MOST COMMENTED

Despite the recent public admission of Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski that he wants to leave this summer, the club’s general manager says that the Poland international will remain a Dortmund player next season and that the matter is now closed. Lewandowski is now expected to see out the remaining season of his contract at Dortmund and then join Bayern Munich -- his preferred destination -- on a free transfer next summer.

"Robert will definitely be playing for Borussia Dortmund next season," Hans-Joachim Watzke told Germany's Suddeutsche Zeitung newspaper. "We need this security to be able to plan (for the season)."

Lewandowski, who had been linked with Chelsea, Manchester United and Real Madrid in addition to Bayern, has scored 54 goals in 98 Bundesliga appearances for Dortmund. The coveted striker became the first player to score four goals in a UEFA Champions League semifinal last season, against Real Madrid en route to a 4-3 aggregate win.
