Robert Lewandowski transfer news: Bayern Munich star sparks £70m transfer war

Posted by

Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski will be the target of three Premier League clubs this summer with the trio set to bid up to £70m.

The prolific Polish international has continued to impress after moving to Bavaria from Dortmund, and in turn it has unsurprisingly ensured that he has attracted further attention from their rivals from around Europe.

All of England’s leading clubs are said to be in the hunt, with suggestions that the 27-year-old is currently considering his options ahead of the summer, as reported by The Independent.

Lewandowski has scored 23 goals in 26 appearances in all competitions so far this season, as Pep Guardiola will hope that the clinical frontman can continue to fire his side towards silverware both at home and abroad.

While Real Madrid and Barcelona are also expected to be in the hunt, it is noted that the new TV deal that comes into force in England next season will be a significant advantage for the likes of United, City and Chelsea who are willing to splash out up to £70m to acquire the striker.

United have struggled for goals under Louis van Gaal this season partly due to a lack of options and threat up front, while Diego Costa’s poor form has seen Chelsea falter in their bid to defend their Premier League crown.

City appear to be the most unlikely option given the attacking options already at Manuel Pellegrini’s disposal, but with Guardiola linked with a move to the Etihad Stadium at the end of the season, the Spanish tactician may well want a quick reunion with his striker.
