Pep Guardiola has claimed Robert Lewandowski would be a good fit at Barcelona as the striker continues to push for a move from Bayern Munich.

Lewandowski has repeatedly expressed his desire to leave the German giants this summer, most recently to OnetSport: “Something died inside me, I want to leave FC Bayern to have more emotions in my life.

“Loyalty and respect are more important than work. The best way is to find a solution together.”

While Chelsea have been linked with a move for the 33-year-old, with Barcelona favorites to sign, but it’s unclear if the La Liga club have the financial clout to sign the Poland captain, who has one year left on his contract.

However, should Lewandowski make the move, former Barcelona coach Guardiola is convinced he would be a success, having previously coached the player for three seasons at Bayern.

The Manchester City manager told Sport: “I have no idea to be honest but would he be a good fit?

“We are talking about Lewandowski. He would adapt perfectly anywhere.

“But I don’t know if Barcelona can sign him given his financial situation or if Bayern will let him go.”

Barcelona have reportedly agreed terms with Lewandowski and are offering Bayern €25m (£21.3m) to land their star striker, but Julian Nagelsmann’s side plan to reject all offers for the player, who has played 344 games in 375 games goals scored club.

Chelsea’s pursuit of Lewandowski will depend on how much money new owner Todd Boehy can provide Thomas Tuchel in the summer, although any deal for a new striker will depend on Romelu Lukaku being signed to sign the club’s record.

The Belgian is keen to return to Inter Milan but the terms of his transfer will take time given his £325,000-a-week wages.
