Five destinations for in-demand striker Robert Lewandowski

Chelsea, Tottenham, Manchester City and Manchester United are among the clubs who could make a play for one of Europe's top strikers this summer.

After scoring more than 30 goals last season for Borussia Dortmund, the freescoring striker has followed it up by bagging 24 already this campaign.

With just one year left on his current contract, his refusal to sign another means Dortmund are certain to cash in on the Pole, alerting a number of Europe's top teams. 

Here are five clubs who should all be taking a look at signing the 24-year-old.

Bayern Munich

Sources in Germany claim Bayern Munich have already agreed a deal with the striker to switch from Dortmund, but Jurgen Klopp would surely be reluctant to strengthen the team which is an amazing 20-points above them by selling them their best striker. It makes sense that Pep Guardiola would look to a proven Bundesliga goalscorer as one of his marquee signings when he arrives in the summer, but Dortmund may well prefer to sell abroad...

Manchester United

Manchester United have been linked with signing Lewandowski since last summer, and in January it was claimed a deal is again very much on for this coming summer. Lewandowski's agent also confirmed United have been in touch, but with a number of strikers at the Red Devils' disposal they would have to offload one to bring in Lewandowski, most logically Javier Hernandez, and most controversially Wayne Rooney.


Chelsea have been strongly linked with signing Falcao from Atletico Madrid, but Lewandowski has three things going for him in favour of the Colombian. Firstly he is three years younger and so has more to give to the Blues, and secondly at around £30 million he would be only three-fifths of the huge fee Chelsea would have to pay for Falcao. Lewandowski has also shown this season he is capable in the Champions League, something Falcao has not had a chance to do.

Tottenham Hotspur

Why should Tottenham pursue a complicated deal for Leandro Damiao with his club and third party owners when signing Lewandowski is far more straightforward? The striker is proven in Europe and is a massive step up from Emmanuel Adebayor and can help Spurs make an impression in the Champions League next season.

Manchester City

Manchester City offloaded Mario Balotelli in January freeing up a squad space for a striker and money off their wage bill. It's clear they will go for a striker this summer and Lewandowski is available and cheaper than rumoured targets Edinson Cavani and Falcao. City saw Lewandowski first hand in the Champions League earlier this year and he is a striker the club will be well aware of, and cash certainly won't be a problem, nor will the desire to get one over on neighbours United.
