Robert Lewandowski’s former team-mate claims he wants Barcelona transfer

Speaking to El Larguero, Martinez said: “I think there’s a possibility he goes to Barça.

“Lewy believes he would have won a Ballon d’Or or two if he played in Spain, that’s why he wants to try.”

Lewandowski was unfortunate not to be awarded the individual accolade in 2020, when he helped fire Bayern to the treble with 55 goals in 47 games across the Covid-hit season.

Barcelona will do everything they can to try and land the Poland international this summer, with his contract set to expire in 2023.

The 33-year-old has enjoyed another productive season in Germany, scoring 48 goals and registering six assists in just 43 appearances.

While Barcelona have enjoyed a resurgence under former midfielder Xavi, they are still looking to improve their potency up front.

Barca are still reeling from the loss of Lionel Messi who joined French Champions Paris Saint-Germain last summer.

A player of Lewandowski’s calibre would therefore be a very welcome addition to the squad.

This was no doubt an instigating factor in the Barca’s awful start the season.

That was compounded by an early exit from the Champions League.

The Spanish giants have already brought in Ferran Torres and ex-Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, with the latter hitting the ground running with nine goals in 12 La Liga games.
