Bayer Munich Striker Wanted By Barcelona
Striker Priority for Next Season
Barcelona will prioritise a summer transfer for Bayern Munich striker, Robert Lewandowski. The Spanish club are willing to give the Poland international whatever he wants to secure his signature. According to Fabrizio Romano, Lewandowski is a priority for the Spanish side. The La Liga outfit are trying to tempt the Pole to make the move from Germany.
The 33-year-old currently is one of world football’s most prolific strikers. Having played 44 games for the Bundesliga side, scoring 49 goals and adding two assists, it is easy to see why Barcelona are so determined for Lewandowski to make the move.
Barcelona are looking to pay the striker what he wants, either in a three-year deal or a two plus one year deal. Reports suggest that Lewandowski is tempted by the move, however, the striker is still holding talks with his current club.
Stay or Go
The striker’s contract with Bayern Munich is set to expire at the end of the season. The 33-year-old is rumoured to be unhappy and looking to exit, with Barcelona the favourites to sign Lewandowski instead. Barca are waiting to see if the Pole leaves or stays.
After eight seasons with Bayern, is a move on the cards for the striker? Time will tell, but with contract negotiations still ongoing, the uncertainty hangs in the air. With Barcelona willing to pay whatever Lewandowski asks for, if a move is to come it will be to Spain.
Other reports suggest that Xavi, and by extension, Barcelona have yet to make an official approach. However, if the talks with Bayern come to nothing, then Barcelona will be the next port of call for Lewandowski. Based on the average age footballers retire, the Pole will have at least two super seasons at Barca. Although, with them looking to offer a three-year deal they believe he will go beyond that.
