Man Utd, Chelsea to miss out as Lewandowski opts for Bayern Munich
The Polish striker has recently been a target for Manchester United and Chelsea but Dortmund boss Juergen Klopp has confirmed that he will be on his way to the Allianz Arena next summer, to join Mario Gotze who left for the Bundesliga and European champions this offseason.
"I think it is a known fact that Robert is going to play for Bayern after the upcoming season," he told Welt am Sonntag. "Now the only question is how to shape the time until then.
"That is our concern and it is our commitment to our fans and members to ensure that we will have a more competitive team in the upcoming season.
"Up to a certain point we were with Robert's desire for change and were ready to talk. But nothing happened so we had to eventually say: '[A sale] now no longer works for us.'
"And now we want to prove that, with a quality player like Robert, we can be successful in the coming year. Our results in the coming season is what we're all about. I know that Robert and I see it the same way."
