Forgetting the Mourinho bit (I think we’ve all had enough to the speculation now) what does everyone think about signing Lewandowski?
The 24-year-old Polish international has been touted as a long-term target for Manchester United but there would have to be a high profile departure at Old Trafford to make room for him as they already possess Robin van Persie, Javier Hernandez, Danny Welbeck and Wayne Rooney, with Rooney being linked with a move to Paris Saint-Germain.
Apparently Mourinho is impressed with Lewandowski as he has been watching plenty of Dortmund matches as he prepares his Real Madrid side for their Champions League semi-final clash against the Bundesliga club. The Pole has a market value of around £24 million, according to the Express, and arguably represents better value for money than Edinson Cavani or Radamel Falcao who could cost up to twice as much.
The other thing that stands in Lewandowski’s favour is his youth as he has a few more years in him than Cavani (26) and Falcao (27), even though neither of those players can be considered old. Don’t get me wrong, I think Falcao is the best forward in the world at the moment and I would love to have him but Lewandowski’s link-up play is better in my opinion and he’s more than used to playing in a 4-2-3-1 formation which could make him the perfect fit for Chelsea.
He has an impressive goal scoring record with 30 goals this season so far and has made 10 assists for Die Schwarzgelben over the course of the campaign. He’s widely expected to leave the Westfalenstadion this season, would Chelsea be missing a trick if they don’t at least attempt to sign this man?
