Manchester United and Chelsea are two teams that will be desperate to make a point next season. The Red Devils will be eager to dominate their noisy neighbors and give Jose Mourinho the Premier League title he badly craves.
Chelsea, for their part, will be looking to wipe their slate clean off the utter joke of a title defense that was last campaign and go into the new one afresh with hope.
However, in order for both these sides to make a strong running at their respective goals, a flurry of talents must arrive first. Now, a common reinforcement may have been contacted and a saga could commence.
According to France Football (via The Sun), both the English clubs have contacted Pini Zahavi, the agent of Robert Lewandowski, and are looking to sign him for their attacking ploys next season.

While both the clubs had invested in strikers last season, with Morata and Lukaku being key arrivals to England, this deal has been on the talks for a while.
In the case of Chelsea, Morata may not have proven to be the striker they badly needed, and the Reds have found themselves overly reliant on the Belgian striker, who has also been a tad bit overwhelmed.
As a result, the world-class Pole is an apt signing to look into, and Chelsea appear to be the leading bidders as per the report.
However, the lack of solid confirmation comes through the uncertainty over their next manager, and this could certainly prove to be the chance that United needs to capitalize upon.
Suggestions have also been made that Mourinho could look to accommodate the 29-year-old by selling Anthony Martial and changing the formation up a bit. However, how this will work with their midfield talent remains to be seen.
Chelsea, on their part, seems intent on partnering Morata with an apt talent.
