According to Polish magazine Pilka Nozna, Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski has reached an agreement to join European champions Bayern Munich in January.
The Poland international's contract expires in 2014, meaning he is free to officially discuss terms in January under FIFA rules. But according to Pilka Nozna, the deal has already been agreed unofficially.
Lewandowski recently signed a one-year extension to his Dortmund contract, which tripled the striker's wages, but kept him at the club for the remainder of this season.
Pilka Nozna says that a four-year deal has been agreed between Lewandowski and Bayern, and that a deal will be officially announced on January 2nd.
This news is reinforced, says Pilka Nozna, by the fact Lewandowski asked personally to be pictured on the Polish cover of video game FIFA 14 in the Poland international kit, rather than in the Dortmund kit. This would leave him free to move clubs while keeping up his association with EA and the FIFA game franchise.
Lewandowski is one of Europe's most sought-after talents, and was heavily linked with moves to Arsenal, Manchester United and Chelsea. He was widely expected to sign for Bayern in the summer, but instead agreed to stay with Dortmund for this season.
After scoring 24 league goals and 10 in the Champions League last season, Lewandowski was a vital part of Dortmund's journey to the final in Wembley. His memorable season was capped by scoring four goals in a single game against Real Madrid.
