Betting Special: Bayern Munich favourites to sign Lewandowski

With Borussia Dortmund resigned to losing the Poland international this summer, there are a whole host of clubs vying for his signature, and Hugh Wilson looks at the odds

It comes as no surprise that Robert Lewandowski has a number of admirers throughout European football tracking his progress this summer. The 24-year-old Poland international has one year left on his contract at Borussia Dortmud, but many expect one of the European giants to make a move in the next couple of months.
For those few that hadn’t heard of Lewandowski before this season, his impact for Dortmund in this year’s Champions League certainly put him on the map.

The striker has netted 10 times in 12 matches, including scoring four goals in the quarter-final first leg against Real Madrid.

His season could yet reach the most momentous of climaxes as his Dortmund side prepare face German rivals Bayern Munich next week in the final at Wembley – and he may just tempt his principal suitors to make a move.

It is Bayern who are current favourites to sign him in the summer, with BetVictor pricing them at 4/5 (1.80) to land him before August 30 2013.

Bayern have already snapped up one of Dortmund’s stars in recent weeks. 20-year-old Mario Gotze came through the youth system at BVB, but has elected to jump ship and will join the Bundesliga Champions this summer.

Bayern aren’t the only top European side to be linked with Lewandowski though. Manchester United have expressed their interest previously, and with his contract up in a year, it’s likely a deal could be made this summer.

United chose to go with Robin van Persie last season, and although they are second favourites to sign Lewandowski at 5/2 (3.50), this price seems very short for a side with a top main striker already in their ranks.

United aren’t the only Premier League side to be interested in the Dortmund star. Newly-crowned Europa League champions Chelsea have been keeping tabs on the player, and with Ramadel Falcao seemingly set to join Monaco, they could look to make a move for Lewandowski instead. The Blues represent a viable destination at 5/1 (6.00).
