Chelsea are preparing a £50 million bid for Robert Lewandowski. after the rejection of the Erling Haaland exchange deal
Chelsea are said to be interested in Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski.
Chelsea have reportedly moved their focus to Robert Lewandowski, with the club willing to put the Polish international ahead of Erling Haaland in the transfer market. The Bayern Munich striker’s current deal in Germany has two years left on it, but he has intimated on multiple times that he may want to try something different for the rest of his career.
He’s a gamer. Thomas Tuchel is familiar with him from his time with Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga, but he has never worked with him.
Chelsea are aiming to bolster their attack with a new star signing, and Haaland is at the top of their want list.
Dortmund, on the other hand, is continuing to play hardball and insisting that the Norwegian will not be sold at any price.
A player-plus-cash deal involving Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi was reportedly rejected by the Blues earlier this week.
JUST IN: After conversations, Chelsea chiefs were taken aback by the unexpected Erling Haaland transfer development.
According to The Sun, they have turned their attention to Lewandowski as a result of this.
Chelsea are willing to break their club record in order to sign Haaland, but he might cost as much as £150 million.
Dortmund, according to reports in Germany, would actually accept £150 million, which has astonished Chelsea.
Instead, a £50 million deal for Lewandowski is rumored to be on the cards.
Bayern Munich are unlikely to lose their talismanic centre-forward, but his desire to play in a different league has given Chelsea optimism.
He’s 32 now and would be a different kind of investment than Haaland, his Bundesliga competitor.
The 20-year-old is considering a move to Chelsea, but he will honor his Dortmund contract.
Haaland’s £64 million release clause comes into effect next year.
Manchester United, Barcelona, and Real Madrid are all anticipated to be present at the meeting.
Along with Haaland’s father Alf-Inge, Mino Raiola has previously held conversations with both Spanish giants.
Neither Barcelona nor Real Madrid can afford the player this summer, but in a year’s time, things may be different.
That is why Chelsea is anxious to sign Haaland, but a £150 million fee is simply too high, and they will not be held hostage by Dortmund.
