After finishing as the top goalscorer with Polish league winners Lech Poznan in 2009/10, Robert Lewandowski moved to Borussia Dortmund for a fee of around €4.5 million. At the time, he was also being pursued by Genoa and Blackburn, but the volcanic ash cloud of 2010 scuppered his travel plans and directed his fate towards the Bundesliga.
The Polish striker has since scored 44 goals in Germany's top flight and was an integral component of Borussia Dortmund's domestic double-winning side of last season.
Much to the ire of Juergen Klopp, however, rumors of a transfer elsewhere have been abundant for many months.
Lewandowski has thus far refused to renew a contract that expires in 2014, and Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc this week confirmed the inevitable news that he will leave (via The Express):
"Robert [Lewandowski] will not renew his contract, he is either [leaving] this summer or in the summer of 2014," said Zorc.
With agent Cezary Kucharsky also implying that his client has already decided when and where he will go, here are the Pole's five most likely destinations.
