Tuchel drops massive transfer hint – Chelsea to make superstar an offer?


Chelsea will rival Barcelona for the signature of Robert Lewandowski – after Thomas Tuchel dropped a massive transfer hint

The Pole goal-scoring machine has a year to run on his deal at Bayern Munich but he appeared to say goodbye to supporters at the Allianz Arena last week after he failed to agree that new deal that he wanted.

The former Dortmund ace is reportedly keen on joining Barcelona – but it remains to be seen whether the Catalans can afford the Pole’s salary of £600,000-a-week – particularly given their financial troubles.

That has led to suggestions that Chelsea are ready to swoop in for the man and make him an offer to come to the Premier League – as Tuchel knows he needs to close that gap on man City and Liverpool with big-time signings

And The Guardian claim the incoming board are now considering challenging for his signature.

Tuchel feels that the side’s lack of goals has cost them dearly this season and has hinted that adding a new striker to the attack his on his mind: ‘If we stick to the group then we will try to solve it with these players,’ said Tuchel

‘Is it necessary to bring more offensive players around the box to create more distractions, to create more space for each other? We will ask that question. Can we do better in the structure? Can we push the players more? Did we rotate too much? Let’s see.

‘There are a lot of options. The numbers we produce from our offensive players don’t allow us to overperform and we need overperformance if we want to be nearer to the top two teams.

‘I am not pointing fingers, I am not blaming anybody, but we need overperformance from everybody. It’s not overperformance if we have only single figures in scoring and assisting.’
