Barcelona are considering a ‘real’ move for €50 million-rated striker – report
Robert Lewandowski is going increasingly frustrated with Bayern Munich’s lack of desire to hand him a new deal, resulting in the Poland international becoming a ‘real option’ for Barcelona to consider in the summer.
The 33-year-old veteran forward still has a contract until 2023, but Bayern haven’t really made any effort in tying him for a longer tenure. The lack of momentum means Lewandowski is now having reservations over the club’s intentions and believes it is something to do with Erling Haaland.
The record Bundesliga champions aren’t too enthusiastic about the Poland international, and in case there’s, in fact, an offer, it won’t exceed beyond €23m to €25m per season.
On top of that, Bayern do not really have a great working relationship with Lewandowski’s agent Pini Zahavi, and this could lead to a potential departure in the summer.
Now, this is when Barcelona come into the picture. Lewandowski’s troubled contractual situation means he has suddenly become one of the most in-demand players for the upcoming transfer market.
Manchester City, Manchester United, and Real Madrid have all been credited with an interest, and now journalist Toni Juanmarti claims Barcelona are considering him as a ‘real option’ too.
Interestingly enough, Lewandowski seems to be following the same path as Niklas Sule. The towering centre-half, who will play for Borussia Dortmund from the next only left Bayern due to lack of appreciation.
But while the Bavarians have the resources to replace the departing defender, there’s no like-to-like successor for Lewandowski.
Or maybe there’s could be some substance about the fact that Erling Haaland is being considered by the German team. In any way, Lewandowski is looking more likely to leave than he is to stay, and Barcelona could ideally be one of the plausible destinations.
