Transfer rumors: Chelsea, Manchester United in talks with Robert Lewandowski

'Lewandowski does not want to leave Bayern.

Bayern Munich have threatened to report Chelsea and Manchester United to Federation Internationale de Football Association over Robert Lewandowski.

Chelsea are now favourites to sign the striker at odds of 5/4, with United not too far behind at odds of 13/8.

However, his losses in both the Champions League and DFB-Pokal final in consecutive seasons to Bayern Munich suggested that he had yet to reach a club at the top of world football and he, like Mats Hummels and Mario Gotze, chose to move to his side's biggest rivals. He feels Carlo/players didn't support him enough (including race for best goal scorer).

The striker only signed a new deal with Bayern at the end of a year ago, tying him to the German club until 2021. I do believe they would say the latter. "I was annoyed and disappointed with the team's attitude", the striker said.

Real Madrid have also been linked with the Polish striker but with Bayern's statement, any of such dreams has been killed.

The Blues are on the hunt for a world-class striker to replace outbound Diego Costa.

According to The Mirror, Chelsea have made a serious enquiry about Lewandowski, who is unsettled at Bayern due to a row with his manager and teammates.

What difference would he make at Manchester United?

Robert Lewandowski may have blossomed into a world class striker at Dortmund.

Taking to Twitter, Balague said that Chelsea and United have spoken to Lewandowski's representatives over a potential move, with the Stamford Bridge club front-runners to secure the 28-year-old.

'If other clubs negotiate with long time contract players they risk a Federation Internationale de Football Association penalty'.

The Polish striker was reportedly upset with his Bayern Munich team mates for failing to finish as the top goal scorer in the Bundesliga last season. Famously, Lewandowski was close to joining then-Premier League Blackburn from Lech Poznan in his homeland in 2010.
