Reports arrive from Sport Italia via a Twitter post that Bayern goal-machine Robert Lewandowski has an agreement of principles to join Barcelona. The Catalan club is willing to offer €60m for Lewandowski who has a contract with Bayern till 2023. The club is planning to offer the striker a 4-year deal.
The Catalan Club suffered terribly after the departure of Lionel Messi this season. After the appointment of Xavi Hernandez, the club legend as the manager, the team is going through a rebuilding phase. A few good signings namely Ferran Torres, Aubameyang, and the return of La Masia product Adama Traore have clicked positively for the Spanish club.
The Catalans are already feeling the Xavi effect, having a 12-match unbeaten run in all competitions, scoring 4 goals each in 6 different games, including a 4-0 victory against Real Madrid. Again, Barcelona has been trying to sign a star forward since the summer window. It will restore their attacking strength as Dembele may leave the club in the transfer window.
Barcelona was trying to bring in Norwegian goal-machine Erling Haaland for so long. Seemingly, it didn’t work out for the club. It appears that Xavi’s side is planning to bring in more experienced striker Robert Lewandowski.
This Polish striker has a contract with Bayern till 2023. Reports arrive that the contract renewal talk is in no progress as the striker wants to leave. Seemingly because Bayern Munchen is interested to sign Erling Haaland from Dortmund to have a long-term solution in the attack.
Robert Lewandowski has an incredible goal-scoring appetite, scoring 40, 55, and 48 goals in the last three seasons. He was a top contender for the Ballon D’Or, losing only to Messi. If Lewandowski joins Barcelona, it will significantly increase their attacking strengths. This striker’s arrival may confirm Dembele or Depay’s departure.
