Berlin, Jul 16 (EFE).- Bayern Munich have reached a verbal agreement with Barcelona for the transfer of Robert Lewandowski to the Catalan club, the CEO of Bundesliga powerhouse Oliver Kahn said on Saturday.
Bayern “reached an agreement with Barcelona, although at the moment only verbally,” he told German newspaper Bild, having previously ruled out the move a couple of months ago.
“Two months ago we had neither an offer for Robert nor alternatives in sight. Since then, the situation has fundamentally changed,” he said.
Eventually, Barcelona’s offer combined with signing Sadio Mane from Liverpool made the signing possible, he added.
The Polish forward joined Bayern in 2014 on a transfer from Borussia Dortmund.
Since then, Lewandowski, who turns 34 next month, helped the club hoist 19 titles, including eight Bundesligas, three German Cups and one Champions League.
He won the 2020 UEFA Best Player in Europe and the Best FIFA Men’s Player among other individual honors. EFE
