Bayern coach Jupp Heynckes revealed after the game that Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski was on the verge of completing a move to the Allianz Arena.
The former West Germany international was addressing the press after Arjen Robben had clinched the Champions League trophy at Wembley with his 89th-minute winner for the Bavarian club, as ESPN reported.
But now Heynckes, who will step down for incoming head coach Pep Guardiola after the German Cup final next weekend, has rubbed salt in the Dortmund wound by announcing that Lewandowski is poised to make the same move:
Mario Gotze is already there (at Bayern Munich), and Robert Lewandowski will not have to wait too long now.
Then the team has two top-class attacking players. It is quite possible that, with the right signings, Bayern could create a new era in Europe.
The Poland international has scored 36 times in 49 appearances for club and country this season and was also the spearhead for Dortmund's Bundesliga title wins in 2011 and 2012.
