Chelsea and Manchester United blow as Lewandowski indicates intentions

Soon to sign for Bayern Munich? Borussia Dortmund’s striker Robert Lewandowski all-but confirmed his impending transfer.

Hopefully this story ends at some point. That’s definitely what Borussia Dortmund’s manager Jurgen Klopp and general manager Hans-Joachim Watzke are thinking right now in regards to Robert Lewandowski.

The 25-year-old world-class striker quite likely put the transfer rumours yesterday to an end by saying that the earliest time to sign with Bundesliga’s Bayern Munich is in January.

He added in an interview with Germany’s favourite tabloid Bild: “I still have to think about it – but why not?”

That was Robert Lewandowski’s poor attempt to answering questions about the report by the Polish football magazine Pilka Nozna that he will announce his transfer January 2th. Pilka Nozna also wrote that there is already an agreement about a four-year deal with Bayern Munich.

What is Chelsea's best eleven?

There have been plenty rumours about Robert Lewandowski's possible transfer in the past, which burdened Borussia Dortmund with much distraction.

Munich wanted him this summer, but Borussia Dortmund didn’t let him go, after they already suffered a crucial loss with the departure of Mario Gotze to Munich.

Lewandowski was also linked with Chelsea FC and Manchester United FC for a possible transfer to the Premier League. But this is quite likely over.

It seems that Robert Lewandowski can’t wait to get to Bayern Munich. But he has to wait until next year and can't confirm it until then. It helps to wait when you just got an £4.2 million raise, like Lewandowski got from Dortmund this year.

What do you think? Is it a real shame that Lewandowski won’t sign with Chelsea or Manchester United?
