Chelsea are reportedly closely monitoring Robert Lewandowski’s situation this transfer window. The English club could make an offer of 60 million euros to Bayern Munich to recruit the Pole. A proposal that would seal Barça’s chances of being able to sign him.
According to the information provided by Sport, the Blues are very interested in the case of Robert Lewandowski. The London leaders could take advantage of the difficulties encountered by Barça to blow the Pole away from them. Some English sources claim that a €60m offer is in the works which would surely seal the hopes of the Catalans, whose proposal doesn’t expect €40m. Such an offensive from Chelsea would make it very difficult for the striker to explain to the leaders of Bayern Munich that his preference is always for the Spanish club. If they seem ready to let him go one year from the end of his contract, the Bavarians do not plan to sell him off.
Ekitike still targeted to strengthen Bayern’s attack?
Bayern Munich announced the signing of Sadio Mané on Wednesday. An agreement has been reached with Liverpool for a transfer of around 41 million euros, bonus included. The Senegalese international has signed a lease until June 2025. The striker is the Bavarian club’s third reinforcement this summer, after Noussair Mazraoui and Ryan Gravenberch, who arrived from Ajax Amsterdam. It now remains to be seen whether the Germans will recruit another goalscorer, should Robert Lewandowski leave. The name of Hugo Ekitike (Reims) has notably been linked to the Bundesliga champion in recent days.
As a reminder, the Polish international (132 caps, 76 goals) was once again one of the most prolific scorers in Europe this season. The Warszawa native has scored 50 goals and provided 7 assists in 46 appearances in all competitions. His departure would certainly weaken the team of Julian Nagelsmann.
