Robert Lewandowski: Set to sign five-year deal with Bayern

Bayern Munich have ended much speculation after confirming Robert Lewandowski will join them from Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund this summer.

Lewandowski had announced his intention to quit the Westfalenstadion once his contract expires at the end of the season, and has been continually linked with domestic and European champions Bayern.

The Bavarian giants confirmed they had reached an agreement with the Poland international, who has put pen to paper on a five-year deal from July 1, 2014.

A statement on Bayern's Twitter feed said: "£FCBayern have signed Robert Lewandowski (25)! The striker has signed a 5-year contract until 2019."

Lewandowski was also rumoured to be coveted by several Premier League clubs including Chelsea and Manchester United but Bayern have won the race for the 25-year-old's signature.

Boss Pep Guardiola attempted to lure Lewandowski to the Allianz Arena soon after taking charge last summer but Dortmund refused to sell their prize asset so soon after losing talented midfielder Mario Gotze to Bayern.

Yet Lewandowski hinted his long-term future lay away from Dortmund and it comes as little surprise that he has chosen Bayern as his next club.

Chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge was delighted with the deal, saying on Bayern'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."
