The poker for a change from Robert Lewandowski apparently continues. Now Barcelona is said to have increased its offer again – but this is probably far from enough.
According to a corresponding report, the Catalans want to pay 35 million euros to the German champions for the 33-year-old world footballer. A first offer is said to have been 32 million euros. According to the article, Bayern demand up to 50 million euros for the Pole.
Barcelona’s financial problems
Lewandowski’s poker has been making the headlines for weeks. It is said that he no longer sees a future in Munich. However, his contract runs until June 30, 2023. Those responsible for the club, such as CEO Oliver Kahn and sports director Hassan Salihamidzic, had ruled out a transfer.
On Thursday, at a general meeting of the economically troubled Barcelonese, the way was cleared to open up new sources of income.
The sale of club shares should already bring about 600 to 800 million euros into the coffers in the next few weeks. The traditional Catalan club is said to have liabilities of 1.35 billion euros.
