Chief OFFICIALLY gives Chelsea chance to sign £600,000-a-week star


Barcelona can likely not afford a move for Chelsea target Robert Lewandowski, according to the president of La Liga, Javier Tebas

After another stunning season in which he broke the 40-goal mark and helped Bayern to another League title – Lewandowski shocked the world when he confirmed that he would not be signing a new contract with the Germans

It is believed that Bayern do not want to pay him the kind of wages that he desires – around the £600,000-a-week mark – and have given up hope of keeping hold – so have decided that they will allow him to leave for a fee this summer – rather than nothing next summer

That has led to alot of speculation that Chelsea have been linked with a move – although the Spaniards are reportedly leading the chase for the striker

However – Tebas does not see how the Blaugrana can bring him to Camp Nou amid their own well-documented financial difficulties – “As of today, no,” the chief was quoted as saying by Marca.

“Other things have to happen that I don’t know if they are going to happen. The numbers are very easy.

“You have more than €500 million (£423m/$528m) from the previous two years, you have to recover them to be able to sign without the one-third rule.”

“Lewandowski has one year left at Bayern. Between what Lewandowski wants to earn and what Bayern wants to take, it gives me the feeling, as of today I don’t see him at Barcelona.”
