Pole set for inevitable Allianz Arena switch.
Borussia Dortmund manager, Jurgen Klopp, has told reporters Polish striker Robert Lewandowski will leave next summer on a free for European champions Bayern Munich, amid interest from Manchester United and Chelsea according to ESPN.
“I think it is a known fact that Robert is going to play for Bayern after the upcoming season, now the only question is how to shape the time until then,” Klopp told ‘Welt am Sonntag’.
Jurgen Klopp then went on to admit he wanted to help Robert progress with his career by selling him to a club of his choice, but with only one year left on his contract, Klopp did not find it beneficial to Dortmund.
Borussia signed 24 year-old Pierre Emerick Aubameyang for €15 million this week, despite interest from Atlético Madrid and Newcastle United, who could play as Lewandowski’s replacement next season. Until then, it appears the Gabon international will play on the left wing, with Polish winger Jakub Blaszczykowski on the right.
On the other hand, Bayern Munich may look to offload Mario Gomez next summer with the arrival of Lewandowski. The German international has been linked with moves to Chelsea and Manchester City in previous windows, but may be persuaded to join a Premier League club with the proposal of guaranteed first team football – something Pep may not be able to offer.
Mario has been subject to an offer already this window according to Bild. The German newspaper claimed Serie A side Napoli had submitted €20 million for the forward, which was inevitably rejected.
