3. Robert Lewandowski

He still breaks the hearts of Borussia Dortmund fans to this day, but nobody can deny the impactful career that Robert Lewandowski has had. He is one of the best strikers to ever play for Dortmund but unfortunately, the same can be said for Bayern Munich.

Lewandowski made the controversial switch in 2014 and I am reluctant to say, he never looked back. Despite having everything it took to become a club legend at Dortmund, he is more remembered for his time with Bundesliga rivals, Bayern Munich.

After leaving Dortmund, Lewandowski won the Bundesliga eight times in successive seasons, the DFB-Pukal three times and the Champions League once. Now he plays for Barcelona, where he has already won one La Liga title. He has turned every club he's touched into gold, much to the annoyance of die-hard Dortmund fans.
