A recent report from Diario SPORT has offered an in-depth report on the future of Robert Lewandowski.

It has been established the Polish international will leave Allianz Arena in the summer, as Bayern Munich are aware of the lack of harmony and animosity he would bring to the dressing room, especially following his comments on Bayern during the break.

However, Bayern are not willing to let their star man leave the club in a cut-price deal. In fact, they are expecting a figure of around €70 million for the services of the Polish international.

Such a figure has been deemed too high by Barcelona. The club are not willing to pay a fortune for a player who is set to turn 34 before the start of next season and only has a year left on his contract.

Barcelona have had a couple of bids rejected by Bayern, the most recent of which saw them table a figure of around €35 million. The Catalans are soon expected to come up with their final offer once they sanction the sale of BLM and TV rights.

The sale of the club’s assets could generate up to €800 million in revenue, giving Barça a much-needed boost that will help them step up their efforts to sign top targets.

However, Barcelona are not willing to pay more than €40 million for Lewandowski. It will likely be the valuation of their final offer. The club are forecasting a major impasse should Bayern Munich castle for a fee of around €60 million.

But there is optimism around the Barcelona camp that Bayern are desperate to sanction the sale of Lewandowski, knowing he will only disrupt the harmony of the team. The Bavarians may look at a €50 million bid quite favourably, as per local reports from Germany.

Although Barcelona are not willing to exceed the €40 million mark, they could include achievable add-ons to reach the magic figure of €50 million, though it will not be surprising to see this deal drag on for long.
