According to the club bosses, Robert Lewandowski will also play at Bayern in the coming season. Nevertheless, the rumors about the Polish superstar don’t stop. Now Chelsea FC is said to be getting into poker.
Accordingly, those responsible for the Premier League club are following the striker’s situation very closely and are considering making an offer for the 33-year-old.
Chelsea reportedly want to finance the transfer by selling Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian only plays a minor role under team manager Thomas Tuchel, but still earns around 20 million euros a year. Lukaku was recently traded as Lewandowski’s successor at Bayern Munich.
However, Chelsea’s hands are still tied because of the sanctions against club owner Roman Abramovich. Once the takeover by billionaire Todd Boehly goes through, the Lewandowski effort could take shape.
So far, FC Barcelona has been Lewandowski’s dream destination. Now the Catalans have to brace themselves for financially strong competition.
If the bosses of FC Bayern have their way, Lewandowski will also play for FC Bayern in the coming season. In an interview with the “Süddeutsche Zeitung”, President Herbert Hainer referred to the 33-year-old Pole’s contract, which runs for another year. “I’ve said it again and again in the last few days: He has a contract until 2023 – and Robert will fulfill it,” he emphasized.
Oliver Kahn speaks his word of power at Lewandowski
CEO Oliver Kahn had previously spoken a word of power. “He will fulfill this contract – that’s it!” Kahn said on Sunday at the championship celebration in Munich. Lewandowski’s advisor Pini Zahavi was recently made an offer to extend the contract beyond 2023, which he “rejected”, explained Kahn.
Lewandowski announced on Saturday after the last game in Wolfsburg that he no longer wanted to extend in Munich.
