Robert Lewandowski: Striker has signed a five-year deal with Bayern Munich

Robert Lewandowski: Striker has signed a five-year deal with Bayern Munich

Bayern broke the news via their official Twitter account, declaring: "Official: #FCBayern have signed Robert Lewandowski (25)! The striker has signed a 5-year contract until 2019."

The 25-year-old has scored 81 goals in 146 games for Borussia Dortmund, including 15 in 23 this season, since joining from Lech Poznan.

Dortmund could have sold Lewandowski last summer to Bayern, the side who beat them in the UEFA Champions League final, but opted to keep the Poland international.

Earlier on Saturday, German newspaper Abendzeitung printed pictures of Lewandowski and his representatives arriving at the premises of Bayern's club doctor, Dr Hans-Wilhelm Müller-Wohlfahrt that morning.

The deal to take the player to the Allianz Arena is believed to be worth 11m Euros-a-year.

Lewandowski is the second high-profile player to leave Dortmund to join Bayern in the space of a year after midfielder Mario Goetze made the switch for a fee believed to be 37m Euros last summer.

Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge was delighted with the deal, saying on his club's official website: "We are very pleased that this transfer is successful.

"Robert Lewandowski is one of the world's best strikers, he will strengthen the squad of FC Bayern and give us a boost.

"We are very pleased that today, from both sides, a five-year contract was signed until 2019."

Dortmund are currently fourth in the Bundesliga table, 12 points behind leaders Bayern, who have played a game less.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
