6 deals that could break transfer records this summer: £130m Manchester United raid, Chelsea striker swoop and shock Arsenal move

Robert Lewandowski to Chelsea (£100m)

Recently linked as a potential £100m target for Chelsea by the Telegraph, it does look like Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski will be one of the big names on the move this summer.

Alvaro Morata urgently needs replacing at Stamford Bridge, so £100m on one of the best strikers in the world seems a decent price to pay to finally solve that centre-forward problem.

Robert Lewandowski Chelsea transfer boost as his agent confirms desire to leave Bayern Munich

His agent has been quoted in Bild as saying he wants to leave Bayern and that his club are aware of the situation, so this looks a real opportunity for Chelsea.

If this does go through it would eclipse the club-record fee of £60m that BBC Sport claim Chelsea paid for Alvaro Morata last year by some way.

Riyad Mahrez to Manchester City (£75m)

It’s quite hard to believe, but Manchester City’s current club record transfer fee paid is still only £57m, which they forked out for Aymeric Laporte in January, according to BBC Sport.

That could be about to change pretty soon, however, with the club making progress on an exciting deal to sign Riyad Mahrez from Leicester City for £75m, according to the Sun.

The Algeria international seems ideal for City as they look to add more depth to their attack, and it’s frightening to imagine how good Pep Guardiola’s side will be with him alongside the likes of Raheem Sterling, Leroy Sane and Sergio Aguero.

Mahrez has won the Premier League and PFA Player of the Year with Leicester and that means a big price tag is no surprise, but it should be simple enough for City to pay.
