Are you still holding out hope for Robert Lewandowski to come to Chelsea this summer?

Alex Grimm

Well, I have some good news and some bad news.

First, the good news.

It's not really a shocking secret that Robert Lewandowski is not long for his locker at Borussia Dortmund, but I believe this is the first time that the highly coveted 24-year-old Polish center forward has come out and publicly confirmed it. To wit:

"Ich gehe davon aus, dass nun alles geklärt wird und ich diesen Sommer zu meinem Wunschverein wechseln darf. Das wäre für alle Seiten das Beste."

Trans-lator-mogrified:

"I'm assuming that now everything is clear and I may change my desire club this summer. That would be the best for all parties."

And this where the bad news comes in, as even though Lewandowski stops short of actually naming which club his desire may fancy next, I think it's safe to assume that it is in fact Bayern Munich.

Just a few days ago, Cezary Kucharski, ex-Poland international who is either an agent or an advisor to the man with 36 goals, gave the following nugget to a Polish news channel:

To jest sprawa tygodnia, dwóch, może trzech - tak o ewentualnym transferze Roberta Lewandowskiego do Monachium mówi jego agent, Cezary Kucharski. We "Wstajesz i wiesz" na pytanie, czy Polak przejdzie do mistrza Niemiec, odpowiedział: Tak. Z drugiej strony potwierdził, że... Bayern oficjalnie oferty Polakowi nie złożył.

My Polish is better than my German but let's run it through the translator just to be sure:

It is a matter of a week, two, or three - so a possible transfer to Munich Robert Lewandowski says his agent, Cezary Kucharski. In "You get up and you know" to the question whether the Pole goes to German champions, said: Yes. On the other hand confirmed that ... Bayern officially offer Pole failed.

So, even though Bayern's (first?) official offer has been rejected - as we may recall, there were rumblings out of Dortmund that they'd much rather sell to pretty much anybody other than Bayern - the agent still believes that Lewandowski will end up in Munich ("Yes") and in just a matter of a few weeks.

And that's your good news / bad news for this Friday morning.
