La Liga chief insists Barcelona can’t sign Robert Lewandowski

Robert Lewandowski-Bayern Munich

Robert Lewandowski, after winning the Bundesliga, made a public statement that he would be willing to leave his current club Bayern Munich this summer before his contract expires. The said statement did not impress CEO Oliver Kahn and told him that it would lead him nowhere. 

The Striker is reportedly linked with a move to big clubs such as Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United.  

Barcelona is also chasing his signature, but La Liga president Javier Tebas said that a deal is not possible due to Barcelona’s current financial situation. 

Though Lewandowski is willing to rip £100,000 off his weekly wage to join Barca, Javier Tebas insists Barcelona’s financial problems currently rule them out of big-money signings. 

The chief said, “They know what they have to do – sell assets and earn more, this is what they have to do.”

‘They know perfectly well our economic control rules and their financial situation.’

“The rules are there to avoid major economic problems. I don’t know if they will sell De Jong, Pedri or Pepito Perez.”

According to Planet News, even though Barcelona are desperate to keep Pedri and Gavi and De Jong.
