Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski has admitted to feeling "cheated" by the German club after it appears he will be remaining there for another season, despite asking to leave and pushing for a move to rivals Bayern Munich.
Lewandowski seemed keen to join Mario Gotze in leaving Dortmund for Munich, however the Champions League runners up refused to sell their top-player to their fiercest-rival.
The Polish striker was then targeted by English champions Manchester United, but a deal for the striker didn't materialise.
It is now expected that Lewandowski will remain at Dortmund for next season and then leave on a free this time next year because his contract expires, however the 24-year-old still feels hard done-by and feels like he has been cheated by the club's officials.
Lewandowski said: "If someone says something, he should keep his word. I'm not saying it's only about the transfer, but other things we have discussed with management and that has not materialised.
"It turns out that words spoken straight into my eyes were untrue. No matter how hard I will train and what I will do, the feeling that I've been cheated will still be there.
"Maybe that word is too much, so for now I will say I'm disappointed."
The 24-year-old, that dazzled Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-finals last year by scoring four goals against them, took part in Dortmund's German Super Cup victory against Bayern Munich, despite being linked with a move there.
