
And with Lewandowski expected to sign a four year deal with the treble winners, England may have to wait until he is approaching 30 to see him in the Premier League.
