Manchester United and Chelsea are reportedly battling for the signature of Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski this summer, with hints from the player’s agent that he was “disappointed” with the club and manager.
According to Sky Sports, the Bayern centre-forward could be on the market as a result of grievances with last season’s German Bundesliga champions.
Manchester United and Chelsea are both in the market for the centre-forward Arsenal tried to sign in 2016, and Lewandowski blamed his teammates for him missing out on the 2016/17 Golden Boot by a single goal – opening the door to a potential exit.
“ I was not really happy with how my team helped me. I was annoyed and disappointed with the team’s attitude,” he said to the Polish Super Express. His agent echoed his statement, saying: “ Robert told me that he got no support and that the coach (Carlo Ancelotti) gave no call to help him win the top-scorer title in the last game. He was disappointed as I have ever seen him before.”
Lewandowski, 28, scored 30 goals in 33 Bundesliga games last season, but finished just short of Borussia Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. He’s believed to be the subject of bids from Manchester United and Chelsea while Arsenal might keep an eye on his availability as they seek a marquee signing to fire them to the title in 2017/18.
