Marca says Pini Zahavi, the player's agent, has been discussing this possibility with Barca president Joan Laporta for some time.
With the player there will be no problem to reach an agreement because everything is already negotiated. The problem is Bayern Munich who are not going to make it easy for their star player to leave the club.
For starters, all the directors and executives of the club have repeated time and again that they are willing to keep him for one more season if he does not want to extend his contract.
However, behind closed doors, the position is not so categorical. Barcelona already know that there is a minimum price that the German club will never go below: 50 million euros.
The Catalan club was not prepared to reach this figure. Their idea was to pay at most 40 million euros including variables. Bayern have no intention of selling the player for this amount.
