Lewandowski has one year remaining on his current contract at Borussia Dortmund but the Champions League runners-up want to keep the striker at the club for the 2013/2014 season.
Borussia Dortmund will triple Robert Lewandowski’s wages in order to keep him at the club until next summer, the Daily Express reports.
The striker only has one year remaining on his contract at Dortmund and is expected to leave the club next summer and join Bayern Munich on a free transfer.
Dortmund are refusing to sell Lewandowski to Bayern this summer, even though it means losing their star striker for free next year.
Despite Lewandowski’s desire to join Bayern, Premier League clubs likes Chelsea and Manchester United are still interested in the Polish front-man, with Jose Mourinho thinking that he can take advantage of Dortmund’s refusal to business with Bayern and tempt Lewandowski to Stamford Bridge.
However, Dortmund have moved to make sure that Lewandowski stays at the club for the coming season by tripling his wages.
Lewandowski currently earns £20,000 a week but will now earn nearer £60,000.
The move from Dortmund doesn’t change Lewandowski’s long term future, which looks set to be with Bayern but is intended to make sure the striker performs to absolute best as he helps Dortmund beat Bayern to the Bundesliga.
