Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich have this weekend reiterated their demands for Robert Lewandowski, amid Barcelona’s ongoing pursuit of the prolific hitman.
Links between Polish international Lewandowski and Barca have of course been rampant for several months now.
This comes with the 33-year-old having made public his desire to seek pastures new this summer, on the back of a prolific stint in Germany with Bayern Munich.
Lewandowski: “My era at Bayern is over. I don’t see any possibility to continue playing for this club anymore” 🚨 #FCBayern
“Bayern’s a serious club and I believe they won’t keep me, I don’t want to play there anymore. A transfer is the best solution. I hope they don’t stop me”. pic.twitter.com/ieO3q0tEBO

The Camp Nou, in turn, has long been tipped as Lewandowski’s landing spot of choice, with Barca’s mutual interest in securing a deal meaning a transfer is viewed as altogether likely to come to fruition.
And yet, as the weeks continue to pass, little word has been forthcoming when it comes to positive steps forward in the Blaugrana’s pursuit.
In turn, a fresh insight into the situation has, on Sunday, been provided.
The info comes courtesy of reliable outlet Bild, who point towards Bayern’s asking price as continuing to throw a spanner in the works of Lewandowski’s leading suitors.
The powers that be at the Allianz Arena, it is claimed, will not even come to the table in the case of anything less than a €50 million offer being tabled.
With Barca, as of yet, having failed to even come close to meeting such demands, the saga remains at a standstill, potentially opening the door to the likes of Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain, too keen on Lewandowski’s services.
Bayern Munich are only willing to negotiate with Barcelona for Lewandowski starting at €50m.
