"The president is obsessed with



And it is not something new or that it has to do with the fact that


has signed for Manchester City.

He has had it in mind for a long time.

And he will do everything in his power to sign him ».

This is how they express themselves from the executive leadership of Barcelona in the face of

Joan Laporta

's firm interest in Robert Lewandowski, who will turn 34 in August, leading the new era.

The operation by the legendary Polish striker, of course, can neither be simple nor immediate.

Prudence is extreme in the offices of the Camp Nou, where they prepare an offer with which the veteran Israeli agent

Pini Zahavi

(78 years old) can save the first barrier of the business: the opposition of that Bayern governed by

Oliver Kahn

and with

Hasan Salihamidzic

as sports director, and who insists that Lewandowski fulfill the remaining year of his contract.

Also announcing, always conditionally, that "quite possibly" that game against Wolfsburg was the last with Bayern.

Meanwhile, Barcelona is working to sell 49% of Barça Licensing & Merchandising (BLM) to a consortium formed by Fanatics and Investindustrial, according to the specialized portal 2Playbook.

Still fallow the possibility of closing a tailored agreement with the CVC fund, Barcelona's sports management has already received instructions to lighten the wage bill as it may be.

In Getafe, the French winger did not even put on his boots.

Sure of not exercising the purchase option of 30 million euros for

Adama Traoré
