While the most recent rumors of Lewandowski’s transfer to FC Barcelona originated mainly from Spain, Polish sports journalist Sebastian Staszewski of ‘Sport Internia’ is now reporting that the 33-year-old forward has reportedly agreed a move with Barca in summer. According to this, the Barcelona striker has a 3-year contract until 2025. Staszewski refers to sources close to the player.
According to Staszewski, Liverpool, Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain are also interested in Lewandowski. The three clubs would be in negotiation with his adviser Pini Zahavi. Barcelona have so far been the only club to submit a ‘binding offer’.
The Polish portal “TVP Sport” also confirms this information. As a result, Lewandowski has reached an agreement with the Catalans after a conference call with Barca president Joan Laporta. The striker has already informed Bayern of his decision and does not want to renew his contract in Munich.
How does Bayern react?
Lewandowski is contractually tied to FCB until 2023. Put simply, this means the striker cannot leave the club at the end of the season without a transfer release from Munich. Bayern bosses had repeatedly stressed recently that they wanted to keep the best player for the long term. So far, however, there have been no concrete discussions in this regard. However, according to rumours, the Munich team only want to offer the forward a new one-year contract until 2024.
According to information from ‘Sky’, Lewandowski should not be allowed to leave in the summer under any circumstances, even if there is no agreement on the extension. This risks losing the striker for free in 2023.
Lewandowski’s side are hoping for a release as the Munich side have often vetoed in the past and the Pole is now in the fall of his career.
