An insight into the kind of financial package expected to be on the table for Robert Lewandowski at Barcelona has been provided on Sunday evening.
Links between Polish international Lewandowski and La Liga heavyweights Barca have of course been rampant for several weeks now.
This comes with the 33-year-old having made public his desire to seek pastures new this summer, on the back of a prolific stint in Germany with Bayern Munich.
Lewandowski: “My era at Bayern is over. I don’t see any possibility to continue playing for this club anymore” 🚨 #FCBayern
“Bayern’s a serious club and I believe they won’t keep me, I don’t want to play there anymore. A transfer is the best solution. I hope they don’t stop me”. pic.twitter.com/ieO3q0tEBO

The Camp Nou, meanwhile, is widely understood to be Lewandowski’s landing spot of choice, with Barca’s mutual interest in securing a deal meaning a transfer is viewed as altogether likely to come to fruition at some point over the coming months.
And now, as alluded to above, an insight into the financial terms likely to be on offer to the legendary hitman in Catalunya has been forthcoming online.
The info comes courtesy of Javi Miguel of Spanish outlet Diario AS, who points towards a wage cap being put in place at Barcelona moving forward.
Amid negotiations with the representatives of Liverpool star Mohamed Salah, the Blaugrana hierarchy are said to have made clear that they will no longer sanction contracts featuring wage packets which exceed 10 million euros net-per-year.
Lewandowski, as a result, is primed to take home a sum of nine million euro each season, should he ultimately go on to link up with Barca.
Va a ser muy complicado, por no decir imposible, ver a Salah de blaugrana. este verano pedia 17 millones limpios de ficha. en el Barça le dijeron que el tope en la nueva politica salarial eran 10 millones. Lewandowski cobrara 9. ningun fichaje sobrepasara esta cantidad nunca mas
