With Joan Laporta seemingly hinting at Barcelona dropping out of the race to sign Erling Haaland, the Catalans are looking at other alternatives to bolster their options up top.
And speaking on Cadena SER’s Carrusel Deportivo, journalist Adria Albets has claimed that the Blaugrana are looking at Bayern Munich icon Robert Lewandowski as a potential alternative to strengthen their frontline.
The Poland international is one of the most prolific goalscorers in the game and has plundered 337 goals in 365 matches since joining Bayern Munich in 2014, breaking all sorts of goalscoring records in the Bundesliga.
Lewandowski has been in red-hot form as usual this season, already banging in 43 goals from just 36 matches across all competitions, setting Bayern up for another Bundesliga title and helping them progress to the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League.
However, the 33-year-old will be entering the final year of his contract with the German champions at the end of the season and could consider a new challenge in his career.
There have been links to clubs in the Premier League, while Barcelona have also emerged as a potential suitor for the veteran striker, who has shown no signs of slowing down despite his advancing age.
A serial winner who has been at the top of his game for years now, Lewandowski would undoubtedly be an excellent signing for Barça even if it would only be for a short-term.
Any move would depend on whether the Catalan giants have really dropped out of the race to sign Haaland. Recent reports have indicated that the 21-year-old Norwegian international is edging closer to a transfer to Manchester City.
So, it is crucial that the Blaugrana plan contingencies and Lewandowski would be an excellent Plan B in the scenario that they fail to sign Haaland.
