The rumor that Robert Lewandowski wanted to leave Borussia Dortmund has existed since the end of last season, and now it’s almost set in stone that it will happen.
According to several sources from the German media, the Poland international has reportedly traveled to Munich to take a physical. After passing it he is only one signature away from joining the current UEFA Champions League winners.
The Polish striker reportedly expressed his desire to join the team led by Pep Guardiola during the summer but – as expected – Dortmund didn’t want him to leave, and that ended up being the worst move made by the management; since Lewandowski’s contract will run out in six more months, he is now eligible to sign with any team, and if he completes the move to Bayern he will sign as a free agent.
This is definitely a great move for Bayern as they are looking to build a young team that can have sustained success in the long-term. Lewandowski is one of the best strikers in the world, and his style of play could easily fit in Bayern Munich’s plans. His arrival would probably mean the exit of some of their forwards, but since the arrival was for free it’s not imperative to let some player go.
As for Dortmund, they tried to convince Lewandowski to stay and as a result they will end up losing him for free. It’s a tough break for the Signal Iduna Park outfit, and they will now look to replace the star of the team as soon as possible looking towards the next season after the World Cup.
