Robert Lewandowski: Potential destinations

Published Add your comment

With the January transfer window just around the corner, many fans will want their teams to splash the cash and make a one or two big signings.

A few months ago there was a lot of speculation around Borussia Dortmund hot-shot striker Robert Lewandowski and his refusal to sign a new contract, with just six months left on his current deal.

After January 1, the Pole will be open to negotiations with other clubs and able to sign a pre-contract anywhere he sees fit.

Many top teams across Europe have been tracking the situation around Lewy, but with a plethora of options where will the predator play next season?

Bayern Munich

If Lewandowski really signs for the Bavarians, this would be another major blow for Dortmund.

After having to let Mario Götze join their fierce rivals in the summer, selling another of their star performers to Bayern will be awful for Borussia, but somewhat expected.

Lewandowski has expressed his desire to leave Dortmund more than once and stated that he would like a new challenge in his career, with rumours already circulating that he has signed a pre-contract agreement with the Bayern for next season.

This looks like the most likely possibility, but the move is not 100% just yet anyway.


Standing as the only realistic contenders for the Pole's signature in the English Premier League, Chelsea should be desperate to buy Lewandowski in a cut-price deal.

Currently, Jose Mourinho has Fernando Torres, Samuel Eto'o and Demba Ba as his strikers, but the trio have managed to score a total of five goals so far this term, which is just one more than Marouane Chamakh's four goals at Crystal Palace.

Roman Abramovich for once should try to see the bargain Lewandowski would be and should go all-out to sign him.

The advantage for Chelsea is that Borussia will offer Lewandowski to other teams in a bid to prevent him from joining Bayern.

This could lead to the Blues buying one of the best strikers in the world for less than £10m pounds if they can get the forward on board.

Real Madrid or Barcelona

Both of the Spanish giants have been exploring the transfer market for an extra striker over the last 12 months.

Sergio Aguero has emerged as the top target for the Catalans and Los Blancos, but he would cost a fortune and is unlikely to move back to Spain, at least not next month anyway.

This brings Lewandowski into play as the perfect man to join either of Barca or Real if given the opportunity.

At Madrid, the Pole will most probably be first-choice ahead of Karim Benzema, unlike at Barcelona, where he will stand behind Leo Messi and Neymar in the pecking order.

If he joins either Barcelona or Real Madrid, the Pole will definitely ease the pressure on Leo Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo.

Stay at Borussia Dortmund

I know many of you will say this is almost impossible, but that's why it's called possibilities.

There is a small chance that Lewandowski will make a dramatic u-turn and will decide to extend his contract with Die Schwarzgelben.

The Lewandowski Saga won't last much longer and the end is definitely close, with Dortmund fans likely to be left heartbroken once again.
