THE BALL – Chelsea attentive to Lewandowski (Bayern Munich)

Chelsea are attentive to the situation of Robert Lewandowski, who has announced his intention to leave Bayern Munich and has Barcelona as the main interested party. That also seems to be the player’s will, despite the Catalan club’s obvious economic struggles.

The newspaper The Guardian writes that the Londoners – despite the freezing of accounts and the ongoing sale process – are keeping tabs on the Pole, a former interested party of coach Thomas Tuchel. Lewandowski – whose contract expires in 2023 – was already an earlier interest, but the club ended up signing Romelu Lukaku.

Lewandowski will have already penned a three-year contract with Barcelona, ​​it remains to be seen if Bayern will keep a firm grip and force the player to fulfill the contract, later leaving free, or if they prefer to negotiate now and do a few . profit. The Guardian writes that the Bavarians have resisted negotiations with Barcelona over fears the club will default.

For all of this, Chelsea appear to be on the prowl, although they can’t make any deals just yet – it’s expected that the consortium led by businessman Todd Boehly could soon take over the club to Roman Abramovich and then it remains to be seen what budget the club will have for the new season. Note that the defense will have to be the first to strengthen, with the departures of Christensen and Rudiger already known.
