These photos probably don't lie: Robert Lewandowski met Xavi, the coach of FC Barcelona, in Ibiza.
Ibiza - Robert Lewandowski is enjoying his vacation - and by no means in secret.
The (still) Bayern star has been busy using his social media channels in the past few days, including a cryptic message.
But one thing he would have preferred to keep hidden: the Pole was spotted in Ibiza meeting Barcelona coach Xavi.
Relaxation with the family was apparently not the only reason for the trip to the Balearic island.
Well-connected Spanish journalist Gerard Romero uploaded two photos to Twitter on Wednesday purporting to show a meeting between Lewandowski and Xavi.

The first picture shows Lewandowski entering a restaurant.
According to Romero, this is supposed to be the noble location "Lio", Internet research shows: He's right.
In the second photo, Xavi can be seen climbing the exact same stairs.
The Bayern striker and the Barça coach cannot be seen together in one photo, but it cannot be assumed that it is a fake.
It is possible, but unlikely, of course, that the two visited the restaurant at different times.
Speaking against this: The same receptionist can be seen in the same outfit in both photos.
FC Bayern remains firm with Lewandowski: "Can save another offer"
What the two talked about, of course, remained behind closed doors.
But it has long been known: Lewandowski and FC Barcelona can imagine working together, the mutual interest is documented.
Only FC Bayern is still opposed and does not want to let its top striker go.

Rumor has it that there have already been several phone calls between Xavi and Lewandowski.
Recently there was talk of a new offer from the Catalans, but the Munich team doesn't seem to be too impressed.
Uli Hoeneß made it clear: "I don't know anything about a new offer.
From what I've heard in several conversations, Barcelona can save themselves another offer.” The saga is far from over.
