La Liga heavyweights Barcelona have reportedly held discussions with 33-year-old Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski over a possible summer move.
According to reputed Spanish journalist Gerard Romero, Mateu Alemany met with Pini Zahavi earlier this week to discuss a move for Robert Lewandowski. Barcelona’s director of football offered the 33-year-old Bayern Munich marksman a two-year deal while suggesting the Blaugrana can pay between €30 million and €35 million to land the Pole.
Robert Lewandowski has established himself as one of the best strikers of his generation since moving to Germany nearly a decade ago. But since joining Bayern Munich from Borussia Dortmund around eight years ago, the Polish international has taken his game to the next level, playing in a league of his own in the Bundesliga.
The 33-year-old has enjoyed a solid 2021/22 campaign, amassing 48 goals and six assists in 43 appearances thus far. But Lewandowski’s contract situation has put Bayern Munich in a spot of bother, with his deal expiring on June 30, 2023. Such a development has captured the attention of Barcelona.
The interest from Barcelona stems from their inability to replace Lionel Messi’s goals following his shocking departure to Paris Saint-Germain last summer. While Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has been prolific since arriving from Arsenal earlier this year, no other player is prolific enough to give a sense of security to Xavi Hernandez in the Barcelona dugout.
Lewandowski is thus a viable target for Barcelona, although Bayern Munich will fight tooth and nail to keep hold of the prolific 33-year-old marksman, with talks over a renewal already underway. But Barcelona will not wave the white flag just yet after recently holding talks with Lewandowski’s agent Pini Zahavi.
According to Gerard Romero, Mateu Alemany and Pini Zahavi met earlier this week, having been in contact for quite some time. The Spanish journalist has added that Barcelona will offer Lewandowski a two-year deal with the option to extend it by a further year, which meets Lewandowski’s demand.

The Blaugrana will only be willing to pay between €30 million and €35 million to snap up the Pole, which could throw a spanner in the works. As things stand, things are in the balance in the Robert Lewandowski transfer saga, although Barcelona’s prospects of prising him away from the Bundesliga club seem bleak.
