FC Barcelona comments on reports that there has already been personal contact with Pini Zahavi because of a transfer from Robert Lewandowski from FC Bayern Munich. Sports director Mateu Alemany said at the Spanish pay-TV provider Movistar: “There was no meeting with Lewandowski’s agent.”
However, Barca’s sports director did not give a deeper insight. “I also don’t like talking about the negotiation process,” said the 59-year-old, who doesn’t like “talking about players who are under contract with other clubs.”
Last week got it according to information from picture and sports1 but given a meeting between FC Bayern Munich and Zahavi in a Munich hotel. The record champion would therefore like to extend the 33-year-old. However, Zahavi requires a corresponding overall package of term and salary.
Lewandowski himself tends to say goodbye, it was said again and again. At the last meeting, the player side even asked for approval, the French radio station reported RMC. The Bayern bosses meanwhile always referred to the contract period until 2023 in public appearances and seem to rule out a sale next summer. “We are currently in contact with Robert and we want him to stay at Bayern as long as possible,” said CEO Oliver Kahn recently double pass from sports1.
The relationship between Barca and Munich is considered harmonious. Maybe that’s why the Catalans are holding back publicly. Lewandowski scored 343 goals in 373 games for the German series champion. The Pole was named FIFA World Player of the Year in 2020 and 2021. However, he has not yet won the Ballon d’Or.
