Bayern Munich want money upfront for Lewandowski, believe Barcelona might not exist in future

According to reports, Bayern want Barcelona to pay Lewandowski fee upfront rather than in installments since the German Champions are unsure if the Catalan giants will survive for long due to financial distress.

With Bayern striker Robert Lewandowski seeking a move to Barcelona, the two clubs have been involved in negotiations for more than two months now. But according to reports in Germany, any deal for the Polish striker will only happen if Barcelona can pay the transfer fee upfront.

German Champions Bayern are worried about the financial distress Barcelona is currently under, so much so that they want the Catalan giants to pay the transfer money upfront and not in installments.


German journalist Raphael Honigstein, who made an appearance on The Totally Football Show claimed that Bayern don’t want any installments because they’re not sure whether Barca are going to be around in one or two years’ time. According to the German expert, the Bavarian club wants all the money upfront, in cash.​

Lewandowski scored 344 goals in 375 appearances for the club. He helped Bayern win eight Bundesliga titles and also the Champions League title in 2020.

Barcelona though have been struggling with their finances for a few years now which even led to Lionel Messi's exit from the club. Now, with reports in the media floating about how Barcelona deferred Frankie de Jong's wage payment due to the financial crisis, there are growing concerns over the club's future.

While Barcelona are desperately trying to fill their No. 9 position, their current financial situation puts them in a precarious situation, and whether they can land their man or not, remains to be seen.
