Raphael Honigstein has ruled out Chelsea FC signing Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowki this summer.

The Poland international has been linked with a move away from Bayern Munich this summer winning a sixth Bundesliga title last term.

The 29-year-old is thought to be very keen on a switch to Champions League winners Real Madrid following four seasons at the Allianz Arena.

Bayern have insisted that Lewandowski won’t be sold in the current transfer market despite the Polish forward jostling for a move.

Chelsea FC and Manchester United have been touted with an interest in the Poland international this summer to bolster their attacking ranks.

The Blues could be in the market to sign a centre-forward given Alvaro Morata is being linked with a return to Serie A.

Bundesliga expert Honigstein believes Bayern won’t sell Lewandowski in the summer transfer window.

“It is unconceivable that Bayern will rip up the script and go for another striker as well as sell him,” Honigstein told ESPN FC.

Chelsea FC finished in fifth place in the Premier League table last season to miss out on a Champions League spot.

The Blues were 1-0 winners against Manchester United in the FA Cup final to end the season with some silverware.
