Robert Lewandowski: Striker Confirms January Departure to Bayern Munich
Robert Lewandowski, 25, agreed to stay put at Borussia Dortmund after pleading and pushing from his coach Jurgen Klopp, club officials and, of course, the Dortmund faithful during the summer. Now, he has apparently confirmed that he will be departing the yellow and black side to join the European and Bundesliga champion, Bayern Munich in January.
The striker is the main starting striker for Dortmund and enjoys playing the attack-minded style under Klopp in one of the most popular cities that Germany has to offer. Also, Signal Iduna Park is one of the most beautiful stadiums. The reason why he wants to leave is simple: Money, which will lead to more success.
Munich already have a solid striker in Mario Mandzukic, but Lewandowski would add a bit more speed, flair and perhaps some more goals than the Croatian. The Polish international would fit right into the starting lineup, but would have to get accustomed to the 4-3-3 style inputted to the Bavarian side by former Barca head coach Pep Guardiola.
Lewandowski had stated that this season would be his very last for Dortmund as he wants to leave the club for a bigger challenge. Munich along with Real Madrid, Manchester United and perhaps an Italian club are all interested in his services. However, it is Munich that is showing the most interest and since they have recently won it all, the striker is warming up to the idea of joining them… Even though it would be extremely disrespectful to his current club, who are slowly becoming arch-rivals with the Bavarian side.
Regardless of whether the move goes through or not, one thing is for sure: Lewandowski will continue to score goals, whether it be for the yellow and black of Dortmund or for the champions.
