Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski is unlikely to join Premier league giants Manchester United in the summer according to his agent, much to the chagrin of fans who wanted to buy autographed man utd merchandise with his name on it.
This news almost confirms the fact that the 24-year-old Polish international is heading to Bayern Munich. This will result in the departure of German international Mario Gomez, who has found first-team opportunities limited at the club this season.
Gomez has been one of the first-team regulars at Bayern Munich since his £ 27 million move from Stuttgart a few years ago, but he recently lost his place to summer signing Mandžukić.
After being injured in the early part of the season, Gomez have found it hard to force his way back into the first-team due to the impressive form of the 26-year-old. Mandžukić has managed to score 15 goals in just 22 matches for Bayern Munich this season, while Gomez has made just 18 appearances. He has scored 10 goals in these matches. Even though Guardiola is going to arrive in the summer, Gomez thinks that his situation is not going to improve. As a result, the 27-year-old is willing to look at other options with several clubs like Chelsea interested in securing his signature.
His departure will almost be confirmed if Lewandowski arrives at the club. Bayern have been the favourites for his signature for quite a while.
“I can tell you only one thing – Robert is interested in the future coming to the Premier League. The Premier League is very interesting for Robert. How long is the future, I cannot say to you. I think this summer is not the future,” said Lewandowski’s agent in a recent interview to the Guardian. Juventus are also interested in signing Lewandowski, who is out of contract at the end of next season. He is valued at around £ 25 million right now.
