BERLIN: Robert Lewandowski will see out his Borussia Dortmund contract then join Champions League winners Bayern Munich for the 2014/15 season, turning down offers from England’s Premier League, according to reports on Monday.

“Robert will definitely play for Borussia Dortmund next season. We need some clarity in our planning,” Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke told Munich’s Sueddeutsche Zeitung newspaper after Lewandowski scored 24 league goals last season and 10 in Europe.

According to Bild, Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is reported to have confirmed to his agent that the 24-year-old player will join Bayern on a free transfer in June 2014.

With recent reports of interest from England’s Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City, Borussia have denied reports they have already tripled Lewandowski’s wages. “That is complete nonsense,” Dortmund’s director of sport Michael Zorc told the Sueddeutsche Zeitung.

“It is clear to us that Robert’s current salary isn’t a correct illustration of the levels of his performances. Therefore we have signalled our readiness to raise his salary.”
