Barcelona optimistic of signing Robert Lewandowski

La Liga heavyweights Barcelona are reportedly hopeful of securing the services of 33-year-old Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski.

According to a report by Spanish publication SPORT, Barcelona will continue to prioritise the arrival of Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich in the summer transfer window. The 33-year-old prolific Polish striker’s agent, Pini Zahavi, is also pushing for a transfer, with the Blaugrana optimistic about the deal being struck.

Robert Lewandowski has been in a league of his own for much of his stint with Bayern Munich. The Pole is currently in his eighth season with the Bundesliga champions and has been scoring goals for fun, amassing 49 goals and seven assists in 45 appearances this term.

But the 33-year-old’s contract situation has put Bayern Munich in a spot of bother, with his deal set to run out next year. While Bayern Munich president Herbert Hainer has suggested that contract talks between the two parties are underway, Lewandowski is ready to embark on a new challenge. Such a situation has captured the attention of Barcelona.

The interest from Barcelona stems from the evolving situation of the first-team setup at Camp Nou. The Blaugrana will see Martin Braithwaite leave in the summer transfer window, with the Danish international keen on seeking regular game-time at another club. In addition, Barcelona will not sign Luuk de Jong permanently once he returns to Sevilla at the expiration of the loan deal.

Lewandowski is thus a viable target for Barcelona, with the Polish striker ready to leave Bayern Munich. But the Bavarian giants are putting up a strong resistance to keep hold of Lewandowski, with different board members publicly insisting that he will still be at the Allianz Arena when the summer transfer window shuts down.

However, the Catalan giants are optimistic about prising the 33-year-old prolific striker away from Bayern Munich. Lewandowski’s agent Pini Zahavi is also likely to push for a departure from the Allianz Arena in the summer transfer window, leaving the Bundesliga champions in a spot of bother.

For now, the transfer saga hangs in the balance, with neither Bayern Munich nor Barcelona having particularly promising signs of enjoying the services of Lewandowski in the 2022/23 season. But with the player ready to leave the Bundesliga club to join Barcelona, a summer deal could be on the cards.
