Barcelona News Transfer: Barcelona could eye a move for Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus this summer. The club’s board are completely focused on signing Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski in the current transfer window.
However, Bayern is not reluctant to let him go for free and they want Barcelona to pay £50m. This is a very high fee for a 33-year-old striker who is well beyond his prime years.
Although the Polish striker has scored more than 350 goals in the Bundesliga, his age could be an issue. He may play for Barcelona for another two or three years but that is not worth the investment.
Also, Lewandowski’s scenario with Bayern has still not changed. His agent Zahavi is still busy having discussions with the German club. Both the player and the club are unable to accept their ideologies.
Lewandowski has publicly criticized Bayern and has expressed his anger towards the club’s board. Whereas’ Bayern Munich’s sporting director and the president are also not happy with the way Lewandowski has shown disrespect towards the club that has moulded his career.
If things don’t solve sooner then Barcelona will need to look for other alternatives this summer. Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus fits the bill perfectly for Xavi.
