Barcelona sets budget cap on main transfer target

Robert Lewandowski


It’s no big secret that FC Barcelona are neck deep in financial troubles. Likewise, it is also common knowledge that they have placed a target on Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski. The Catalans want to make the Polish star their marquee signing this summer, but they have set a limit to what they are willing to spend.

The fact of the matter is, Barcelona don’t have much wiggle room when it comes to finances. As it stands, they will need to sell a number of valuable players in order to even think about making a reasonable offer to Bayern Munich.

Lewandowski still has a year left in his contract, and so far, the club president and CEO have maintained that they intend to keep the player until the end of coming season. However, the player has expressed his desire to leave, claiming that he may have already played his final game for the Bundesliga champions.

With the prolific striker showing no desire to sign a contract extension, Bayern will risk losing him on a free transfer next summer. As such, Football España claims that Barcelona are hoping to tempt them with a 60 million euro offer. This way, the German giants will still be able to get a fee out of the move instead of letting Lewandowski leave for free.
