Why Lewandowski would suit Chelsea over Manchester United
Chelsea opinion: Robert Lewandowski would be a perfect fit at Stamford Bridge
Borussia Dortmund are readily willing to strike a deal with Chelsea for striker Robert Lewandowski - and the Blues should listen.
It's clear that Borussia Dortmund would prefer to see the big man at Chelsea instead of Manchester United. Lewandowski has publicly stated that he will not be renewing his contract with the club, and will leave either in the summer of 2013 or after the 2013/14 season on a free transfer. If a deal can be struck up as soon as possible, Chelsea would have the services of another world class attacker at their disposal.
It's a safe conclusion the Dortmund would prefer to see Robert playing his football outside the Bundesliga and especially not in the Bayern Munich squad.
Lewandowski has been in excellent form this season scoring 35 goals in all competitions, and has taken the Champions League by storm, with a number of crucial goals, especially the four he scored against Real Madrid an their first leg tie. He would be a quality addition to any side in Europe and with his current deal about to expire, Dortmund feel it is time to cash in.
Fuelling the fire to the speculation that the Polish superstar will be kitting out in Stamford Bridge next season, Jose Mourinho has recently admitted the he is a keen admirer of the front-man. With Mourinho widely regarded to be back at the helm of Chelsea, it's quite possible that Lewandowski could follow.
Mourinho likes to play with too wide men attacking on both flanks. With Lewandowski been assisted out wide be the likes of Hazard, Oscar and Mata, its easy to see how he could thrive in Chelsea's ranks.
Dortmund's interest in Kevin De Bruyne, is fortunately for Chelsea, a key advantage that could see Lewandowski line up for the Blue's this season. De Bruyne could be used in a player plus cash deal that would suit both sides involved.
Manchester United have top class forwards already at the club with the likes of Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck and Chicharito all regularly featuring for the Red Devils. Rotation would be a common routine present in the United frontline and if he joined Chelsea he would easily cement a place in the starting line-up.
Time can only tell if Lewandowski will be wearing Blue next season and hopefully, he will.
