Lewa To Sign For Bayern In January

Robert Lewandowski has confirmed the worst-kept secret in football: he will sign for Bayern Munich in January.

The Polish international striker agitated for a move to the Allianz Arena at the end of last season, but Borussia Dortmund refused to sell him to their major local rivals.

They had already lost Mario Gotze to Bayern, and decided it would be better to lose Lewa for free when his contract expires, than strengthen the treble winners by giving them the Bundesliga’s top striker.

Lewandowski was ultimately placated in the short-term with a bumper new contract, but has revealed that his future still lies with Bayern Munich.

He will sign a pre-contract agreement with them as soon as legally possible, and will then move to Bavaria at the end of the current campaign.

Asked about his football future, Lewa told Sky:  "Right now, I can't say anything.

“Normally, I can only reveal it officially in January. At this moment, it is still too early and we’ll have to wait a bit. But I think, I can leave in January."

Pressed on whether he would be returning following Dortmund’s extra-time Cup win over 1860 Munich in the Allianz Arena, Lewa added: “Yes, because I can officially sign the new contract in January.”
