Laporta: We have made another offer to sign this world-class striker

Barcelona have been linked with a move for Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski, all summer.

Barca is believed to have had a bid rejected for Lewandowski.

Barça’s latest bid of €40m is said to be short of the asking price set by Bayern, even though the 33-year-old has a year left on his contract.

The Poland international is desperate to join Barcelona before Bayern’s pre-season begins on July 12 but the two clubs have failed to reach an agreement thus far.

However, it seems Bayern aren’t too keen on selling the 33-year-old striker, who still has a year left in his deal.

Barcelona president Joan Laporta has now confirmed that the club has made what seems like an improved but final offer for Laporta.

Barcelona president Joan Laporta said: “We made an offer to FC Bayern to sign Lewandowski and we are waiting for their response, I hope their response is positive”. #FCB

“I want to thank Lewandowski here in public for what he is doing to join us.”

Lewandowski has hinted he wants a move to Barcelona, even though he hasn’t said much to the media.

On May 30, Robert Lewandowski told journalists that he would talk about his future once he had finished playing for Poland in the Nations League in June.

But he chose to remain silent afterwards.

“I promised that after the game against Belgium I would say more about my future,” Lewandowski told GOL on his arrival in Mallorca.

“Please understand that I can’t say anything new.”
