Who does Lewandowski opt for in January?

Published Add your comment

Robert Lewandowski has already decided where he will be playing his football next year, but he has not revealed his next destination, according to Sky Sports.

Lewandowski has only been linked with five clubs since his meteoric rise to European prominence; Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United.

Bayern Munich are the bookies' favourite regarding his move but the other four teams are also mooted to have a punters chance in signing him.

With Borussia Dortmund desperate to cash in on their hitman before the end of the season (prior to the end of his contract), he is being offered to Premier League clubs for just £7million.

Arsenal are said to be planning to make and offer in January but with all the talk of Karim Benzema and Alexandre Pato moving to the Emirates, Lewandowski maybe heading somewhere else.

Chelsea, on the hand, need Lewandowski and Mourinho has to face the facts that his striking options are not title-winning standard.

Samuel Eto'o, recently joined on a free transfer from Anzhi, has yet to make an impact. Fernando Torres is considered as a pure waste of £50million and has definitely not lived up to that price-tag.

And Demba Ba? Some Chelsea fans may have forgotten who this guy is but he's not an out and out goalscorer that Chelsea can rely on. Lewandowski, on the other hand, can change ALL of this.

Man United? Well they seem the more likely out of the three English clubs involved.

David Moyes has yet to state real intent on the Man United fans and proved in Tuesdays 0-0 draw with Real Sociedad that United need another goal scoring option. With Welbeck and Hernandez not considered first-choice by Moyes, Van Persie steadily ageing and Rooney speculated to be leaving Old Trafford, Lewandowski would be an ideal replacement.

Alternatively Real Madrid could use Lewandowski as a Benzema replacement if he goes to Arsenal, but that's about the only feasible chance they have. Ronaldo, Bale and Lewandowski would be a terrifying front three but other than that, there isn't much benefit of a move to the Spanish capital.

Then you have the favourites, Bayern Munich. Despite Klopp's best efforts of not selling him to a rival club, the loss of Mario Gomez and Mario Mandzukic's recent slip in form has left a massive space which Lewandowski could have an eye on filling.
