The striker will not be sold to Bayern, putting Manchester United on red alert.
Borussia Dortmund will not sell Robert Lewandowski to Bayern Munich according to Sky Sports.
Dortmund’s sporting director Michael Zorc has said that the club doesn’t want to sell Lewandowski this summer and has told the striker that he must honour his contract.
This means that Lewandowski will leave for free next season with Bayern probably his likely destination.
We have communicated to the player and his advisers that we will not agree to a transfer to FC Bayern this summer,” Zorc said.
Dortmund appear not to want to lose another top player to Bayern this summer after midfielder Mario Gotze decided to move to Bayern in April.
The Poland striker appeared to hint that a move to Bayern was going to happen soon when he said he would Dortmund for “his dream club”.
It now looks like Dortmund will forgo the transfer income for Lewandowski, said to be 25-30 million euros and expects him to play with full commitment next season.
The news that Lewandowski will not sign for Bayern this summer could tempt Manchester United into bidding for the Polish striker.
United have been linked with a move for Lewandowski all season and could attempt to persuade the Polish that his future lies with them.
Lewandowski has had a hugely successful season scoring 24 goals in the Bundesliga and 10 goals in the Champions League.
