Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski has finally confirmed he will sign a pre-transfer agreement to join arch rivals Bayern Munich in the January window and move to Bavaria when his contract expires at the end of the season.

After repeated speculation over the summer months that the 25-year-old Poland forward would move to Pep Guardiola’s camp, Lewandowski has let his contract run down and will be allowed to sign a pre-contract agreement mid-season to commit to Allianz Arena for 2014.

For the first time since staunch denials about the move, and refusals by Dortmund’s manager Jurgen Klopp to hand their most valued player to their Bundesliga nemesis, Lewandowski has said he will take his chance to join Munich on a free transfer.

Lewandowski’s departure would leave a gaping hole in the Dortmund attack – he’s slotted 58 goals in 103 appearances since his 2010 signing from Poland’s Lech Poznan.

Last year he scored 36 goals in all competitions and became the first player to score four times in a Champions League semi-final in his side’s 4-1 win over Real Madrid before they fell to Bayern 2-1 in the final at Wembley in May this year.

Despite Munich’s greater buying power, both sides sit joint top of the Bundesliga table after six matches on 16 points with an identical goal difference.
