Premier League fears show Robert Lewandowski is ‘afraid’ of a move to Chelsea.
Robert Lewandowski is trying to “avoid” a move to Chelsea because he believes he will struggle to replicate his success in the Premier League.
The 33-year-old is desperate to leave Bayern Munich this summer, pleading with the Bundesliga club to let him to depart rather than requiring him to finish his contract.
His favorite destination is Barcelona, though it is unclear whether they will be able to afford to relocate.
Other teams have taken notice, with Chelsea and PSG allegedly joining the race for Lewandowski. The Blues, in particular, could make a move for the Polish striker, with Romelu Lukaku appearing to be on his way out of Stamford Bridge.
However, Lewandowski’s unwillingness to play in England could stymie a move to Chelsea.
According to his previous agent, Cezary Kucharski, the player cited the English weather as an excuse to prevent a transfer to the Premier League in the past, but there was a more important cause.
“I’ve always heard Robert provide a stupid argument for why England rains so much,” Kucharski told Sport 1.
“However, I believe the actual reason was that he didn’t believe he could be as effective as he might in Germany.” “Robert was terrified of that.”
