Robert Lewandowski is yet to officially tender his request to leave Bayern Munich but has affirmed that he is open to “everything” amid speculations that he might leave the German Bundesliga giants this summer.
Robert Lewandowski is at the tail end of his career and has a dream of playing in Spain before he bows out of the game. Reports claimed that one of his childhood dreams is to play for Real Madrid or FC Barcelona before he retires.
But Real Madrid are not looking in his direction even though he is currently one of the best strikers in the world that has the potential of scoring 30 plus goals every season. Real Madrid are concentrating on their effort to bring Paris Saint Germain striker Kylian Mbappe to the club this summer and they are also interested in Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.
Hence, Robert Lewandowski is reportedly focused on moving to FC Barcelona, and the Spanish giants which are “desperately” in search of a world-class striker that guarantees 30 goals or more per season are interested in him.
Just like Real Madrid, FC Barcelona were interested in Erling Haaland but due to the financial complications the club has been battling with, Barca have shifted their attention away from the Norwegian striker.
Though Lewandowski is 33-year-old, clubs like Liverpool, Manchester City, and even Paris Saint Germain have reportedly shown interest in him since he affirmed that he is open to a new adventure.
Note that the Polish striker has been playing in the German Bundesliga since July 1, 2010. He came to the league after Borussia Dortmund paid €4.75 million to sign him from Polish club Lech Poznan.
The Poland international spent four years at Dortmund before he decided to join the club’s rivals, Bayern Munich on a free transfer on July 1, 2014. Since then, he has been the club’s best player and most prolific goalscorer.
After winning seven Bundesliga titles, three DFB-Pokal, four DFL-Supercup, one UEFA Champions League, one UEFA Super Cup, and one FIFA Club World Cup, and Polish striker believe that he can conquer Spanish football in 33-year-old.
“I am open to everything. I’m quiet,” Lewandowski recently told Sky in Germany.
“It is important for me to be able to focus on my game, always on what can happen in the last match.
“Everything that remains to be done regarding the contracts is a secondary issue and remains in the background.”
The offer FC Barcelona have reportedly prepared for Robert Lewandowski
On August 29, 2019, Robert Lewandowski renewed his contract with Bayern Munich after four years of playing for the club. The contract he signed with the German side in 2019 reportedly earns him £313,666.50 per week which is good pay to take care of his beautiful 33-year-old wife Anna and his two children, Klara and Laura.
But the Polish striker wants to try another adventure and FC Barcelona is willing to allow him to explore Spanish football.
A Sky Sports report claimed that FC Barcelona are preparing to offer Lewandowski a 3-year deal which could earn him a whopping £25 million to £33 million per season. All things being equal, the deal is expected to be completed this summer.
