Work is well under way for FC Barcelona in the Lewandowski case. Bayern’s Polish striker wants to join the Blaugranas. However, there is a catch: how will Barça pay for it? Javier Tebas, the boss of the Liga, still doesn’t know it at the moment.
After an interesting winter market marked by the arrival of Ferran Torres, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Adama Traoré, one would have almost forgotten the precarious financial situation in which FC Barcelona finds itself. The Catalan club had still reported a debt of one billion euros at the end of the summer of 2021. If it has degreased with the sale of players, the reduction of certain salaries or even their final departure as for Philippe Coutinho, Barça is not yet out of business. And this is felt in his summer market, which was intended to be ambitious but which could be sealed by a forced austerity cure.
Lewandowski at Barça? Thebes strongly doubted
This is especially the case for the hot file this early June, the arrival of Robert Lewandowski. The Polish striker has made it clear that he wants to leave Bayern Munich, with a view to coming to the Camp Nou next season. He has only one year left on his contract in Bavaria, forcing the Blaugranas to pay a transfer fee to the Germans. Problematic with Barça’s red-hot accounts but also compared to the Liga’s economic rules. Javier Tebas recalled it, expressing his doubts about the possibility of this transfer.
Javier Tebas on EFE: “As of today, Barcelona can’t sign Lewandowski. They know their financial situation and the rules of the league. I don’t know if they will sell Frenkie or Pedri, but they know they have to sell players or certain assets. ” #Transfers ⁇

« Barça already know what to do if they want to sign Lewandowski. They are well aware of our rules of economic control. This is to avoid major economic problems. I don’t know if they will sell De Jong or Pedri or Pepito Pérez, but they know they have to make more money and sell assets. À to this day, they still cannot sign Lewandowski. Barça have accumulated a lot of losses in recent years and have to fill the pantry. Just as Madrid filled it, Barça emptied it He said at a Europa Press luncheon on Tuesday. Cash, the boss of the Liga has chilled the dreams of Catalan fans to see a star again fill the ranks of their attack next season.
