Lewandowski Definitely Leaving Dortmund

MOST COMMENTED

Robert Lewandowski, Borussia Dortmund’s four-goal hero against Real Madrid in the UEFA Champions League semifinal on Wednesday night, will be leaving Signal Iduna Park for an unnamed club this summer, the player’s agent has confirmed. Various reports in Germany claim the new club is Bundesliga champion Bayern Munich, which snapped up another of Dortmund’s stars, Mario Goetze, on Tuesday. However, for now, Lewandowski’s agent, Maik Barthel, would only reveal that the Polish international is definitely leaving.

"We have agreed terms with one club, and we plan to move this summer," Barthel said. "There is a very interesting offer for Robert which fulfils entirely the demands set by Dortmund and also the demands of Robert. Dortmund have assured us that Robert can move at the end of the season under these conditions.”

Der Spiegel reports that Bayern made a $32.7 million offer for Lewandowski last Saturday, which Dortmund rejected so it could make the striker another offer. Well, that offer was turned down, which leads the Independent to believe that Lewandowski is definitely headed to Bayern, saying his playing style is a perfect fit for incoming coach Pep Guardiola. However, Manchester United’s Alex Ferguson is also a known admirer of the 24-year-old, and it is understood that he will have big money to spend on transfers this summer.
