Speaking on Sky Deutschland, the Bayern Munich leader made it very clear. “ I discussed with “Lewa”. would like to do something else. But our position has not changed and I reminded that he has a contract until June 30, 2023. This is the reality. Have Barça made contact? No! “Said Hasan Salihamidzic, just to make it clear that the German club was not going to let its sporting choices dictate. However, at the same time, the Catalan media claim that Robert Lewandowski has already reached an agreement with the leaders of FC Barcelona, who would therefore be ready to pay transfer compensation to Bayern for a player whose value is still estimated at 50 million euros. euros.
Barca tremble, Pini Zahavi is involved in the transfer
In this case, there is still an X factor which suggests that Barça could have French competition. Indeed, Robert Lewandowski’s agent is none other than Pini Zahavi, the same man who had made misery for FC Barcelona by obtaining Neymar’s agreement for a transfer to Paris Saint-Germain. And given the possible departure of Kylian Mbappé, the arrival of the Polish striker would be a big blow on the transfer market. The possibility of seeing Leonardo and Nasser Al-Khelaifi enter the dance has even been mentioned several times by Fabrizio Romano and various transfer window specialists. The duel between Barça and PSG could therefore be intense, even if Paris still has to wait for Kylian Mbappé’s decision to advance its pawns.
