STARTLING NEWS: Fabrizio Romano discloses Barcelona’s readiness to offload a prominent forward for a mere €20 million in January due to dissatisfaction with his lackluster performance. With just nine goals from 25 appearances, the player’s poor link-up play adds to Barcelona fans’ concerns about this unexpected turn.


Barcelona seems inclined to offload their seasoned striker, Robert Lewandowski, during the upcoming summer transfer window due to his disappointing performance this season. The Polish striker, acquired from Bayern Munich for €45 million in 2022, managed an impressive tally of 33 goals in 46 matches across various competitions in the 2022/23 season, contributing significantly to Barcelona’s La Liga triumph.

Reports from the Spanish publication Sport suggest Barcelona’s willingness to part ways with Lewandowski for an estimated fee ranging between €20 million to €30 million, considering his contractual obligation with the club until 2026. Despite criticisms about his link-up play, the 35-year-old forward has still managed to score nine goals from 25 appearances this season.

Should Lewandowski depart, Barcelona faces the challenge of finding a sustainable solution for the vacant number nine position. Ferran Torres, although an option, has been underwhelming since his €55 million transfer from Manchester City, starting just seven La Liga matches and scoring three goals this campaign.

Alternatively, the Spanish giants could consider Atletico Madrid’s loanee, Joao Felix, as a potential permanent signing in the summer. Another prospect could be the 17-year-old academy talent, Marc Guiu. However, Guiu’s limited experience with only three senior team appearances makes him an improbable choice at present. Barcelona faces the daunting task of securing a capable successor if Lewandowski departs from Xavi’s squad.
