SWANSEA were "tricked" into giving Lukasz Fabianski a better deal in 2015 after the club received a fake offer from Bayer Leverkusen, according to an incredible report.
Football Leaks claim agency Spielerrat demanded a wage hike for the goalkeeper in May 2015, raking in a £2.2million fee from the resulting deal.

Spielerrat are said to have put pressure on the Swans through e-mail in the latest in a long line of Football Leaks allegations.
The e-mail was claimed to have been written on behalf of Jonas Boldt – the Bayer Leverkusen sporting director – expressing an interest in Fabianski to replace sought-after Bernd Leno.
Bayer managing director of sport, Rudi Voller, has now claimed a "number of goalkeepers were being considered as possible candidates to replace Bernd Leno" at the time.
Fabianski had been at Swansea for one season – where he had impressed the club with his form.
