The Daily Express claims that Borussia Dortmund have started a Premier League bidding war by offering striker Robert Lewandowski for just £7 million.
Lewandowski, 25, is out of contract next summer—and has long been linked with a free transfer switch to Dortmund's archrivals Bayern Munich. However, the Express claims that Dortmund are so keen to avoid that outcome they are offering the Poland international to Premier League suitors for a cut-price fee in January.
Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea are all believed to be interested.
Reporter Jack Wilson writes:
Borussia Dortmund want to sell Lewandowski in January to prevent him joining Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich on a free when he is out of contract at the end of the season.
Lewandowski has made no secret of his desire to move to the Premier League and denied rumours that he has already signed a pre-contract with Bayern.
There will be no shortage of interested suitors in the Premier League, especially at £7m.
The Polish ace is just 25 and has the best years of his career ahead of him.
It remains to be seen if a deal can be done, especially considering that Lewandowski will be ineligible for the Champions League this season.
The forward has also seemed to prefer a switch to Munich over England in any comments about his future, contrary to Wilson's statement.
