Robert Lewandowski's move to Bayern Munich is off according to Borussia Dortmund chief

Lewandowski had appeared to be on the verge of completing his “dream move” to Bayern at the end of last week, but Dortmund president Hans-Joachinn Watzke is adamant they will not allow him to join their bitter domestic rivals. “Lewandowski will definitely not go to Bayern in 2013,” said Watke in an interview with the German sports paper Bild. “This is final.” That may merely delay the inevitable as Lewandowski will be out of contract next summer and free to join Bayern then, but it could also give Manchester United renewed interest in the striker, one of the hottest talents in Europe. United have previously expressed an interest in signing the Poland international, but the player appeared to be determined to follow his Dortmund teammate, Mario Gotze , to Munich. Manchester City and even Chelsea may also look to exploit Dortmund’s reluctance to lose one of their best players to the side that beat them in both domestic and European football this season, most notably the Champions League final at Wembley last month.
