As per German publication TZ, Barcelona are preparing a fresh offer for Bayern Munich superstar Robert Lewandowski as they look to get the deal over the line at the earliest.
The 33-year-old legendary striker is the top target for Barcelona this summer.
The Poland captain is entering the final year of his contract with Die Roten and has made his desire public, while a contract agreement with the Blaugrana is already believed to be in place.
However, Bayern Munich are proving a tough nut to crack as they keep insisting that Lewandowski is not for sale and will see his contract out at the club.
Barcelona, though, are ready to make serious efforts to land Lewandowski and finalise a deal for the veteran striker, who won the Bundesliga Golden Boot last season, within the next couple of weeks.
The Blaugrana had already made an opening offer of €32 million which was not good enough to convince the Bavarian giants to part ways with their ace goalscorer.
And now, Barcelona are readying a fresh offer for Lewandowski, which is likely to be around the €50 million mark, which could force Bayern Munich to reconsider their stance on the centre-forward.
Bayern Munich had reportedly demanded a sum of €50 million in a single instalment from Barcelona for the 33-year-old.
And following the assembly vote in favour of selling a share of the club’s assets to generate finances, the Catalans should have funds to meet those demands once they complete the finalise the sales of stakes in BLM and TV rights.
It remains to be seen if Barcelona return with a €50 million offer for Lewandowski and whether the proposal is enough to convince Bayern Munich to let go of the striker, who ended the 2021/22 campaign with 50 goals.
