Dortmund give up on Lewandowski

Borussia Dortmund have given up any remaining hope of persuading Robert Lewandowski to sign a new contract at the club.

Lewandowski's current deal at Dortmund does not expire until June 2014, but his agent revealed earlier this week that the Poland international has already decided on his next destination.

The 24-year-old has been linked with potential moves to Bayern Munich, Manchester United and Juventus.

"Robert Lewandowski is not going to sign a new contract. We will have to see if he is going to be on the move in the summer," Borussia Dortmund director Michael Zorc told German Sky.

"His contract runs until 2014. There are two options. Either he goes in June or he stays for another year."

Lewandowski has bagged 44 goals in 87 appearances for the German club, helping them to two consecutive Bundesliga titles since his transfer from Lech Poznan in 2010.
