Chelsea and Real Madrid are reportedly leading the race to sign one of the best players in the world in the summer transfer window.
Both teams are enduring so-so campaigns having won their respective titles last time around. Premier League champions Chelsea have a fight on their hands to finish in the top four and qualify for the Champions League, whereas Real’s La Liga title challenge has been over for some time now.
The two sides will likely look to the transfer market in the coming summertime in order to strengthen their squads, and Bleacher Report believe that one target has already been identified – Robert Lewandowski.
The report claims that Lewandowski is open-minded about the possibility of leaving Bayern Munich in the summer, with Chelsea and Real Madrid thought to be leading the race to secure his signature.
This is the kind of signing we need to be making if we want to close the gap between ourselves and Manchester City. Unfortunately, we fear it may be nothing more than a pipe-dream.
