Robert Lewandowski willing to take wage cut to join Barcelona, and could have significance for Wolves

Robert Lewandowski is said to be willing to reduce his salary considerably in order to get a move to Barcelona – in a development that could have significance for Wolves.

The Poland international will only have a year left on his contract this summer.

The star is a top target for Barca, who are determined to replace the goals of Lionel Messi.

Lewandowski may be turning 34 in August. But the player’s agent does not put off the Catalan giants, who know how well he looks after himself.

Lewandowski’s form since turning 30 has been simply unbelievable, and the club are confident they can get a few more great years out of him.

Oliver Kahn has previously stated that Bayern don’t want to sell their talisman. But apparently, Barca hope to sign him for £25 million. And they would stretch to just under £30 million at the most.

It seems as though there could be a chance of a transfer happening. Especially with Lewandowski willing to cut his wages by £5.1 million-a-year (Mundo Deportivo).

The situation could potentially impact Wolves, as recently, there were claims that Bayern had interest in Raul Jimenez.

The Mexico international may have struggled this season, but the Bavarian giants could target the 30-year-old, who does have a similar play style to that of Lewandowski.

And last week, it was claimed that Wolves would be willing to cash in on the star.

Supposedly, the club would be prepared to take £15 million.

The report from El Futbolero had actually claimed that Bayern were readying an offer of £21 million for Jimenez.

Robert Lewandowski and Barcelona situation is one for Wolves fans to keep an eye on, following recent Jimenez claims

It would be really interesting to see if Barca are able to snag Lewandowski this summer.

They don’t want to lose him. But realistically, he only has a year left on his contract. And he’s already said he won’t extend. That could ultimately force Bayern’s hand.

And if he does leave, then perhaps Bayern will coming calling for Jimenez.

Many a Wolves fan would be very sorry to see him go.

But the club may feel it’s time for change, especially given the goalscoring struggles of the team throughout 2021/22.
