‘Mundo Deportivo’ reveals that Lewandowski’s agent called the Barcelona president after the LaLiga president said they couldn’t sign him.

The situation

On May 31, Joan Laporta, president of FC Barcelona, ​​launched a harsh statement against the statements of Javier Tebas in which he questioned whether the Barcelona club had the resources to sign Robert Lewandowsky. “I would like to remind you that your duties are to watch over the Professional Football League and the clubs, so I ask you to refrain from commenting on whether or not we can sign a certain player, because that clearly harms the interests of FC Barcelona”. And he added: “ I don’t know if he makes these comments voluntarily or involuntarily. If he does it voluntarily, it is inadmissible, because there is a clear will to harm Barça’s interests. And if he does it involuntarily, it is further proof of his verbal incontinence and desire for prominence, which with all due respect, I think it is not his turn”. An unusual anger motivated by an episode that occurred that morning of the meeting of the board of directors in La Jonquera and that Mundo Deportivo has revealed. During that summit and after Tebas’s words were revealed, Lewandowski’s agent, Pini Zahavi, called Laporta by phone to ask for an explanation for the words of the president of LaLiga, who is ultimately in charge of approving the signings.

A call that first surprised the directors and later caused anger due to the doubts generated in the Polish striker’s environment just after Tebas’ words. Laporta reassured Zahavi and guaranteed him that Barça could deal with the operation during the market. According to the German press, there was also another call recently, in this case from Laporta to the agent, to thank him for Lewandwski’s public words in which he asked for his departure from Bayern.

The details

Barcelona needs to pay a transfer for the Polish striker, who ends his contract in 2023 but wants to leave Bayern. The German club has remained firm in its position that it will ask for a significant amount for his departure, so Barça needs to solve its financial problems first in order to be able to deal with the payments of an operation that is generating another gap between Tebas and Barça club, as was recently demonstrated in the interview granted by Eduardo Romeu, the economic vice-president, to Rac-1, in which he openly said that “Barça has said enough is enough for Tebas”.
