Football: Dortmund's Lewandowski eyes January transfer to Bayern Munich
BERLIN (REUTERS) - Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski hopes to join Bayern Munich in January when he will be eligible to sign a pre-contract agreement with any football club of his choice.
"We still have to wait a bit but I say I think in January I can go," the 25-year-old told reporters after Tuesday's 2-0 German Cup second-round win against 1860 Munich.
Asked whether that would mean a move to Bayern in January, Lewandowski, with a Dortmund official standing nearby, said: "Yes, because it is then that I can officially sign a new contract."
The Poland international fell out with Dortmund bosses over his failed attempt to join the Treble winners in the close season but recently said ties had been mended and accepted the fact that he would spend one more season there.
