Lewandowski seeks Dortmund exit
Created on Jun. 05, 2013 4:28 PM EST
Robert Lewandowski has confirmed his intention to leave Borussia Dortmund, amid growing reports of a move to Bayern Munich.
The Poland international striker has been a key figure in Dortmund's recent success and was part of the side that lost the UEFA Champions League final to Bayern in May.
With the 24-year-old's contract set to enter its final year, it looks likely the club will sanction a move, a decision that Lewandowski believes makes sense for all concerned.
"I expect everything to be cleared up now so that I will be allowed to move to my dream club this summer," he told Sport Bild.
"That would be best for everybody involved.
"Dortmund are a fantastic club whom I will always admire. It's just now I want a new challenge for my future.
"Our relationship is very trusting. I'm sure that I can rely on Dortmund, and we can find a common solution."
If Lewandowski were to join Bayern, he would follow Mario Goetze in leaving Dortmund for the Allianz Arena.Goetze's transfer was announced shortly before the club's Champions League semi-final against Real Madrid.
