TIt’s the main goal Barcelona We have in the next summer transfer window to sign a striker, with the club concentrating all its efforts on finding the necessary funds to finance such a move.

Robert Lewandowski One of the following possible targets Bayern MunichElimination of Villarreal in the Champions League quarter-finals.
Its quality is undoubted, but its price is high and it is doubtful Barcelona They are willing to go for a short-term option in Lewandowski Or switch to a promising young striker.
The Polish striker has another year left on his contract at Bayern His price is estimated at around 60 million euros, which is a very high figure considering that the striker will turn 34 years old next August.
“But it’s very good,” people say at Barcelona When they are questioned about it.

while, Lewandowskiagent, Benny Zahaviis doing its best to find the best financial offer. Barcelona president Joan Laporta He has an excellent relationship with Zahaviand they have done business together in the past.
Barcelona can play Zahavi The card as long as they have the funds to sign it. However, the Poland striker is not the only option they have.
Barcelona She was trying to sign Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland for a long time with Laporta Until he met his agent Mino Raiola On several occasions.
Xavi Hernandez He also had a chat with the 21-year-old to explain his plans for Barcelona. Haaland Likes the option to go to Barcelonabut it has also attracted the interest of other powerful clubs in a better financial position, such as real madridAnd Bayern Munich And Manchester.
BarcelonaThe main issue is that they cannot compete financially with elite European clubs, who could invest more money in financing such a move.
The Catalans are in talks to strike a deal with the CVC investment fund, but even if they get financial backing from there, they will still need to offload some players.
step to Haaland can cost Barcelona About 250 million euros, 75 million euros of which will be the transfer fee paid Dortmund. They will also need to cover his salary and offer requirements Raiola About 60 million euros in terms of his commission.
Liao, Gabriel Jesus, Darwin Nunez…
These three options are also seen as expensive. Rafael Liao he is LaportaFavorite of the three, but AC Milan They do not plan to sell him and are left wanting to renew his contract, with his price set at 50 million euros.
while, Darwin Nunez He is a football player Barcelona Watched for a long time. Benfica They are ready to take advantage of him and there are currently several suitors who will have to pay between 75 and 100 million euros to sign him.
