Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski still expects to leave the club this summer despite being denied a move to Bayern Munich.

According to Sky Sports, Lewandowski has given an interview saying he does not believe anything has been finalised yet between himself and Dortmund, and that talks will continue when he gets back from holiday.

“I do not think that this is the final decision of the board of directors and I expect the situation to change shortly,” he said.

“I am enjoying my holiday for now, but I hope things move forward pretty soon and the situation changes.

The Polish hit-man has been in fantastic form for the Bundesliga side this season, attracting interest from the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea as well as Dortmund’s rivals Bayern.

A move to the Allianz Arena was understood to be his first choice, following in the footsteps of team-mate Mario Goetze, who will also be leaving for Bayern this summer, but Jurgen Klopp’s side are keen not to sell another star player to their rivals, who beat them in this season’s Champions League final.

Manchester United were linked with Lewandowski last summer and have been tipped to move for him again due to his desire to leave the club, though Chelsea are also desperate to land a new striker after missing out on several of their other targets.
