According to the reports, Lewandowski’s agent, Pini Zahavi, told Barcelona that the Pole would consider moving to the Blaugrana for a lower salary than his current demands for Bayern.
Robert Lewandowski is one of the targets that Barcelona have on their wish list this summer, but Bayern Munich are not going to make it easy.
The Bavarian club intend to renew the 33-year-old’s contract in the hope that he commits his future to the Bundesliga champions.
“Lewandowski leaving this summer is not an option,” Bayern’s sporting director, Hasan Salihamidzic, said in an interview.
“He has a contract until 2023. We will have some talks soon and we will see how they develop and how to act afterwards. We want him to stay.”
“We have the best player in the world and we want him to stay here,” Salihamidzic added.
“We are proud of him, and we are very fond of him.
“We haven’t negotiated with him yet, but we will.”
FC Barcelona are interested in signing Robert Lewandowski as they look to strengthen their team for the next season. However, with the Catalan giants working under a strict financial limit, they are finding it challenging to meet Bayern Munich’s and the Polish star’s demands, who are willing to join the Spanish outfit.
According to a report from the media in Spain, Robert Lewandowski is accepting to lower his salary demands in order to sign with Barcelona in the summer. The Pole still has a year left on his contract with Bayern Munich but is looking to part ways with them. Given their financial limitations, Barcelona are working under strict guidelines by La Liga.
In order to make room for the Pole, they will need to sell some players to free up space and reduce their salary cap. However, with Lewandowski’s willingness to arrive on a lower salary does make their job easier.
Bayern Munich want the Polish international to continue at the club and see out his contract. However, they are ready to let the striker leave in the summer if he does not signal a new deal for a fee of around 40 million euros instead of losing him for free next summer.
Joan Laporta has a close relationship with the player’s agent, Pini Zahavi, who is working on completing this deal. It is understood that Barcelona are closing in on an operation with CVC that will make the club bring in an income of around 270 million, allowing them to negotiate with Bayern Munich for the striker.
