Manchester City switch to Chelsea’s potential alternative if Erling Haaland’s move fails

Man City’s hunt for a new elite striker appears to have switched to Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski.

The Premier League champions lost legendary frontman Sergio Aguero this summer to Barcelona leaving them desperate for reinforcements.

Pep Guardiola’s No1 target is Tottenham’s wantaway England skipper Harry Kane.

But a £100m transfer offer for the 27-year-old was rejected by Spurs prior to Euro 2020 with the North London club determined to keep their talisman.

That has led City to seek out alternative options and the Daily Mail claims they are monitoring Lewandowski’s contract situation.

Chelsea are reportedly looking at Lewandowski as potential alternative if their effort to acquire the services of Erling Haaland fails at the end of the day.

The Polish hitman has two years remaining on his £300,000-plus a week deal at Munich but has still not signed a new one.
