According to numerous reports, Poland national team captain Robert Lewandowski has come to an agreement on a three-year deal with La Liga side Barcelona!
Bayern Munich star Lewy, who has just over a year left on his contract with the Bavarian giants, reportedly agreed terms with officials of the Catalan club. If accurate, he could put pen to paper on January 1st, and take employment in Spain six months later, without a transfer fee.
However, if Barcelona would be prepared to shell out cash for the striker, a move could happen much sooner. According to some, Lewy’s elapsing contract means he would be valued at around €60 million, although TVP Sport believe that he may be able to take advantage of the Webster Ruling – a provision in FIFA’s regulations in which a player can buy himself out of a contract early – for less than half of that amount.
Whilst speculation has been rife about Lewandowski’s future for a while, it could also, however, be a ploy for the striker to get his current club to offer him a contract of increased value. TVP also report that Lewy has already informed Bayern’s CEO, Oliver Kahn, about his intentions to leave the club, although German paper Bild have denied this is the case.
Regardless, Lewandowski is undoubtedly one of the most sought after signatures in world football. As well as Barca, it was also mentioned that Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City and Liverpool also had offers to the striker on the table.
