Too old for €80m: Chelsea rejected chance to sign Robert Lewandowski

Bayern Munich were reportedly open to selling Roberto Lewandowski to Chelsea who are very interested in his service.

His agent Pini Zahavi was about to start negotiation only to be told the 32-year-old will not be leaving Bayern unless his €80m asking price is met.

Startled with his asking price, Chelsea decided against signing him due to his age and moved for a much younger, fitter and stronger striker in Romelu Lukaku.

According to Bild, Chelsea were willing to offer as high as €50m for his service and not the €80m Bayern Munich requested for his service cause no one is certain how good the striker will be going in the next 2 or 3 years.
