The striker has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League.
Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski will be staying at the club this summer according to Dortmund’s general manager, Hans-Joachim Watzke.
Sky Sports reports that the Polish striker has his heart set on a move to German rivals Bayern Munich but Dortmund won’t sell Lewandowski to Bayern this summer, having already sold midfielder Mario Gotze to their bitter rivals.
Lewandowski’s contract expires next summer and with a switch to Bayern out of the question this summer, speculation has mounted that the striker could try and move abroad, with the Premier League a possible destination.
Premier League clubs Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City have all been linked with Lewandowski, who could be available to £25 million but Watzke has said that their star striker won’t leaving this summer.
“Robert will definitely be playing for Borussia Dortmund next season,” said Watzke. “We need this security to be able to plan (for the season).”
With Lewandowski now set to stay at Dortmund, it is likely that the Polish striker will simply wait until next summer and make his dream move to Bayern Munich on a free transfer.
The Premier League clubs chasing Lewandowski will now have to set their sights on other targets, with Napoli striker Edinson Cavani interested in a move to the Premier League.
However, the Uruguay international is set to be a much more expensive option than Lewandowski, with Napoli demanding £53 million for the striker.
