Barcelona director, Mateu Alemany has denied that the Catalan giants recently met with the agent of Robert Lewandowski to discuss a move to Camp Nou this summer.

The Poland international’s future at Bayern Munich continues to be called into question, with his current agreement at Allianz Arena due to expire in June 2023.

Bayern is believed to be open to selling Lewandowski this summer if he does not sign an extension, as they are fearful of losing him on a free transfer at the end of next season.

Barcelona has been strongly linked with the experienced striker, and it has been claimed that the La Liga club has already met with his agent, Pini Zahavi to discuss a switch this summer.

However, when questioned on the recent speculation, Alemany insisted that his club had not held a meeting with the Bayern forward’s representative.

“There was no meeting with Lewandowski’s agent. Also, I don’t like to speak about the negotiations process – it’s something private. We don’t like to discuss players who are under contract with other clubs,” Alemany told Movistar.

The 33-year-old has again been in strong form at club level during the 2021-22 campaign, finding the back of the net on 49 occasions in 44 appearances, in addition to contributing six assists.

Lewandowski recently suggested that he would be open to leaving Bayern in the upcoming market, with the Bundesliga giants looking for a fee in the region of £33m.

Manchester United has also been strongly linked with the forward, as the Red Devils prepare to bring at least one new attacker to Old Trafford in the upcoming market.
