Deportivo Mundo claimed that the report is unverifiable as Barca though keen on securing the services of the 33-year-old polish striker, are yet to make an official offer to Bavarian.
Furtherance in its report, Mundo Deportivo stated that the Catalans are aware that it will be difficult to snapped up the player to Catalunya to join the team in its US preseason tour.
Both President Joan Laporta and Barcelona sporting director, Mateu Alemany, know it will be difficult to get Lewandowski having realised that the Bavarian do not have a replacement for their star striker should they sell him, so they have decided to turn towards Tottenham Harry Kane which also will not be an easy task.
However, Lewandowski appeared in his first training session for the Bavarian yesterday but the body language of the striker who turns 34 next month, spoke volume of his intention to go under Xavi Hernandez’s tutelage at Camp Nou.
Bild reported that “Lewandowski arrived a few minutes late at the meeting point and was the last to appear on the pitch.’
“Reluctantly, he was also the last to start all the warm-up and training exercises, without finishing them normally. His relationship with his companions is no longer the same.
“In general he has not liked that he wants to leave and there is coldness. He only talked to Goretzka and made some jokes with Musiala,” Bild stated.
