BARCELONA have confirmed they have made an offer for Robert Lewandowski and are waiting for a response from Bayern Munich.
The 33-year-old striker has entered the final year of his contract at the Bundesliga side and has declared that he will not sign an extension.
The Polish star wants to leave the Allianz Arena for a new challenge after firing 238 goals in 253 top-flight matches.
Lewandowski appears to have his heart set on a move to Barcelona.
And he is believed to have already discussed and agreed personal terms with the LaLiga giants.
Now the only thing left is for the two clubs to settle on a transfer fee.
Barca president Joan Laporta confirmed that they have made a £34million bid for Lewandowski.

Now he says it is just a waiting game as they have not yet heard back from Bayern.
Laporta said: “We absolutely respect Bayern.
“You know we have made an offer for the player and that we are waiting for a response, and we believe it will be positive.”
Barcelona are still in the middle of a financial mess and must balance the books before the window closes.

But they recently sold 10 per cent of their TV rights to American investment firm Sixth Street Partners in a deal worth around £178m.
Discussing his future back in May, Lewandowski said: “My story with Bayern has come to an end, I cannot imagine further good cooperation.
