Robert Lewandowski will see out his Borussia Dortmund contract then join Champions League winner Bayern Munich for the 2014-15 season, turning down offers from England's Premier League, according to reports on Monday.

German daily Bild reported that Bayern is only planning on having the 24-year-old Poland striker in its squad for the start of the 2014-15 season with Dortmund insisting he will stay until his contract expires on June 2014.

"Robert will definitely play for Borussia Dortmund next season. We need some clarity in our planning," Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke told Sueddeutsche Zeitung newspaper after Lewandowski scored 24 league goals last season and 10 in Europe.

Reports says Lewandowski at Bayern for 2014-15

According to Bild, Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is reported to have confirmed to his agent that Lewandowski will join Bayern on a free transfer in June 2014.

With recent reports of interest from England's Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City, Borussia has denied reports it has already tripled Lewandowski's wages.

"That is complete nonsense," Dortmund's director of sport Michael Zorc said.

"It is clear to us that Robert's current salary isn't a correct illustration of the levels of his performances.

"Therefore we have signaled our readiness to raise his salary."

Having been German champion in both the 2010-11 and 2011-12 season, Dortmund needs to rebuild its title-winning team after midfield star Mario Goetze signed for Bayern for 37 million euros ($49.34 million).

Bayern is in no hurry to bring Lewandowski to Munich.

First-choice striker Mario Mandzukic scored 21 goals for the Bavarian giant, as it became the first German team to win the treble of league, cup and European titles.
