Barcelona to make third bid for Bayern Munich's legend.

Although Robert Lewandowski's future is still uncertain this summer, Spanish powerhouse Barcelona is prepared to make a third effort to sign the star striker.

According to reports from the Polish media site Meczyki, Barcelona will submit their third offer for the second-highest Bundesliga goalscorer ever within the next 24 hours in an effort to get closer to the Bavarian valuation of the Polish hitman.

Lewandowski, 33, doesn't want to stay at the Allianz Arena past this summer, which has Barcelona approaching the issue with optimism and expecting to submit a third offer of €40 million. He will be 34 before the end of the current summer, but Barça is also reportedly included €10 million in add-ons, bringing the total bundled offer to €50 million.

However, Bayern made preparations for Lewandowski's departure when they signed Sadio Mané from Liverpool. The club also retains the services of Serge Gnabry, Leroy Sané, and Kingsley Coman. Given the players' desire to leave Bavaria, Barcelona must maintain control of the situation with Mané in the door.

Funds should be available to complete the transaction before the start of the 2022–23 La Liga season after earlier this evening's stunning news that Premier League heavyweights Chelsea have officially entered the hunt for Brazilian star Raphinha, a player Barcelona has previously showed interest in.
