According to the Spanish news outlet Sport, Robert Lewandowski has made it clear to FC Barcelona that he wants a move to the Camp Nou. Barcelona will assess the situation and make an official bid for the Polish striker.
Lewandowski has been one of the best strikers in the world for the past few years. For Bayern, the 33 year old striker has bagged an impressive 339 goals in 366 games. However, his contract with the German club will end in the summer of 2023.
Bayern Munich have offered a one year extension to the striker’s contract, but the Polish international is not happy with the terms of the deal. This has caused a downfall in his relationship with the club’s officials. Therefore, Robert Lewandowski wants to move elsewhere and has his eyes set on the Spanish League.
On the other, it is understood that Barcelona want to sign a world class forward. The club have several options, including Mohamed Salah, Erling Haaland or Robert Lewandowski. However, it looks like the board do not want to start pursuing Erling Haaland as the deal is way too expensive. Their arch rivals Real Madrid and Manchester City are also looking to sign the Norwegian star.
Barcelona are already preparing an official contract offer for Lewandowski. As they monitor the transfer market closely, a final decision will be made. The Polish star has asked for a three or four year contract with the Catalans.
According to Sport, Bayern Munich could ask for as much as $65 Million for Lewandowski. However, Barcelona will be looking to negotiate to a lower price for the 33 year old striker.
