According to Fabrizio Romano, Robert Lewandowski is convinced to join Barcelona after personal terms agreed on a three-year deal months ago. Bayern Munich do not believe that Barcelona will exist in the near future.
And according to a recent report from The Athletic’s Raphael Honigstein, who has claimed the German giants are demanding money upfront for striker Robert Lewandowski because they think Barcelona will go under.
Despite enjoying eight very successful years at the Allianz Arena, Lewandowski, 33, is keen for a new challenge as he enters the final few years of his career.
Nothing has changed in Robert Lewandowski’s mind. He’s still convinced on Barcelona as next club after personal terms agreed months ago on a three year deal, no negotiations with any other club as of now. 🇵🇱 #FCB
Barcelona will contact FC Bayern again soon.

Nevertheless, it won’t be simple to try to force a transfer away from the Bavarians, particularly as the Polish international still has one year left on his deal.
Honigstein claims that Bayern Munich’s reluctance to accept an agreement with installment payments is actually a result of their uncertainty regarding the viability of its Spanish opponents over the next year or two.
