EPL: Chelsea, Manchester United to battle for Lewandowski

0

Chelsea and Manchester United will battle for Robert Lewandowski’s signature this summer, if the player can persuade Bayern Munich to let him leave.

Sky Sports News reports Lewandowski is keen to leave Bayern and his future could become clearer in the next fortnight.

Despite being under contract until 2021, the Poland striker has hired super-agent Pini Zahavi to negotiate a deal, to release him from the Bundesliga leaders.

Zahavi however faces an uphill challenge, with Bayern not short of funds and expected to resist any attempts to lure the player away.

The Premier League teams are likely to face stiff competition from Real Madrid. PSG will also join the hunt if, as expected, Edinson Cavani leaves in the summer.

Since arriving in July 2014, Lewandowski has scored 97 goals in 108 Bundesliga games for Bayern.
