Unthinkable a few weeks ago, the departure of Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich seems to be getting closer as the end of the season approaches. Already German champion, the Bavarian giant refuses for the moment to settle on the salary demands of his striker, whose contract ends in a year. Result, the Pole puts pressure and approaches FC Barcelona.
Bayern do not want their 33-year-old striker to leave, but he may well be forced to. The next few hours promise to be decisive. According to the Mundo Deportivo, the contours of this transfer are beginning to take shape. While the Rekordmeister does not want to offer the player more than two years of contract with the same salary as currently (25 M € per year), Barça is willing to offer three years.
Lewandowski wants three years on contract
A significant factor at the age of the player. Lewandowski will then be almost 37 years old if he ever signs for the Catalans until June 2025. On the one hand, FC Barcelona could achieve a huge blow by offering themselves one of the best players in the world, capable of registering 30 goals in one season, but there is also a part of risk linked to the aging of the Pole which worries in high places.
Other information released in recent hours in Spain, Pini Zahavi would have met Mateu Alemany, the director of football in recent hours in Barcelona. The latter would have explained to him that Barça was able to offer between 30 and 35 M€ to Bayern for this transfer. It is probably still a little weak for the German club which would rather claim between 40 and 50 M €. Negotiations promise to intensify.
