The Catalans giants have been facing a financial crisis that’s cost them Lionel Messi’s departure from the club, which has led to their poor performance at the beginning of the concluded season. Under the management of Xavi, they managed to move up their gameplay and finished second on the table, with some additional players like Adama, Ferran, and Aubameyang.
Regardless, they’re after the 34year old Polish striker Robert Lewandowski after he makes it known in an interview that he doesn’t plan to stay in his club ( Bayern Munich) despite having a year more on his contract. Since May, he has shown his interest in the Catalan club on his social media, interviews, and through the media.
“My time at Bayern is over,”
Lewandowski said at a press conference on Monday.
“I don’t see any possibility of continuing my career there. The best solution is an exit. I hope they won’t keep me.”
His recent interview with the eleven sports clearly shows how he is willing to play in Spain, stating that he has a home there and how he got feeling for Spain.
“Spain is great! We have a home in Mallorca,”
Lewandowski told Eleven Sports.
The feeling for Spain is there, and I think it’s a really good place, not just for holidays.”
Although he’s (Lewandowski) willing to play for the Catalans, there might still be a setback on the deal regarding the financial crisis the club is facing. Also, there’s still a year on his contract with Bayern Munich, of which they’re still scouting for a better replacement. They (Bayern) are in talks with the Liverpool striker Sadio Mané; it might be easy for the Germans to let go of the striker if the deal is done. There’s also a possibility that the Bavarians might go for a Lewandowski – Mane swap deal with Liverpool.
Regardless Barcelona is making attempts to sign the Polish striker; Barcelona is ready to let go of their young midfielder Frankie de Jong for either Manchester United or Arsenal. Meanwhile, the club is also gunning for the Belgium/Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku if the Lewandowski deal fell out.
Can Barcelona survive the crisis and sign a big name?
