Robert Lewandowski reaches agreement with Chelsea as take over finally completed
Robert Lewandowski has dropped a transfer hint over his future after the 33-year-old forward has confirmed his intention to not sign a contract extension with Bayern Munich.
Speaking to Sky Germany whilst at the Monaco Grand Prix on Sunday, Lewandowski replied to questions over his future by stating that “The time will come to give information. Soon it will be possible to say more.”
Lewandowski is expected to sign for Barcelona should he leave Bayern this window with the La Liga giants favourite for his signature. However, Chelsea have been linked with Lewandowski in recent weeks, with hopes of securing the forward should the chance arise.
As reported by The Guardian, Chelsea could join the race to sign Lewandowski despite the Bayern Munich forward favouring a move to Barcelona.
It is claimed Thomas Tuchel is a huge admirer of Lewandowski, who has scored 343 goals since joining Bayern in 2014, and would have loved to bring him to Chelsea last summer. Chelsea have been linked to another Bundesliga forward in RB Leipzig’s Christopher Nkunku, who is also rumoured to be leaving Germany this summer.
