Guillem Balague claims Chelsea and Man United have spoken to top 28-year-old striker
The Spanish football expert reveals that Chelsea and Manchester United are both interested in sign Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski
Guillem Balague has claimed that Chelsea and Manchester United have both spoken to Robert Lewandowski about a potential summer switch.
The Poland international emerged as a target for Chelsea on Monday as the Blues looked for an alternative to Romelu Lukaku.
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has informed Diego Costa that he is free to leave the west London side this summer.
Manchester United, on the other hand, have been left frustrated in their pursuit of a centre-forward since the season ended.
Antoine Griezmann signed a new deal with Atletico Madrid earlier this month to end talk of a potential move to Manchester United.
The Red Devils have been linked with a potential move to sign Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata or Torino forward Andrea Belotti.
But Balague has taken to Twitter to claim that Chelsea and Manchester United have both been in touch with the Bayern Munich striker.
Balague wrote: “Lewandowski: Both Chelsea and MUFC have spoken to his agents. London preferred choice, but MUFC, very keen and last chat was yesterday.”
Lewandowski has established a reputation as one of the best strikers in Europe during spells at Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich.
The Polish striker has scored 77 times in 99 games in Bayern career so far.
