Bayern Munich Want to Keep Lewandowski Amid Chelsea Interest
Bayern Munich want to keep Polish star Robert Lewandowski despite Chelsea’s interest in the forward, according to reports.
With two years left on his current deal at the Allianz Arena, the Poland international is being monitored by several top clubs across Europe, including Chelsea.
As per Nizaar Kinsella, the German club want to keep Lewandowski ‘at all costs’ and it will take an ‘extraordinary amount of money’ to convince Bayern to sell.
According to reports, the striker is keen for ‘one last adventure’ before his career ends but Bayern Munich are hoping the striker signs a new contract.
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has a close relationship with the Poland international’s agent Zahavi, with both living in Tel Aviv, Israel.
The Blues have a long standing interest in Lewandowski, who broke the Bundeliga goal record last season as he scored his 41st in the final minutes of the last game of the Bundesliga season.
Chelsea have been keeping an eye on the World Cup winner and are looking to lure him to London this summer, but Thomas Tuchel will have to sell players first.
The Blues have already offloaded £50 million worth of players but are set to sell even more.
Kurt Zouma has been linked with a move away whilst Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen are no closer to securing contract extensions in London.
Zouma has two years left on his current deal at Stamford Bridge, but with Blues boss Thomas Tuchel targeting a centre-back signing before the start of next season, the France international could end his seven-year association with the Champions League winners.
But with Dortmund resistance to Chelsea offer, the blues will be giving more attention to Lewandoski who love to move from Bayern Munich
