FC Barcelona want Robert Lewandowski - but at what price?
Now there is probably a first offer from the Catalans on the table.
Is the amount enough for FC Bayern?
Munich/Barcelona - How much is a world footballer worth?
FC Barcelona is serious about courting Robert Lewandowski (33), who will probably leave FC Bayern a year before his contract ends.
But the crux of the matter is the sum - how much is enough for Bayern to let their best goal-getter go?
The first offer is now said to be on the table.
Robert Lewandowski: The first offer from Barcelona is probably 32 million euros
According to information from
, the first written offer is 32 million euros.
This is significantly less than the sums that recently went through the media, where up to 60 million were mentioned.
So it's quite possible that Bayern will demand more for their top scorer.
Since it's only the first offer, Barcelona could well put more on the table should Bayern decline.
The newspaper writes that FCB imagines around 40 million for Lewandowski.
, his market value is 50 million.
The Catalans offer the Bundesliga top scorer a three-year deal.
Robert Lewandowski: Bayern boss Kahn insists on the fulfillment of the contract
Lewandowski had already told FCB that he would not be extending the contract and said in the last game of the season against Wolfsburg: "It's quite possible that it was my last game for Bayern.
I can't say for sure, but it could be." Barca's coach Xavi had also confirmed his interest in Lewandowski, but said the negotiations could be "difficult" because it's Bayern Munich.
Although there are many indications of a farewell, the Bayern bosses can also imagine keeping Lewandowski for another year and then letting him go on a free transfer next year.
CEO Oliver Kahn said: "Robert Lewandowski has a contract until 2023, and he will fulfill it." The last word has not yet been spoken - but the first offer from Spain is unlikely to dissuade Kahn and Co. from this point of view.
FC Bayern is planning a total upheaval - the first talks have already been held
Cash rain for FC Bayern?
