How have Bayern Munich got Robert Lewandowski for free?!
The Bavarian giants and reigning Champions League winners announced on Saturday night that they have completed the free signing of Polish hitman Lewandowski for rivals Dortmund for absolutely nothing.
Lewandowski’s contract with Borussia ends at the end of the season, are Dortmund are helpless at letting the world class centre-forward leave for the Allianz Arena without getting a penny from the move.
While the move has been mooted for a long while now, the realisation that Pep Guardiola has signed one of the most sought-after attackers for no transfer fee have provoked plenty of comments.

Lewandowski for free should be the bargain of the century. Oh no! Carroll to Liverpool tops the list.

Bayern will now have two of Europe's best strikers next season and they only spent a little over 10m Euros. Doesn't get much shrewder.
