Chelsea and Manchester City are both waiting in the wings if Bayern Munich offload striker Robert Lewandowski,  according to the Sun.

The Polish international looks to have burned a few bridges at the Allianz Arena after criticising the club’s board, and it seems the German club may seek to replace him this summer with Inter Milan’s Mauro Icardi.

Now 29, Lewandowski is now at the peak of his career, and he continues to be prolific in front of goal with 16 goals in 17 appearances this season. There are question marks however over whether Chelsea would sanction a move for the forward

Blues owner Roman Abramovich has rarely sanctioned big money moves for players nearing 30, while manager Antonio Conte is likely happy having Alvaro Morata as his first choice striker.

Chelsea are said to be on the look out for a new forward in the January transfer window, but it looks as though Conte is looking for someone who can perform as an impact substitute; something that Lewandowski would certainly not be used as.
