Barcelona president Laporta coy on Lewandowski pursuit: It's flattering

Barcelona president Joan Laporta is coy over their pursuit of Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski.

Laporta acknowledged that Bayern Munich are not making it easy for him and thanked the Pole for making his desire to wear the Blaugrana shirt clear.

"Lewandowski is a Bayern player and I prefer to remain reserved on this. We thank him for wanting to come to Barcelona and we are very flattered," Laporta said.

Laporta also commented on Ousmane Dembele's situation. The president explained that the offer presented to him by the club to renew his contract is still valid.

"If he accepts our financial offer, he will stay," Laporta said. "We haven't set time limits for anything."
