- Barcelona’s pursuit of Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski appears to be gaining up speed.
- Barcelona’s director held a meeting with Lewandowski’s agent and has offered him an intriguing contract.
- Lewandowski’s agent is in Munich today to address the star forward’s contract predicament.
Another twist in Robert Lewandowski transfer news. Barcelona are pushing hard to strike a deal with Robert Lewandowski’s agent in order to bring him to Camp Nou.
The 33-year-old is in the final year of his contract with Bayern Munich and wants to leave this summer. With the Catalan giants eager to sign him, Barça has emerged as the striker’s most likely destination.
Joan Laporta, the club’s president, is said to be desperate to sign Lewandowski. Even though Bayern Munich and the prolific striker are expected to hold contract discussions, Barcelona is keeping a close eye on the situation and is ready to strike.
It is also reported that the Polish international is highly interested in joining Barcelona to seek a new challenge.
The Blaugrana had previously been reported to have held conversations with Lewandowski’s agent, Pini Zahavi.
However, writer and transfer analyst Gerard Romero claims that Barcelona director Mateu Alemany met with Zahavi again on Wednesday night at a restaurant in Barcelona.
Romero also said that the two parties talked about the financial implications of bringing Lewandowski to Camp Nou at the conclusion of the season.
According to the transfer specialist, Barcelona has informed Zahavi that they are prepared to pay roughly €30-35 million to sign Lewandowski from Bayern Munich.
Furthermore, Barcelona are ready to offer a two-year contract to Robert Lewandowski with an option of extension. That essentially means Barcelona are ready to accept Lewandowski’s demands in the contract.
Barcelona are also allegedly urging Zahavi and Lewandowski to exert pressure on Bayern Munich to allow him to leave during the summer transfer window.
The 33-year-old Polish striker has had another productive season, demonstrating that despite his advanced years, he still has enough to contribute at the greatest level.
Robert Lewandowski has the potential to be a valuable acquisition for Barcelona, but it remains to be seen whether Barcelona’s efforts to sign him will bear fruit.
Pini Zahavi’s Meeting With Bayern Munich’s Officials
A meeting was held between Bayern Munich’s officials and Lewandowski’s agent in order to discuss the future of the Polish striker.
Pini Zahavi, Lewandowski’s agent, is in Munich today to address the star forward’s contract predicament.
According to RMC Sport, Lewandowski wants to leave the club, and Zahavi is expected to request a move.
Lewandowski’s illustrious eight-year stay at Bayern Munich appears to be coming to an end, with a move to La Liga on the cards.
The Polish international hinted last month to Sky Sports Germany that he might be open to leaving Bayern at the end of the season.
“I am open to everything,” the Pole said.
“I’m quiet. It is important for me to be able to focus on my game, always on what can happen in the last match.
“Everything that remains to be done regarding contracts is a secondary issue and remains in the background.”
The German champions, on the other hand, made it crystal clear in a discussion that lasted more than two hours that they will not be selling the striker at any price.
More discussions between the two sides are planned to discuss the experienced striker’s new deal. Bayern Munich will try to keep Robert Lewandowski until 2023 when his current contract expires.
This is a huge setback for Barça, who met with Pini Zahavi on Wednesday to discuss a possible transfer. Bayern Munich’s attitude has caused a significant issue for the Blaugrana.
According to the reports, no final decisions have been made yet, and Bayern executives and Zahavi will meet again.
However, it remains to be seen whether the Bavarians are prepared to change their minds.
