Barca set to submit final offer for Robert Lewandowski this week
Robert Lewandowski has made a point of leaving Bayern Munich for Barcelona this summer.
So far, Bayern have rejected all offers from Barcelona.
It’s been reported that Barca could submit their final offer for the player this week.
A great poker game was seen during the transfer of Robert Lewandowski this summer. While the player himself has repeatedly publicly announced his intention to leave Bayern Munich for Barcelona, the German giants have claimed they want to keep him for another year.
Although Lewandowski’s contract is only one year away, Bayern Munich are reportedly keen to secure more than €50m for the player from Barcelona. A few offers from the Spanish club below this value have already been ignored by Bayern. According sky sports journalist, Florian Plattenberg, Barcelona are set to make their final bid for the pole. The new offer is expected to be between 50 and 55 million euros.
“A final offer from Barcelona is expected in the next few hours – of around €50m + bonuses. Bayern are ready to sell him for €50-55m. His transfer to Barcelona is increasingly likely this week “, he tweeted.

Bayern Munich have already signed Sadio Mane for Liverpool, Mane is not a classic No.9 like Lewandowski but he played for Liverpool in that role last season. Bayern bosses, however, have also claimed they want a similar replacement for Lewandowski. Only then would they allow him to leave.
As things stand, Bayern could get their desired fee for Lewandowski, they still haven’t signed a classic No.9. Among the new signings that have been signed by the club are midfielder Ryan Gravenberch, right-back Noussair Mazraoui and winger Sadio Mane.
Bayern have also been heavily linked with Juventus centre-back Matthijs de Ligt. Negotiations with the Italian club on the transfer of the Dutch defender are already underway. Bayern, however, might have to break their transfer record to sign the highly rated defender from the Turin club.
