In recent weeks, Robert Lewandowski has emerged as the main attacking target for FC Barcelona, who are unlikely to shell out millions to sign either Mohamed Salah or Erling Haaland.

While the Bayern Munich forward could cost a fortune as well, he has emerged as the desired option due to his age profile and a contract that expires at the end of next season.

Barcelona and PSG are, in fact, two of the most likely destination for the Pole, if he ends up leaving Bayern Munich this summer, as per SPORT. There have been reports of Lewandowski’s desire to play for Barça as well, with the Catalans reportedly closing in on his capture.

However, ESPN journalist Moises Llorens has refuted such claims, delivering a rather ominous update on Barcelona’s pursuit of the star striker.

It appears Barcelona don’t want to get into trouble with FC Bayern by trying to coax Lewandowski into a move to Camp Nou, despite the club’s evident interest in the player.

Barcelona may also have to make significant alterations to their frugal wage structure if they are to pursue the Polish international, who is likely to hold out for a lucrative contract, one on par with Mohamed Salah or even Erling Haaland.

Hence, there is a possibility that Barça may not sign a new striker at all. The Catalans appear to be rather happy with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has enjoyed early success following his move to Camp Nou, scoring nine goals in all competitions.

The club are also banking on the services of young phenom Ansu Fati. The explosive winger had recently returned to training after yet another injury layoff and is reportedly looking “stronger than ever”.

Fati is yet to feature since his return from injury, but we can soon expect him back in action as Barça gear up for a difficult final phase of the campaign.
