Barcelona is in the final stage to sign Robert Lewandowski from Bayern. Lewandowski will fly to Spain on Saturday for a medical before signing a three-year contract. The reported signing fee is set for £42.5m plus bonuses. He will join his new side for the pre-season tour.

“I didn’t have much time to prepare for it. It all went very quickly to say goodbye to everyone!” Lewandowski told after agreeing to his move. “I will fly soon but after the training camp, I will come back and say goodbye properly and organize a few things. I said goodbye to the boys on the field today, I wasn’t worried about an injury in training. Something can happen to me at home. I wanted to keep fit and trained with the boys again.”

Barcelona to sign Lewandowski

Despite many offers from teams like Chelsea or PSG Lewandowski only wanted to join Barcelona. Up until now, the German champions had insisted Lewandowski was not for sale. However, after many turnovers, it’s finally decided where the Polish striker will play this season.

Barcelona gets their project leader

Lewandowski’s arrival will help Barcelona in their attacking department massively. Xavi desperately wanted a world-class striker who can guarantee 30 or more goals a season. Lewandowski has been with Bayern since 2014 and has scored 344 goals for the club in 375 appearances across all competitions. During his time at Bayern Lewandowski bagged eight Bundesliga titles in the last eight seasons, as well as three German Cups. The Polish striker has just been crowned the league’s top scorer for the fifth season in a row after netting 35 goals in 34 Bundesliga games in 2021/22.

Lewandowski is Barcelona’s fourth signing this summer. The club is also looking to seal the deal with Jules Koundé from Sevilla. Bernardo Silva’s name is also being discussed. Lewandowski despite being 33 years of age, remains one of the most fearsome frontmen on the planet. Since Lewandowski’s debut, only Messi and Ronaldo scored more goals than him in Europe’s top five leagues. It will be interesting to see how he leads Xavi’s project.
