Robert Lewandowski is one of the candidates for the Barcelona striker, who wants to take advantage of the fact that he finishes his contract with Bayern in 2023 to get him at a cheaper price. After ‘Mundo Deportivo’ claimed that the ‘Cules’ have not yet negotiated with him, Gianluca di Marzio details what the Germans’ demands would be.
The journalist specialising in the transfer window warns that the Germans will ask the Catalans for between 70 and 80 million euros. This is a figure that is a far cry from what the Spaniards had in mind to employ. The board, led by Joan Laporta, were hoping to talk with 30 million euros as a starting point.
Barcelona president and those close to him have already confirmed on several occasions that they do not intend to lose their heads for any player. If the Germans do not reduce their demands, there will be no progress in getting the Pole under the orders of Xavi Hernandez next season.
Moreover, Bayern’s request fits with Oliver Kahn’s words after the Champions League match against Villarreal. The team’s CEO ruled out an exit for Lewandowski this summer and took it as read that he will remain in his squad until at least June next year.
Fabrizio Romano also reports on the situation
Fabrizio Romano, another journalist specialising in such matters in the world of football, has also provided an update on the deal. Via his Twitter profile, he indicates that, if Bayern do not offer him three more years on his contract, he will not agree to stay and will look for a way out this summer.
