Dortmund: Lewi staying next season

Borussia Dortmund have put an end to the speculation surrounding Robert Lewandowski’s immediate future by insisting that the striker will be at the club next season.

Robert Lewandowski's Dortmund deal expires next summer

Lewandowski has long been linked with a move away from Westfalenstadion, and at the weekend, reports suggested he was set for a switch to the Premier League, with Manchester City apparently willing to offer him a weekly wage of £200,000.

However, club CEO Aki Watzke moved to quash those rumours and said that the striker, whose Dortmund deal expires next summer, will see out his contract with the side.

“Robert will definitely play for Borussia Dortmund next season,” he told Suddeutsche Zeitung. “We need planning certainty.”

Bayern Munich have been leading the race for Lewandowski’s signature for some time, with talk suggesting that a summer switch to the Allianz Arena has already been agreed.

Just last week, however, Watzke stated that the Poland international will not be joining the German champions anytime soon.

Watzke’s words led to what appeared to be a breakdown in relationship between the club and player, with Lewandowski threatening to offer “proof” that Dortmund had promised him a summer move to Bayern.

The German, though, has reiterated that there was never any arrangement for the striker to be transferred to Dortmund's rivals.

“There is no such promise. There is no verbal agreement and no written agreement. Factual, this is a lie,” Watzke said.

Dortmund general manager Michael Zorc added: “We will start our pre-season in two weeks. And we want clarity in that matter now.”

Despite such reports stating that there is already an agreement in place, Suddeutsche Zeitung claim that Bayern have not put in a written offer for a transfer this summer.

The paper understands that both clubs have been in contact in the past, and during a phone call, Dortmund had asked for a written offer within the next 48 hours.

However, since those talks, held between Bayern general manager Matthias Sammer and Zorc, there has not been any more negotiations between the two parties.

It is believed that the Treble winners are no longer desperate for the player to join them this summer, with incoming coach Pep Guardiola apparently favouring a different attacking line-up.

Bayern will, though, seek to bring in Lewandowski on a free transfer next summer.

According to a report in Bild, Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has informed Lewandowski’s agent, Cezary Kucharski, that the club still hope to sign the player in 2014.
