FC Barcelona is apparently serious about poker for Robert Lewandowski (33)!
The Bayern star is the Spaniards’ declared dream player. Lewandowski, who is currently vacationing in Turkey with his family, wants to leave Bayern. Now movement could come in a possible change!
BamS learned: FC Barcelona is said to have submitted a first written offer for Lewandowski. According to reports, this should be a transfer fee of 32 million euros.
Is that enough for the striker, who was the top scorer in the Bundesliga five times in a row? According to BamS information, FC Bayern’s expectations are around 40 million euros. Lewandowski still has a contract in Munich until 2023, his current market value at transfermarkt.de is 50 million euros.
For Barça coach Xavi (42), Lewandowski is supposed to be the king transfer, the financially troubled Spaniards are trying everything to free up funds. Xavi: “Yes, Lewandowski is one of the options for us. He says he wants to move, there are negotiations. But he still has a contract in Munich, so it won’t be easy.”
Barcelona are said to offer Lewandowski a three-year deal. From Barça it can be heard that the bigger hurdle in the Lewandowski project is the negotiations with Bayern. The bosses are convinced that an agreement will be reached with Lewandowski.
Bayern recently spoke a word of power in the Lewandowski case. “Robert Lewandowski has a contract until 2023, and he will fulfill it,” says CEO Oliver Kahn (52) in the current “WELT am SONNTAG”.
But does this statement stand with every offer? Or is it part of the negotiation strategy?
Bayern would have to keep Lewandowski against his will. The striker had informed sports director Hasan Salihamidzic (45) before the end of the season that he would not extend his contract. After the 2-2 draw against Wolfsburg on the last day of the game, Lewandowski said: “It’s quite possible that it was my last game for Bayern. I can’t say for sure, but it could be.”
FC Bayern could not be reached on Saturday for a statement on the first written offer on BamS request.
