Man Utd target Robert Lewandowski confirms he’ll sign for Bayern Munich in January
Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski has confirmed that he will sign a contract with Bayern Munich in January.
Asked by SPORT1 reporter Christian Ortlepp if he was switching to Bayern in January, Lewandowski answered: “Yes, because then I can officially sign a contract. Officially, I can only say something in January. At this moment it is still too early. We still have to wait a bit.”
The deal is set to be announced on January 2, 2014. At that point the Poland international will sign a deal to join the Bavarian giants in the summer when his current deal with Borussia expires.
Although the move was widely expected, it is a blow for Manchester United who have seen yet another big transfer target agree to join one of their Champions League rivals.
