The future of Polish striker Robert Lewandowski seems to be further and further away from Bayern Munich. Meanwhile, Barcelona, according to press reports, is preparing its final offensive to have the gunner.
An assembly of Barcelona will be key to define the hiring of Lewandowski, according to the Mundo Deportivo newspaper.
“The expected Extraordinary Assembly of FC Barcelona to activate the famous economic levers with the green light for the minority sale of Barça Licensing & Merchandising up to 49.9% and the transfer of the TV rights of LaLiga for a maximum of 25% was held by Robert Lewandowski and his own entourage, who see his landing at the Camp Nou as more likely”, says the publication.

The money Bayern expects to receive for Lewandowski
There is still no official offer for the Pole, for whom Bayern Munich would expect to receive between 30 and 32 million euros. However, Xavi Hernández, the Barcelona coach, hopes to have Lewandowski when the club’s pre-season begins on July 16.
The attacker reiterated his desire to leave Bayern Munich but added that he does not want to force anything and that what it is about is looking for the best solution for everyone.
“I still have a year left on my contract, that’s why I’ve asked the club for the go-ahead for a transfer. I think that in the current situation it is the best solution, especially since the club can still receive transfer money,” Lewandowski told Bild newspaper.
“I don’t want to force anything, it’s not about that. It’s about looking for the best solution. You have to cool emotions, I want to speak calmly and not through the media,” he added.
Lewandowski pointed out that he did not want an escalation, that he had great respect for Bayern and that the club and Munich had become a second homeland for him. “I hope the fans will one day understand me,” he asked.
Lewandoski is still in talks with Bayern managers
Lewandowski’s remarks were preceded by a telephone conversation with Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic after Lewandowski reiterated in an interview his desire to leave Bayern.
