Chelsea to battle Barcelona for Lewandowski
Chelsea are keeping an eye on Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski's situation and may face competition from Barcelona for his services this season.
Lewandowski has officially said that he will not be renewing his contract with the Bundesliga club.
The 33-year-old has one year left on his present contract and is looking for a new challenge.
Barca wants to sign a contract, but they'll have to avoid LaLiga's Financial Fair Play (FFP) consequences.

Currently, Chelsea is sanctioned and unable to make transfers — but that’s projected to end soon, with the Todd Boehly takeover of the final administrative details.
After that, they will begin planning their summer, as they are already behind most of Europe’s big clubs, who have started to make moves for new players.
