It has become common knowledge that Robert Lewandowski will leave Borussia Dortmund in January.

At the end of the season, his contract will come to an end, so Dortmund stand to let him walk out for free if they do not sell him in the next transfer window. 

But the question still remains; where will Lewandowski continue his career? Almost every big club is interested in him, and why anyone wouldn't be, as he has already scored 13 goals in 17 appearances this season.

For a long time, the only true candidate for the Pole's signature was Dortmund's biggest rival Bayern Munich, but throughout the weeks, other clubs have come into the contest.

At the moment, the club that is the nearest to bring Lewandowski is Chelsea, as Jose Mourinho is looking for a new striker. Of course, the money is not a problem with the Blues, especially considering that Dortmund only want around £7million for him.

But with Lewandowski coming to Stamford Bridge and signing a long-term contract, this would most probably mean that there still won't be a proper spot for youngster Romelu Lukaku, who is having his second year on loan away from the club.

The Belgian striker is showing that he can be a world-class striker one day, but if Chelsea do not recognise what kind of diamond they have, it may just be that Lukaku will leave the Blues soon.

Besides Bayern and Chelsea, other clubs that are looking for Lewandowski's signature are Real Madrid, Arsenal, Manchester United and also Barcelona.

And, as we all know, Real Madrid is always mentioned in the rumours when one of the best footballers on the world is thinking about leaving his current club, and with Karim Benzema almost already shown the exit door at Santiago Bernabeu, Lewandowski's arrival is becoming an increasing possibility.

It is hard to say where Lewandowski wants to continue his career. It was always his wish to play in the Premier League, but that was before Sir Alex Ferguson retired. His future remains unknown, but as a football fans, we need to look forward to January, when we will have a chance to see where one of the best strikers on the world will ply his trade for the coming years.
