FC Barcelona’s pursuit of Robert Lewandowski has dominated the headlines in the footballing media this week, with multiple Spanish news outlets speculating a potential agreement between the player and the club.

Amid intense speculation, Mateu Alemany has broken his silence on the saga. The Barcelona sporting director has confirmed the club’s interest in the player but suggests there has been no agreement with Lewandowski just yet.

“We don’t have any agreement with Robert Lewandowski We deeply respect him – he is a very important player for his club. We are in the field of speculation, which is logical. But there’s nothing agreed”, Alemany told Movistar+ (h/t Fabrizio Romano)

Alemany’s comments appear to confirm reports of Barcelona’s calculated and pacifist approach in the Lewandowski pursuit.

The Catalans have no intention to risk their relationship with Bayern Munich by trying to force through a move for the Polish international.

Meanwhile, Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann has offered his optimism toward Lewandowski’s prolonged stay in Bavaria.

“I never got the impression that he wants to leave. In our conversations, he always seems to me as if he would like to stay. I would of course like to have him in my team and hopefully the near future will tell”, he said (h/t Fabrizio Romano) in a recent presser.

Nagelsmann’s comments come just a few days after Bayern Munich’s shocking elimination from the UEFA Champions League at the hands of Villarreal.

Many speculate Lewandowski has a scarred relationship with the young tactician due to his coaching methods, but whether or not it will have an impact on his decision to stay at Allianz Arena this summer remains to be seen.

It is certain Barcelona have no intention to give up their pursuit anytime soon, although they may have to come up with a financial solution if they are to afford the Pole’s hefty wage demands.
