Lewandowski in Madrid, a crazy exchange in the pipeline

Robert Lewandowski used as a bargaining chip for the transfer of a teammate?

FC Barcelona aspires to keep João Félix, the Portuguese left winger on loan from Atlético Madrid without a purchase option. Deco, the club's sporting director, has clearly expressed his desire to negotiate a new deal with the Colchoneros for the player, whose value is estimated at 40 million euros on Transfermarkt.

However, Barça's dream clashes with financial reality. The Catalan club does not have the necessary means to finance a transfer of this scale. The reigning Spanish champion's preferred fallback solution would therefore be a new loan from João Félix.

Atlético Madrid is not in favor of this option. But the Spanish capital club are aware that the player will not be well received by their supporters if he returns. To facilitate an agreement with Barça, Madrid leaders would nevertheless be willing to consider an exchange, according to journalist Rubén Uría.

The idea of ​​the Rojiblancos? Reproduce with Robert Lewandowski the operation carried out with Luis Suarez. In 2020, Barça released the Uruguayan striker to allow him to join the Madrid club for free.

The future of João Félix therefore remains uncertain. Barça wants to keep him, but will have to find common ground with the Matelassiers. A swap could be the solution, but it remains to be seen whether the two clubs will be able to agree on the players involved.
