CHELSEA HAVE LOOKED at signing Robert Lewandowski and believe there's a glimmer of hope despite Bayern Munich's resistance to even entertain losing their world-class forward to a Champions League rival next season.
Man United face a similar problem to Chelsea this summer. Bayern Munich waste no thought on a Lewandowski move.
In the statement, Bayern said: "Robert Lewandowski has a contract with FC Bayern, which he recently extended to 2021". Immediately after the last game, I felt anger.
The Polish worldwide is the sort of player whose goals can fire a team to a title. United remain keen on striking a deal with Real Madrid for Spanish global Alvaro Morata. The Poland worldwide is quite simply one of the best strikers in the world.
There has been some suggestion of problems between Lewandowski and Bayern, with his agent Maik Barthel saying in an interview that the player wanted greater support from his team-mates to end the season as the Bundesliga top goalscorer.
The player's agent also spoke to the media about Lewandowski's recent season at Bayern, further fuelling speculation. Bayern does not have to worry about a change from Lewandowski.
Taking to Twitter, Balague said that Chelsea and United have spoken to Lewandowski's representatives over a potential move, with the Stamford Bridge club front-runners to secure the 28-year-old.
What difference would he make at Manchester United?
However, in a statement released on Sky Germany's Twitter account, Bayern looked to nip any possible speculation in the bud by threatening to complain to Federation Internationale de Football Association about any club that wanted to try and lure the Poland worldwide away from the Bundesliga giants. "If other clubs negotiate with players who have long-term contracts they risk getting sanctioned by Federation Internationale de Football Association".
