Several European clubs are eyeing Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski, and Barcelona are among those interested in signing the veteran striker this summer.
The Blaugrana have told Bayern Munich of their desire to sign a Polish international, but the Bavarians were unwilling to negotiate his departure.
However, according to Bild, Bayern is now open to the idea of making money through Lewandowski.
The 33-year-old’s contract expires in 2023 and he is unwilling to renew it, while Bayern wants to avoid losing him on a free transfer next summer.
Barcelona contacted Lewandowski in recent weeks, with President Joan Laporta taking part in the talks. In fact, a Barcelona official has admitted that signing the Polish striker is possible, despite the club’s financial problems.
With Bayern reportedly changing their strategy, Barcelona could sign Lewandowski in exchange for between 40 and 50 million euros.
Lewandowski, who joined Bayern in the 2014/15 season, is looking forward to the turnaround. He has won 20 trophies with the Bavarians, as well as five trophies for the Bundesliga.
This year he will win the sixth medal as he has scored 34 goals, 10 more than Patrik Schick of Bayer Leverkusen, who is second in the scoring charts.
In any case, Lewandowski is not the only striker to have been linked with Barcelona, nor is Blaugrana the only club looking for him.
The Pole player will have to reduce his financial needs if he wants to play at Camp Nou due to the club’s salary limits.
