Polish media claim that Robert Lewandowski wants to leave Bayern for Barcelona

Polish sensation Robert Lewandowski has reportedly begun contract negotiations with Barcelona ahead of a move away from Bayern Munich.

After undergoing one of the worst financial spells in their history, the Spanish giants are officially back as massive players on the global scene. Under the stern management of Xavi, the team has gone from strength to strength.

Barca bolstered their front line in January by signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Ferran Torres. Starting with a 1-0 victory against Alaves, they began a sensational 14-game unbeaten run. This streak saw them rise to second place in the La Liga table.

With the development of a new stadium and a huge deal with streaming giants Spotify, The Nou Camp, or ‘The Spotify Camp Nou’ as it’ll soon be known, has once again become a desirable place to play the beautiful game. After a brief time in the abyss, Barca want to make a massive splash in the transfer market, and they’ve set their sights on the world’s best striker.

Robert Lewandowski set to move to Barcelona?

There’s no denying that the 33-year-old is one of the greatest players on Earth. He’s helped his current club secure seven Bundesliga titles and scored 340 goals. Lewandowski is as close to the perfect player as a human being can be.

He possesses terrifying strength, sublime balance, rapid movement, an exquisite footballing IQ, and he knows precisely where the goal is.

But despite this, Bayern don’t want to extend his current contract any further. Due to the player’s veteran status, they may let him go despite his obvious class. This could leave the door wide open for Barcelona to pounce.

If the club wants to return to their glory days, securing the Polish icon would be a step in the right direction. Lewandowski remains a valuable asset to any team in world football. The move would shake up the power balance of European football.
