Paris Saint-Germain wanted Lewandowski and were ready to sell Neymar Jr to fund move.
Without a doubt, Robert Lewandowski has found success right away at Barcelona.
The Polish striker has surpassed all expectations since joining Barcelona, scoring 11 goals in eight games overall. However, it has been made known that another club that is firmly entrenched and among the elite in Europe was seriously considering signing him.
According to the most recent information from French daily Le Journal du Dimanche, as reported by Mundo Deportivo, Paris Saint-Germain was interested in signing Lewandowski because they wanted to team him up with Kylian Mbappe as their ideal dream team.
The Ligue 1 powerhouses were allegedly willing to trade Neymar in order to pay for the transfer of the former Bayern Munich sensation.
The strategy was to switch to a 4-4-2 formation with Mbappe and Lewandowski at the head of their attack.

However, the 34-year-old was so determined to join Xavi’s team and play in Spain that many Bayern Munich supporters think he ruined his connection with the team.
Neymar, who was strongly rumored to be leaving this summer, decided to remain at Parc des Princes.
With Lewandowski dominating at Barcelona up until this moment, it is reasonable to assume that everyone came out on top in the end.
The Poland captain is vying with Erling Haaland of Manchester City for the title of most effective striker in the world and is the early favorite to win the Pichichi Trophy.
Neymar is also arguably the best player in the world right now and is poised to have his best season while wearing a PSG jersey.
