We reported last night that Chelsea could fail in their bid to sign Poland international Robert Lewandowski as Bayern Munich reaffirmed their commitment to prevent him from leaving Allianz Arena in the summer.
Despite the Bavarian’s decision to block any deal from materializing, Chelsea remain keen on the player’s signature and they are ready to make an outrageous offer when the summer transfer window officially begins in July.
According to reports from Daily Mirror, the Blues are considering a £80m move for his services after the summer World Cup in Russia.
However, the Blues will have to battle it out with Ligue 1 giants Paris St-German, who are also eyeing a big-money swoop for his signature.
PSG new manager Thomas Tuchel has identified the Polish striker as the best man to replace Neymar, should the Brazilian decides to join Real Madrid ahead of the upcoming season.
Meanwhile, Chelsea are also set to make move for Argentina striker Gonzalo Higuain, according to the Sun. The impressive Argentine is no longer needed by Juventus, despite his exploits for the Turin outfits since his switch from Santiago Bernabeu.
It is believed that Roman Abramovich is ready to get rid of Morata’s contract so as to create space for new and proven goalscorers in the summer.
Tuchel might, once again, be a stumbling block to Chelsea in their way to capture the veteran striker. The new PSG boss is also in the race to sign Higuain in the summer.
