- Robert Lewandowski is set to leave Bayern Munich this summer after refusing to sign a new contract.
- The striker could even be sold before his current contract expires.
TheFootballLovers brings you more Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona news as the contract saga continues.
Bayern Munich’s talisman Robert Lewandowski has allegedly told the club that he will not be extending his contract and is keen on joining Barcelona this summer.
After an astonishing eight-year career with the Bundesliga giants, where he scored 343 goals in 374 games, the prolific Polish striker has been linked with a transfer elsewhere.
Lewandowski’s contract will expire next summer, and there have been rumors that he might prefer to have a change. In recent months, Lewandowski has been extensively linked with a move to Barcelona, albeit no deal has yet been reached.
Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona news keep getting hotter and hotter with each passing day. According to Sky Germany, Lewandowski prefers to join Barcelona this summer rather than wait until the conclusion of the 2022-23 season to become a free agent.
The Polish striker is alleged to have informed Bayern Munich that he would not be renewing his present contract and that he is searching for a new challenge.
Last summer, Barcelona was unable to give its renowned player Lionel Messi a new deal, resulting in his transfer to Paris Saint-Germain. Since then, the Cataluna club has been desperate to sign a world-class striker.
During the January transfer window, Xavi, who was hired as manager in November, made Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang one of his first signings.
Despite Aubameyang’s success at Barcelona, the Catalan giants remained way behind their main opponents Real Madrid, who have won LaLiga and are 12 points ahead of Xavi’s team thanks to Karim Benzema’s stellar individual season.
This season, Lewandowski has been in superb form for Bayern Munich, scoring 49 goals in 45 games. Lewandowski has won eight Bundesliga championships and the Champions League in the 2019-20 season since joining Bayern Munich from German rivals Borussia Dortmund in 2014.
Bayern Munich’s pursuit of Erling Haaland was recently alleged to have ‘offended’ Lewandowski – before Haaland signed for Manchester City.
It seems as though Robert Lewandowski will be a class signing for Barcelona if the deal goes through. The player himself is interested in joining the Catalan giants so it’s more than likely that we may see the Polish striker at Camp Nou this summer.
