Barca agree £42.5m deal to sign Bayern striker

According to Fabrizio Romano, Barcelona have agreed a deal to sign Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich in a three-year contract, which an option for a further 12 months. Romano claims Barca have accepted to pay £42.5m (€50m) for the Poland striker this summer transfer window.

 

However, the Poland international will undergo his medical in Spain this weekend according to reports. Lewandowski had just one year remaining on his Bayern contract and had told the club he would not renew his deal.

Furthermore, Lewandowski’s exit would help Bayern Munich to finance the signing of Juventus defender De Ligt this summer, who have a release clause of around €80m (£67.7m), according to The Mirror.

 

Liverpool in talks to sign Brazilian Talent

The future of Brazilian international, Antony, is up in the air and once again, he is on the radar of Liverpool.

The 22-year-old is mainly linked with Manchester United as last term, he impressed big time under the management of new Old Trafford boss, Erik ten Hag.

 

However, as per a recent report covered by renowned journalist, Jorge Nicola on Yahoo, Liverpool have strongly moved in and continue to talk to the Eredivisie side to sign the Selecao attacker.

 

Antony joined the Netherlands giants in 2020 from Sao Paulo and according to Nicola, the South American side are entitled to receive 20% of the fee from the future sale of the player.

Therefore, the Dutch champions intend to get a mammoth amount to offload their prized asset. As per The Telegraph, Ajax are demanding a fee of around £70-£80million for the Samba star, whose contract will expire in 2025.

 

Antony won the Eredivisie title with Ajax last term and in all competitions, he found the net 12 times and also provided 10 assists under Ten Hag?

 

The asking price has so far proved to be prohibitive for Man United and that might also be the case for Liverpool.

They recently signed a new deal with first-choice right winger, Mohamed Salah, and in my view, it is highly unlikely that the Reds will splash £70-£80million to sign Antony, who predominantly plays on the right flank.

Still, Anfield boss, Jurgen Klopp, does need to lure a versatile winger as he lacks depth in the wide offensive areas.
