Robert Lewandowski will reportedly choose between Chelsea and Real Madrid at the end of the campaign after employing a super-agent to help speed up his exit form Bayern Munich.
The prolific forward, boasting 171 goals in 250 Bundesliga games since joining Bayern four seasons ago, is believed to be keen to move on in the summer.
The La Liga giants and Chelsea have both earlier been linked with the 29-year-old and, as reported by Bleacher Report, it will now likely be a straight shootout between the two.
The Poland International lately recruited Pini Zahavi – an agent with more than 30 years’ practice behind him to take care of any concrete offers.
The forward, with 51 goals from 71 appearances for his national club, is under contract at the Allianz Arena for an extra three campaigns and therefore rated at around £80m.
Meanwhile, Chelsea have reportedly recognized AC Milan star Alessio Romagnoli as a potential transfer target for the summer window.
Romagnoli has proved himself as one of the best players in Serie A, with the 23-year-old having spells at Roma and Sampdoria before shining at San Siro.
The Italian ace has performed a significant role in Milan’s last return to form however according to Leggo, Gennaro Gattuso faces a fight to keep the footballer at the club.
Chelsea have earlier held an interest in Romagnoli and it seems that Antonio Conte would like to bring his countryman to Stamford Bridge should he remain with the West Londoners.
Romagnoli who has scored five goals in 98 games for Milan still has over two years remaining on his contract.
