Robert Lewandowski and Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heynckes may have dismissed rumours the Poland worldwide is set to leave the club, but speculation continues to intensify, with new reports saying Chelsea and Manchester United will battle it out for the striker.
Reports in Lewandowski's native Poland said Pini Zahavi, who was central to Neymar's world-record move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain, could replace Kucharski, who had represented the striker since his days at Polish team Znicz Pruzskow.
Neil Ashton is reporting that Chelsea have moved to the front of the queue for Robert Lewandowski.
Heading towards the exit door?
According to a report from The Sun, the Poland worldwide is toying with an idea of moving to the Premier League at the end of the season and could well and truly land at the Stamford Bridge.
Real Madrid has also been touted as a potential destination for the striker in recent weeks, with the reigning European champions set to shuffle the pack in their attack and search for a new centre forward.
Chelsea have been struggling for goals this campaign with Alvaro Morata now on a barren run, and United will be looking to add competition to Romelu Lukaku for their No.9 spot.
Moreover, Chelsea went out and signed Frenchman Olivier Giroud in the January transfer window from Arsenal.
The Blues are offering the 27-year-old a wage-packet worth somewhere in the region of £15 million-a-year to stay at Stamford Bridge, that will make him the highest paid player in the Premier League.
Chelsea hoping to sign Lewandowski next summer?
Jose Mourinho's Manchester United meanwhile also continue to be linked with Lewandowski.
Lewandowski struck twice last Tuesday when Bayern thrashed Besiktas 5-0 in Munich in the Champions League and has scored 29 goals this season in all competitions.
