For a long time it has been clear that Robert Lewandowski will be leaving Borussia Dortmund at the end of his contract which expires in July and a move to Bayern Munich looked imminent, perhaps even the worst kept secret in football, but could that now change?
Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City are amongst the clubs that will compete for the Polish international’s signature after he denied that he has already agreed to move to the Allianz Arena and admitted that he would like to play in the Premier League one day.
The 25-year-old said:
“I will be able to sign a contract (with any club) in January, but I have never said that I will sign a contract with Bayern.
“It was a misunderstanding. It is true I had an opportunity to speak with Sir Alex Ferguson (last year), but we didn’t mention the transfer. One day I would like to play in Premier League. It would be a great experience.”
This would be welcome news to those that are fans of the striker and amongst the majority of supporters that believe a new forward is a priority for the Blues.
I’m wondering what may have happened in relation to his expected move to Bayern Munich as even Jurgen Klopp implied that would be Lewandowski’s next club, has someone changed his mind, or maybe Pep Guardiola is happy with his current forwards?
After spending a huge amount on Fernando Torres the Blues have looked reluctant to spend big on another forward after passing up on both Radamel Falcao and Edinson Cavani in the summer. Perhaps Lewandowski could be Chelsea’s best option as he’d be fairly low risk as it’d be for free and he has plenty of football ahead of him.
Lewandowski has been prolific in the last two seasons, scoring 30 in 2011/12 and 36 in 2012/13, and has nine goals already this season.
