Barcelona finally submit £42m bid for Robert Lewandowski

Barcelona have submitted a new €50million (£42m) bid for Robert Lewandowski as they look to finally seal a deal for Bayern Munich’s superstar striker.

The Polish star’s future has dominated the summer transfer window but it seems the saga may be edging towards a conclusion with the German giants demanding a deal be done by Saturday, according to reports.

Barcelona have so far been unable to match Bayern’s financial demands for the striker, who scored 50 goals in 46 appearances last season.

But, according to French outlet RMC Sport, Barcelona have made another bid worth £42m for the wantaway forward which is closer to Bayern’s demands.

Xavi is on the cusp of signing Leeds winger Raphinha for £56m and looks likely to tie down winger Ousmane Dembele to a new long-term deal at the Nou Camp.

But he sees Lewandowski as the final piece of his new look attack that he hopes will help Barcelona wrestle the LaLiga title back off Real Madrid and be more competitive in Europe next season.

Bayern Munich want him to stay, but they are not going to force him to do so and have set his price tag at 50 million euros.

Barcelona‘s intention is to spend less than this, but the Bundesliga champions do not seem willing to negotiate. Bayern Munich want to find a solution before Saturday, when the team will be presented to the fans.
