Joan Laporta confirms Barcelona’s offer for Robert Lewandowski

Barcelona president Joan Laporta has confirmed that they have made an offer to sign Bayern Munich superstar Robert Lewandowski.

Speaking to the media (h/t GOAL), Barcelona president Joan Laporta has confirmed that the Catalan giants have lodged an offer to secure the signing of Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski this summer.

It is no secret that Barcelona are pursuing the signing of Lewandowski in the ongoing transfer window. The 33-year-old, who has entered the final year of his contract with Bayern Munich, has also made it clear that he wishes to leave the Allianz Arena and move to Camp Nou.

However, Bayern Munich have been a major stumbling block in the deal as they are unwilling to sanction the sale of Lewandowski. To that end, the German Bundesliga champions are believed to have knocked back three offers from Barcelona for the Poland captain, with the latest bid believed to be around €40 million in fixed payments and €5 million in add-ons.

There have been reports claiming that the Blaugrana would return with an improved offer. Now president Joan Laporta has confirmed that Barcelona have submitted a bid to sign Lewandowski and are waiting for a response from Bayern Munich as they look to close the deal. The Barça supremo also thanked the striker for his efforts to push a move through.

“Barça is going to be 125 years old and there are few clubs that have a history like ours. We respect Bayern. You know that we have made an offer for him and we are waiting for an answer. Let’s see if it is positive. We appreciate the player’s effort,” Laporta said to the media.

Widely regarded as one of the greatest strikers in the game currently, Lewandowski enjoyed another prolific campaign in 2021/22, finishing with 50 goals across all competitions.

However, having won everything possible with Bayern Munich, the 33-year-old striker is intent on testing himself in a new club and has his heart set on a transfer to Barcelona. Personal terms are believed to have been agreed between the two parties as well, but with Bayern Munich continuing to play hardball, the Blaugrana may have to wait for a while longer before the deal is finalised.
