French giant Paris Saint-Germain entered the race to sign Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski.
The Pole has publicly stated that he wants to leave the Bundesliga giants with a war of words between him and the club that has been the order of the day in recent weeks at press conferences.
Barcelona were the team in pole position for the striker’s signature but given their current financial situation, they could let the player slip away with PSG who are now said to be keen to add the Pole to their attack next season.

Barcelona is working on a financial deal for Lewandowski, as Bayern pays about 50 million euros, although his contract expires at the end of next season, and according to the French website L’Equipe, this financial situation made Paris Saint-Germain hover above the player.
PSG are ready to meet the current asking price although Bayern have confirmed they will sit down for talks with Lewandowski next week following his UEFA Nations League stint with Poland.
