Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp has said that striker Robert Lewandowski will be free to join Bayern Munich before the 2014-15 season, when his contract expires.

"I think it is a known fact that Robert is going to play for Bayern after the upcoming season," Klopp told Welt am Sonntag. "Now the only question is how to shape the time until then.

Klopp went on to say that Mario Gotze’s $47.5 million move to Bayern, which was agreed in April, was even more upsetting than the club’s eventual UEFA Champions League defeat to Bayern in the final. Read the original story...
