Lewandowski Unlikely to Come!

Although Sir Alex Ferguson may have been a little more confident of signing the Polish striker, Robert Lewandowski, following Bayern Munich`s capture of Mario Goetze, that may not now be the case.

It`s being reported this morning that the prolific 24 year-old Borussia Dortmund striker wants to remain in Germany, thereby indicating that the forward is, after all, bound for the Bavarian giants.

The German papers seem to be the most accurate sources with regards to this saga. From what I understand there has been a lot of tapping up from Bayern in an attempt to get Borussia players. However, despite the tapping up Lewandowski is a different story, they might've tapped him up but ultimately there's no release clause in his contract therefore Borussia aren't obliged to sell him to them specifically and after the Götze deal you suspect the last people they'd want to sell him to is Bayern and would sooner see him go elsewhere or wait until his contract expires. With that considered there is a chance we could get him, we've just got to sway his mind from the indoctrination of Bayern. Personally don't get why Bayern are after Lewandowski. If he's a Guardiola target then it makes little sense as Lewandowski isn't a false 9 like Pep likes to play. I suppose Pep could change his system but that seems unlikely when you look at his Barca years and how they only had one game plan. Personally would say Bayern are going about winning the bundesliga in the most deplorable manner, it's one thing to win the league by stretching your financial clout and bringing in foreign players but winning the league through buying the oppositions best players just to destroy the competition? All that's doing is weakening the league and sending out the wrong message. On the back of it you can't help but hope Borussia reclaim the bundesliga title via shrewd reinvestment of the money they receive from outgoing players. Lost some respect for pep if its true and bayerns poaching of Borussia best players is down to him. Winning the bundesliga by weakening the opposition is no achievement. Personally can't see how he can take them anyway but sideways or down. If he wins after weakening the main competitor you kind of expect it, there's no challenge whereas if he flops people will quickly jump on his back. I think pep trying to implement his style and philosophy is the worst thing he could do at this point in bayerns development. Got sidetracked a bit here :P
