TRANSFER NEWS: Chelsea eye Lewandowski’s signature amid Barcelona’s interest
Chelsea Football Club is reportedly monitoring Robert Lewandowski’s situation at Bayern Munich and could join the race to sign the Polish attacker amid Barcelona’s interest.
Lewandowski’s future is up in the air after he made clear he was unwilling to extend his Bayern contract, which expires in the summer of 2023.
Though Barca is targeting a deal for the Bundesliga’s highest goal scorer, sources say Chelsea FC believe Lewandowski’s decision is a blessing in disguise for them.
Currently, Chelsea is sanctioned and unable to make transfers, which gives Barcelona an edge over them – but that’s projected to end soon, courtesy of Todd Boehly’s takeover.
Another challenge facing Chelsea is the fact that Lewandowski favours a move to Barcelona more than other top teams declaring interests.
Nonetheless, the battle for the striker’s signature is uncertain as well as his next destination.
