According to a report from ESPN, Champions League finalists Chelsea and Manchester City are poised to make a move for Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski. The Premier League powers join Manchester United in having interest in the Poland international.
Lewandowski’s agent Pini Zahavi seems to be drumming up interest in his client in an effort to push the Bavarians along for a contract extension — and the tactic is working to perfection. Not only is Zahavi causing a stir, he is getting coverage from major outlets like ESPN:
Champions League finalists Chelsea and Manchester City have emerged as contenders to sign Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski this summer, sources told ESPN, with the striker undecided on his future.
Lewandowski, 32, has a contract at Bayern until 2023 and sources told ESPN that interested clubs would need to offer €60 million to start negotiations over a possible move.
While many clubs would not be able to start the bidding at €60 million for Lewandowski in this financial climate, Chelsea and Manchester City are two organizations that would seemingly have no issue with that figure.
For his part, Lewandowski has not said anything about wanting to leave Bayern Munich.
