The 33-year-old Poland international signed a three-year contract with the option of an additional year, and Barcelona reached an agreement with Bayern Munich over an initial £38 million sale of him.
Lewandowski, who won eight Bundesliga championships in as many seasons with Bayern and the Champions League in 2020, became Barcelona’s fourth summer acquisition.
However, Robert Lewandowski, a striker for FC Barcelona and a former star of Bayern Munich, wanted to clear the air because a lot of things had been said about him since his move.
Although there had been some politics in the past, Lewandowski told ESPN that he was unable to speak poorly of his teammates or the club. However, he did praise the work he had done during his eight years with Bayern Munich. Every season I get bigger, and I know it will get harder every year to choose to move somewhere else. Since I already knew what I did and was comfortable in my surroundings at Bayern Munich, it was still quite tough for me to decide to move to Barcelona. However, I was always willing to try something new.
Lewandowski wanted it to be known that neither the team nor his teammates had anything to do with his decision to leave and that it was simply time for him to try something new.
When I learned that Barcelona was interested in signing me, it seemed like the ideal time to move to Barcelona and join La Liga. I made the decision to move to Barcelona because I am confident that I can continue to play at a high level for a few more years. Lewandowski said that he is delighted to be at his new club.
Lewandowski reportedly gave a bottle of Noble Champagne Armand de Brignac to each person as a gift when he left Bayern Munich’s facilities for the last time earlier today. The gift box featured his signature and images from his time at Bayern.
