Bayern Munich reportedly demanded an upfront cash payment from Barcelona in order to recruit Robert Lewandowski this summer.

Since the Polish forward’s wish to leave Bayern Munich at the end of last season, the Catalan giants have been widely connected with a move for him.

However, the German club is currently unwilling to bend from its £43 million asking price, and they now want to be paid in full upfront for Lewandowski due to concerns over Barcelona’s capacity to pay the cost in installments.

The Athletic’s Raphael Honigstein stated on The Totally Football Show with James Richardson: “Bayern Munich has reportedly informed FC Barcelona that they do not want any instalments in any deal for Robert Lewandowski and that they want all the cash up front.”

Honigstein summarized Bayern’s position with a joke: “Bayern may not be certain that FC Barcelona will exist in one or two years!”

Bayern’s concerns are justified given that Barcelona’s vice president of economic affairs, Eduard Romeu, stated last month that the Spanish club needed to raise £428 million to avoid financial catastrophe.

Last summer, the club also had to allow Lionel Messi to depart because they could no longer afford his high salary.

Barcelona have since reached a £178m agreement to sell 10 percent of their TV rights for the next 25 years, allowing them to acquire Franck Kessie and Andreas Christensen.

However, Xavi has not been given the green light to spend freely during the current transfer window as a result of this arrangement.

Despite this, Barcelona has continued to pursue Lewandowski, and their £34 million offer for the striker was rejected in June.

Lewandowski has made it obvious that he wants to move to the Nou Camp, and he has declared repeatedly that he cannot see himself playing for Bayern again.
