Barcelona have some financial difficulties to contend with and could have to sell players like Frenkie de Jong this summer, however the Catalan giants still plan to bring players in.

Xavi said: “Financial situation? (Juan) Laporta (club President) told me we’ll be able to reinforce the team, there’s confidence.”

On the other hand, La Liga president Javier Tebas claims the club wouldn’t be able to afford Lewandowski.

He said: “The numbers are very easy, you have over €500m losses in the last two years, you have to recover that to sign players.”

However reports claim that Lewandowski is willing to take a £100,000-a-week pay cut in order to make the move possible.

He could have already played his final game in a Bayern shirt as he ended his stay lifting an eighth consecutive Bundesliga title at the Bavarian club and his tenth overall after winning two at Borussia Dortmund.

Barca have one more game of the season remaining, against Villareal at the Nou Camp on Sunday, and will finish second regardless of the result.
