Lewandowski is committed about taking Barcelona back to the top
Speaking to SPORT, reputed Polish journalist Tomasz Wlodarczyk, who is close to the camp of Bayern Munich superstar Robert Lewandowski, has given an update on the striker’s future plans.
The 33-year-old is entering the final year of his contract with Bayern Munich and has decided not to sign an extension. Barcelona have emerged as Lewandowski’s favoured destination for the summer, with the Catalan giants also intent on signing him up this summer.
Personal terms over a three-year deal have already been sorted between the two parties, but a move has yet to materialise as Bayern Munich are unwilling to let go of their legendary striker.
Barcelona have submitted two offers for the Poland captain but they have fallen on deaf years at the Allianz Arena, who remain insistent that they expect Lewandowski to return to pre-season training in two weeks.
Despite this, Lewandowski remains intent on moving to Camp Nou and is ready to lead the club back to its glory days, claims Tomasz Wlodarczyk.
“Bayern is a world reference, obviously. But when you talk about great greats, you think of Liverpool, Barça, Madrid or Manchester United,” he said.
“Barça is not going through a good moment, but it is two steps ahead of Bayern at the media level. Robert is very motivated to lead this new stage, to return the club to the place it deserves.”
Wlodarczyk then went on to add that there is no turning back for Lewandowski at this point as he is intent on a new big challenge at this stage of his career.
“He considers that, about to turn 34, it is time for one last big challenge. and Barça offers it to him,” the journalist said.
“Of course, the next course would possibly have more options to win the Champions League in Munich, but this goes further. He wants to be the visible face of the new Barça and help recover lost ground,” he added.
Despite Bayern’s claims of not wanting to sell, it is believed that they will offload him should an offer of €50 million come along. Whether Barcelona are willing to stump up the cash remains to be seen.
