Robert Lewandowski has committed his allegiance to Bayern Munich amidst rumours that Chelsea were interested in signing him.
During an interview with Tuttosport, Lewandowski admitted he was happy at Bayern and didn’t plan on moving soon.
“I have a contract at Bayern and I am very good at this club,” said the sensational striker.
This won’t be great reading for Chelsea fans who thought they had a chance at snapping up Lewandowski in the summer.
According to ESPN, the Blues had recently emerged as contenders to lure the 32-year-old away from Germany.
Up until his recent statement, it was uncertain where the Polish international would be playing his football next season.
Any team would have been lucky to acquire his striking services.
In 38 appearances this term, he’s scored an unprecedented 46 goals across all competitions.
Put into context, that’s more than Timo Werner, Tammy Abraham, Olivier Giroud and Kai Havertz have managed combined.
That statistic simply highlights Chelsea’s need for a new centre-forward, hence their apparent interest in Lewandowski.
With the towering Pole seemingly out of the equation, other alternatives might have to be discussed.
Erling Haaland, Sergio Aguero and Romelu Lukaku seem to be on the transfer podium at present.
Things have been pretty hushed recently in the recruitment department, as Thomas Tuchel remains focused on his current task.
He has the chance to win both the FA Cup and Champions League, whilst finishing inside the Premier League top four, after just four months in charge of Chelsea.
