Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has reportedly instructed his agent to sort him a transfer to one of four major European clubs, one of whom is Chelsea.
The Poland international wants a change of scene this summer after four seasons with Bayern, for whom he’s been a prolific scorer and star player.
Chelsea would certainly benefit from a talent like him in their ranks, and he’s eager to join either the Blues, Paris Saint-Germain or Real Madrid, according to L’Equipe, as translated by the Metro.
It’s claimed in the report that although Bayern are under no pressure to sell, £60million could be enough for them to let their top scorer go this summer.
That seems a potential bargain for Chelsea, who paid a similar amount for Alvaro Morata last summer – a less proven player, and, based on evidence so far, a less convincing option up front for them.
Lewandowski would surely be an upgrade with 145 goals in 187 appearances for Bayern, and with the all-round talent, technique and physicality to be a success in the Premier League.
Chelsea, PSG and Real Madrid look to be the clubs in contention alongside one other unnamed side, and all teams have been approached by the player’s agent for talks already, according to the Metro.
Chelsea linked with stunning move for Manchester United star attacker next summer
Chelsea are reportedly keeping tabs on Manchester United winger Anthony Martial, after he dropped down the pecking order at Old Trafford.
The France international is one of most promising players at his age after he signed from AS Monaco in 2015. Following his arrival of Jose Mourinho at the club, his chances at first team opportunities have been limited.
The Portuguese manager prefers to have Jesse Lingard or Marcus Rashford on the wings instead of the French forward.
This has led to tensions increasing in the club’s dressing room according to multiple reports in England, but Daily Star now say Chelsea are among four England clubs interested in taking him up, after claims that he is set to reject a five-year deal to remain at Old Trafford.
With Chelsea falling back in the race to be champion of England and finding it increasingly difficult in landing top targets, perhaps signing the former Monaco forward will make more sense.
His ability is also not in question although the small matter of ironing out consistency from him will be key for any manager that completes the deal for him.
He has made 131 appearances for Man United and scored 36 goals in the three years he’s been at the club.
