BAYERN MUNICH are demanding a fee of £52million to sell Robert Lewandowski, according to reports.

Lewandowski, 33, has been vocal about his desire to leave the German Champions this summer as he enters the final year of his contract with them.

The most heavily linked club to the Polish striker is Barcelona, while Chelsea and Manchester United among others have also seen their names brought up over a possible transfer.

However, Sky Sports have reported Bayern want £52million to allow him to leave.

This will doubtless come as a massive blow to cash-strapped Barcelona, who are trying to improve their squad on a tight budget by looking for cheap transfer fees and free agents.

The Spanish giants have debts of over half a billion Euros, meaning they are desperate to not pile on extra costs.

This factor has contributed to their willingness to allow midfielder Frenkie de Jong to leave for Manchester United, who are reportedly close to agreeing a £69million deal for the Dutchman.

The £52million price tag is also a massive increase from previous reports which suggested Lewandowski would be available for a transfer at just £34million.

Lewandowski scored 50 goals in 46 games last season and has seemed to only get better with age.

While movement on his departure remains at a slow pace, the Bavarians have wasted no time in bringing in his replacement in the form of ex-Liverpool star Sadio Mane.

The Senegal ace joined Bayern earlier this month in a deal worth £35million.

They have also bolstered their midfield with the £21million acquisition of Ryan Gravenberch, who was the subject of an 11th hour attempt from new Man United boss Erik ten Hag to bring to Old Trafford.
