Barcelona ‘set price for transfer fee and wages’ amid Lewandowski interest and Messi void

Barcelona want to spend a maximum of £42million on a transfer fee and wages for a new striker this summer amid interest in Robert Lewandowski, according to reports.

The Poland international is being viewed as the ideal replacement for Lionel Messi, who departed for Paris Saint-Germain last year. And with the veteran yet to pen a new deal with Bayern Munich, a possible move to the Nou Camp is on the cards.

Barcelona are planning to recruit a new centre-forward this summer, especially with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s goals starting to dry up.

And Lewandowski is being eyed amid his uncertain future at Bayern, with his current contract in Bavaria due to expire next summer.

It’s previously been reported that Barcelona would want to spend a maximum fee of around £35m on the 33-year-old, who continues to deliver as he approaches the twilight years of his career.

And Sport now say that, when wages are factored in, they’d want a maximum outlay of close to £42m overall.

Barcelona want a marketable, household name to fill the void left behind by Messi’s summer exit to PSG.
