Lewandowski promises to help Barca ‘return to the top’
Polish striker Robert Lewandowski said on Monday he was raring to go at new club Barcelona and determined to help them “return to the top and win as many titles as possible”.
Barcelona’s last domestic title was in 2019 and their last Champions League trophy in 2015.
On Saturday, Bayern Munich announced that they had reached an agreement with Barcelona for Lewandowski after two months of endless negotiations between the clubs.
The two-time Fifa men’s player of the year has reportedly agreed a four-year deal worth €50 million, including five million in potential add-ons.
He is the club’s fourth summer transfer after Ivory Coast midfielder Franck Kessie from AC Milan and Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen on a free transfer, and Brazil winger Raphinha, recruited for €70 million from Leeds.
The club has also extended the contract of French winger Ousmane Dembele, who is committed until 2024.
A very generous transfer window for a club which suffered from an abysmal debt, exceeding one billion euros in the long term, a few months ago.
