Chelsea are chasing Robert Lewandowski after the striker announced he wants to leave Bayern Munich .
Poland international Lewandowski is under contract with the German giants until 2021, but he has recently hired Pini Zahavi – the agent who brokered Neymar’s world-record transfer from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain last summer – to get him a move.
The Stamford Bridge club are looking to start their summer spending even before a deal is struck to bring in Maurizio Sarri as their new manager.
Bayern will look for more than £80m for the 29-year-old who has been top scorer in the Bundesliga in two of the last three seasons, with Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain also interested.
Super-agent Zahavi said: “Robert believes he needs a change and a new challenge in his career, Bayern officials know it.

“Everybody in the Bayern leadership has had a great career. They must understand his situation.”
