“I don’t think we have a chance” - Thomas Tuchel makes honest admission about signing player linked with Chelsea


Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has admitted that the Blues have no chance of signing Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski this summer. The Poland international has less than a year left on his current contract with Bayern Munich.

Lewandowski is one of the best strikers in the history of the game. He has won it all with the Bavarians over the last eight years, scoring a bucketload of goals in the process.

The Pole has featured in 375 games across competitions for Bayern, scoring 344 goals and helping them to eight consecutive Bundesliga titles and a Champions League trophy, amongst other honors.

The 33-year-old has expressed his desire to leave the club this summer. Barcelona are the frontrunners to secure his services, but the Blaugrana are yet to match Bayern’s valuation of the player.

Chelsea, who loaned out Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan earlier in the month, could use a player of Lewandowski’s caliber. Tuchel, however, does not think the Blues have any chance of landing the striker this summer, not that he is too concerned about it.

Sharing his thoughts on the Lewandowski deal, the German said (via Fabrizio Romano ):

“I don’t think we have a chance to sign Lewa but if there is, he is one of the best number nines. I think, right now, there is not the first priority to get another big striker in.”
