Speaking to Polish TV station TVN, the Borussia Dortmund striker’s agent Cezary Kucharski claimed the transfer saga could come to an end within a fortnight.

"I will not pretend otherwise," Kucharski said on Monday when asked if his client will join Bayern. "Robert wants to go and will go. I cannot tell when he will go, or the amount of the transfer. It is a matter of a week, two, maybe three.

"For us, the case is clear, but he has not signed yet. The clubs must reach an agreement. I am hoping they stick by the word they have given Robert.

"Robert feels well in Dortmund and he has got an outstanding coach and incredible fans. But if there is the chance to play for another club we want to take it."

Kucharski echoed the words of outgoing Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes, who had claimed that Bayern "will not have to wait too long" for Lewandowski during the post-match press conference on Saturday.

While Dortmund CEO Aki Watzke had responded that Heynckes should focus on winning the DFB-Pokal next weekend and indicated they had no official offer for Lewandowski, who scored 10 goals during Dortmund’s 2012 Champions League campaign, including four in the first semi-final against Real Madrid.

Poland international Robert Lewandowski joined Borussia Dortmund from Lech Poznan in 2010. He scored 54 goals in 98 Bundesliga apperances for this year’s Champions League runners-up and added a further 20 in Europe and DFB-Pokal.
