It feels very good between Robert Lewandowski and FC Barcelona

The transfer of Robert Lewandowski this summer to Barcelona has taken a new dimension.

We are still in the middle of the season but we may already be experiencing one of the big transfers of the summer to come. While he has to play his Champions League quarterfinal first leg at Villarreal tonight, Robert Lewandowski is getting significantly closer to Barcelona. This is what Sport believes in its Wednesday morning edition.

It was already known that the clan of the Polish striker, represented by the ultra-influential Pini Zahavi, took advantage of the interest of Blaugrana to raise the stakes in Munich, where the player is under contract until 2023. This time, it seems that the decision is made. In addition to the fact that the player has made Barcelona his priority, two meetings in recent days between the two parties have finally convinced Lewandowski.

An operation valued at 100 M€

It’s mainly a contract issue. The striker will not accept anything other than a new three-season lease, whereas Bayern’s policy is to offer only one year for each renewal of a player over the age of 30. As Robert Lewandowski is, the Pole will be 34 years old next August and already in economic difficulties, the Rekordmeister will not risk putting his accounts in the red.

The contact is not broken either and only a big effort of the Bavarian management could make the file change again. This is the only big fear in Catalonia because they do not believe in the PSG option brandished by Zahavi for a while. All that remains is to find the funds and to agree on the conditions. Laporta estimated the Lewandowki operation at about 100 M€ between the transfer and the salary. That’s a lot of money for an older player, but Barça is ready.

Javier Tebas thinks he knows where Mbappé, Dembélé and Haaland will play next season

When it comes to giving his opinion on the hot files of the mercato in La Liga, Javier Tebas does not have his tongue in his pocket. And this time again, the boss of the Spanish league spoke about Kylian Mbappé, Ousmane Dembélé and Erling Haaland.

“I have the feeling that Dembélé will not stay in La Liga and that Mbappé, if he does not extend at PSG, will go to the Premier League or La Liga, but he will end up at Real Madrid. Haaland? I would bet on Real Madrid. Barca can’t recruit him because of their salary cap,” he told Radio Marca.
