Chelsea are being linked with a sensational bid for Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski this summer, with a figure of £100 million being touted in some reports – but the club’s loyal fans definitely aren’t getting too excited.
The Blues are currently about to enter what looks like something of a rebuilding stage this summer, with manager Antonio Conte tipped to leave after two seasons in London, and record signing Alvaro Morata also linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge too.
And the Telegraph are claiming that whoever the new Chelsea manager transpires to be will have the use of Lewandowski next season, with owner Roman Abramovich sanctioning a splurge of the highest order to capture one of world football’s most feared strikers.
But given the fees mentioned, and the fact that Lewandowski turns 30 this August, and the fact that Chelsea won’t be playing Champions League football next summer, there’s a lot of supporters out there who simply refuse to believe the incredible move is going to happen:
Not even getting hyped up about the Lewandowski rumours, we all know we’ll end up with Andy Carroll

Robert Lewandowski is exactly the calibre of player Chelsea should be looking at, so I’d like to welcome Salomon Rondon to Stamford Bridge

The response from this lot seems pretty emphatic, but what do you make of the reports?
Is there any way Chelsea could really pull this off?
