Chelsea, Man United and PSG enter race for superstar striker Lewandowski

Chelsea, Manchester United and PSG are all looking to rival Barcelona for the signature of Bayern Munich’s want-away striker Robert Lewandowski.

Poland captain Lewandowski has scored a quite ridiculous 238 goals in 253 Bundesliga games since moving to Bavaria from divisional rivals Borussia Dortmund in 2014. However, the 33-year-old has been vocal about his desire to leave the German champions this summer with Barcelona thought to be his desired destination.

Barca’s well-publicised financial issues are making a deal difficult with the Camp Nou outfit needing to offload a host of first-team players in order to finance a deal for the £400,000-a-week striker.

Lewandowski’s contract expires in the summer of 2023, with Bayern making it clear they will not allow him to leave for free, and according to The Sun, Manchester United are exploring the possibility of signing the prolific forward for a fee of around £20 million.

United’s Premier League rivals Chelsea are also interested, according to The Star, although the Stamford Bridge outfit will only be able to make a move if they offload £97.5 million flop Romelu Lukaku.

Finally, French publication L’Equipe are reporting that PSG would like to bring Lewandowski to Paris where he would link up with Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, and Lionel Messi.

Although it’s clear that Lewandowski wants to leave Bayern and has his heart set on playing under Xavi at Barcelona, the Polish attacker won’t be shy of offers if that deal does not come to fruition.
