Barcelona have agreement with Lewandowski but Bayern Munich demand 50m euros
The chess game between Bayern Munich and Barcelonaover the transfer of Robert Lewandowski is continuing. The player, through his agent, has made it very clear that he wants to leave the Bavarian club at the end of the season, firstly by rejecting the renewal offer that was made to him and then by stating that his intention is to leave for another club in the next transfer window. With the player there will be no problem to reach an agreement because everything is already negotiated.
For starters, all the directors and executives of the club have repeated time and again that they are willing to keep him for one more season if he does not want to extend his contract. In fact, Bayern do not even plan to meet with Barcelona if their offer does not reach this minimum amount and even then they would only consider selling the player. The problem is that before releasing Lewandowski, Bayern must already have a replacement in sight and so far that has not happened.
There has been talk of Sasa Kalajdzic, Stuttgart's centre-forward, after a meeting with his agent. This player has undoubted quality, but his price, more than 100 million euros, makes this transfer unlikely. The Premier League has clubs that are far better placed to pay such a fee.
