The media and football fans all around the world believe that Borussia Dortmund forward Robert Lewandowski will join arch-rivals Bayern Munich next season.
However, Lewandowski should not be so eager to switch teams. A switch to the Bavarian giants would mean a significant reduction in playing time, with manager Pep Guardiola almost certain to pick Croatian Mario Mandzukic or Thomas Muller to lead the line for Bayern.
A striker who is as prolific and as talented as Lewandowski requires regular playing time to make an impact and score goals. Bayern already have a near perfect line-up, with tremendous squad depth. Unless Guardiola decides to offload players, Lewandowski seems almost surplus to requirements.
If Lewanowski is keen to leave Dortmund, he must join a team where he will be valued and appreciated. Arsenal and Chelsea are two such teams. The Gunners have been on the look-out for a striker, and Lewandowski would fit in well and give stiff competition to Olivier Giroud to lead the line at the Emirates.
Chelsea already have Fernando Torres, Demba Ba, Samuel Eto'o, but Jose Mourinho's side are finding it difficult to score goals. A proven goalscorer would be welcomed at Stamford Bridge. A move to any of these two clubs will also allow Lewandowski to showcase his talents in the Premier League, which is touted by many to be the best League in the world.
Lewandowski should not move to Bayern Munich, as it would surely be a step down in his career and this is vital because he has the potential to become an even more dangerous goalscorer.
