Manchester City lead both Chelsea and Manchester United in the race to sign Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski, according to the Mirror journalist Neil Moxley.

The Polish international has fallen out with Bayern’s hierarchy after questioning the club’s ambition and transfer policy over the past few weeks. It led to a public dressing down from the club’s chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

With relations fractured, it could lead to the 29 year old leaving the Allianz Arena in January, with City the likeliest port of call. Manager Pep Guardiola worked with the striker for two years at Bayern between 2014 and 2016.

During Guardiola’s time in charge, Lewandowski scored a hugely impressive 67 goals in all competitions, including 30 Bundesliga goals in 32 league appearances during the 2015/16 season, helping the club to a league and cup double.

It is likely that if Bayern do decide to cash in on the Pole they will be looking for a high transfer fee as the forward only signed a new four and a half year contract last December.
