Robert Lewandowski, fresh from receiving a pay raise from his club Borussia Dortmund, acknowledged on Wednesday that his transfer saga had now come to a close, and that he is looking forward to helping the club win trophies this season.

Earlier this summer, the Poland striker had admitted his discontent with BVB management for reneging on its promise to let him leave for Bayern Munich this summer. When Dortmund refused to sell him, Lewandowski said he had a “problem” with certain people at the club.

However, now that the 25-year-old has been handed a pay-raise worth up to $6 million this year, he claims the matter has been settled. Speaking to Der Spiegel, the striker said: “I’m currently only thinking about the new season and my goals. It is right that, in due time, I will announce my decision in the new year. It will be my last season in Dortmund.”
