One of the issues that drives this summer transfer window is the complicated situation of the Pole, stuck at Bayern. While the Munich club does not intend to let go of its star striker, the situation would have progressed slightly.
A few weeks ago, Robert Lewandowski expressed his desire to look elsewhere. If Barça was positioned in pole position, Chelsea and PSG also showed interest in the serial scorer. After the announcement of the Polish international, Munich leaders were clear: ” We have clearly explained our position on the situation of his contract.”
However, Bayern have still set a price for their striker, a signal that could leave room for some negotiations. According to the newspaper Sport, the minimum amount to afford the services of the Pole was 40 million. Only Bild has just announced the new minimum amount desired by Bayern, it is 50 million.
Because at the time of writing, Bayern have just turned down Barça’s third offer for Lewandowski. A third refusal from Bayern which, according to Bild, said no to the 40 million euros + 5 million bonus offered by FC Barcelona. The Catalans are going to have to revise their next offer upwards.
Negotiations in Ibiza?
In the meantime, many footballers are heading to the party island for their holidays. In particular Robert Lewandowski who would have been seen with the coach of FC Barcelona, Xavi. According to journalist Gerard Romero, the two footballers ate in the same restaurant, but not at the same table.
Did they talk during the evening? It’s impossible to say. This fortuitous meeting nevertheless caused a lot of ink to flow in the sports newspapers. Robert Lewandowski being the priority of technician Xavi’s transfer window, all doubts are allowed.
