Robert Lewandowski Confirms Bayern Munich Switch
The Pep Guardiola era is well under way at Bayern Munich, picking up from where Juup Heynckes left off may prove to be a harder feat for some but then again, challenges such as this is what puts Pep Guardiola higher than most on the managerial spectrum. His signing of Mario Gotze from closest adversaries Borussia Dortmund seemed to signify a no remorse attitude at Bayern Munich, taking away his closest rivals most valuable asset. And the Spaniard has struck gold again by signing yet another of Jurgen Klopp’s star men, this time Robert Lewandowski, arguably the most clinical number 9 in world football today.
The Pole whose contract runs out at the end of the season confirmed the move yesterday after being questioned if the inevitable was taking place, as to which he responded “Yes, because then I can officially sign a contract. Officially, I can only say something in January. At this moment it is too early. We still have to wait a bit”.
Early reports are suggesting that Lewandowski will indeed complete his controversial transfer in January, however a realistic thought on the matter would have most believing that the man who hit four past Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-final in April and was also linked with both Manchester clubs and Chelsea, will move on a free next season to avoid being cup-tied in both cup competitions, furthermore meaning being excluded from the Champions League.
