The situation

Robert Lewandowski is in a hurry. The Polish attacker wants to have his future resolved before July 12, the day on which he is summoned to join the Bayern Munich discipline: his intention is only to return to the Bavarian club to say goodbye to his teammates and the fans. Through his agent, Pini Zahivi, he has urged Barcelona to speed up his transfer and to spare him the experience of training with his current club, when he has already made his intentions very clear, Lewandowski’s representative contacted the president Joan Laporta last week to remind him of the efforts that his client has made during all this time and that now it is up to the Blaugrana club to act accordingly. In fact, Barcelona is pending to activate some of the levers that it has opened this week to start entering liquidity and be able to successfully face the first operations. The sale of part of LaLiga’s television rights is the one that seems most advanced and could bring in up to 500 million euros. The coach, Xavi Hernández is also pushing to have Lewandowski in his ranks as soon as possible. The coach has informed Mateu Alemany that he would like to have the Pole as of July 11 , the day on which the Barcelona internationals who have participated in the Nations League are summoned. In addition, from a marketing point of view, it is also considered vital that the still Bayern striker be one of the protagonists of the American tour that Barcelona will undertake on July 16. 

The details 

It seems evident that the negotiations between both clubs are about to enter a decisive point. In fact, Bayern has gone from considering it non-transferable a little over two weeks ago to being open to negotiation with a starting price of 60 million. In the Blaugrana club it is considered a very high figure , especially considering that next year he will be free and that this August he will turn 34, so the price he would be willing to pay would be closer to 40 million. In any case, the negotiations are said to be quick , since neither party wants it to become the soap opera of the summer.
