Barcelona are reportedly willing to offer a fee of up to €60 million to secure the signing of Bayern Munich superstar Robert Lewandowski in the summer.
According to SPORT, Barcelona are ready to make a serious push for the signing of Bayern Munich and Poland striker Robert Lewandowski in the summer transfer window. The Catalan giants are prepared to shell out up to €60 million to bring the veteran forward to Camp Nou before next season.
Lewandowski is one of the best strikers in the modern era. The 33-year-old has shattered all sorts of goalscoring records in Germany during his time with Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich. However, the Poland captain could be on the move this summer as his contract with Die Roten expires in 2023.
Talks over a new deal have not gone according to plans, and Lewandowski is contemplating moving on in the summer and seeking another big move in his illustrious career, sparking interest from several big clubs across Europe. Barcelona have emerged as the most serious suitors for the Bayern Munich superstar heading into the summer.
Barcelona are looking to bring in a game-changing attacker in the summer to fill the vacancy created by Lionel Messi’s departure last year. Erling Haaland has been at the top of the list for the Blaugrana, but the Borussia Dortmund superstar looks set to join Manchester City, leaving Barcelona scouring for other options.
Lewandowski, to that end, has presented himself as an alternative due to his contract situation at Bayern Munich. It has been claimed that Barcelona are prepared to hand him a four-year contract to the 33-year-old goalscorer. At the same time, it is also believed that the Polish international is keen on making the switch to Camp Nou as he thinks it might boost his chances of winning the Ballon d’Or.
And, as per the report from SPORT, Barcelona will be ready to pay up €50 million to sign Lewandowski in the summer, although they would be prepared to push it up to as high as €60 million as they look to make the Bayern Munich superstar their marquee addition.
It is stated that the Catalans believe that his wages would not be an issue, and they are happy to pay a significant fee for Lewandowski as they think that his goals would be worth the investment. Whether Barcelona end up signing the Bundesliga striker come summer or are forced to look elsewhere remains to be seen.
