SM News Lewandowskijpg

Barca Times' Shay Luassi: "Robert Lewandowski is considered a possibility to join Barcelona in the summer. The Polish superstar is still a Bayern player but his contract expires next year, and Barcelona are said to be keen.

Sources at the club say Pini Zehavi, Lewandowski's agent, is in very good contact with Joan Laporta and they have already spoken several times in recent weeks about a possible move.

Barcelona’s number one target is another Bundesliga striker - Erling Haaland. However, his signing will be difficult with all of the world’s biggest clubs trying to get him."
