Robert Lewandowski is interested in a move to Spain despite Chelsea making ‘contact’ with the Bayern Munich forward over a summer transfer.
Lewandowski has been linked with an exit from Bayern Munich this summer with a host of Europe’s leading clubs monitoring the Poland international, Paris Saint-Germain, Barcelona and Chelsea all interested in his signing.
The 32-year-old has spent seven seasons with the Bundesliga champions and has won seven consecutive league titles and the Champions League, scoring an incredible 293 goals in just 328 appearances to become the second-highest scorer in both the club’s and German top flight’s history.
Lewandowski scored his 40th league goal of the season last weekend to level the all-time record set by Gerd Muller in 1971/72, with the forward facing Augsburg on Saturday on the final day of the season bidding to break the record outright.
Sky Deutschland are reporting that could prove to be the star’s final Bundesliga appearance for the Bavarians with Chelsea having already made contact about a possible transfer.
Chelsea are interested in signing a new centre-forward with Tammy Abraham expected to depart, though the Premier League is not understood to be the preferred destination of the prolific Pole.
Lewandowski would favour a move to Spanish football and Barcelona should he leave Bayern, though the Catalan club’s concerning finances make a deal appear difficult.
Ronald Koeman’s side are pushing ahead with cost-efficient methods of strengthening at present with forwards Memphis Depay and Sergio Aguero expected to arrive at the Camp Nou on free transfers from Lyon and Manchester City respectively.
