Chelsea and Manchester United have "no chance" of signing Bayern Munich target Robert Lewandowski, according to talkSPORT's German football expert Raf Honigstein.

The 25-year-old striker is one of the most in-demand strikers in European football, though recent reports suggest his future is all but sewn up.

Lewandowski stated on Wednesday that he had agreed a deal to join Bayern Munich in the summer, before backtracking on Thursday.

The Chelsea and Manchester United striker target has since stated that he only confirmed he would be leaving current employers Borussia Dortmund on a free transfer.

Yet talkSPORT's Hongistein claims it's common knowledge in Germany the former Lech Poznan forward will be with Pep Guardiola's side next season.

"Everybody has known for a long time that Robert Lewandowski is going to Bayern Munich," he told Hawksbee and Jacobs.

"This latest incident has changed nothing."

Manchester City have previously been credited with an interest, while Chelsea have long been linked with a move for Lewandowski, though Jose Mourinho appears to have failed in his pursuit of the Poland international.

Manchester United are in the market for a new striker, though now Wayne Rooney's long-term future seems to have been secured, David Moyes' interest in the prolific frontman may well have cooled.
