According to the most recent reports, Barcelona and Bayern Munich have finally reached an agreement on a transfer deal for Robert Lewandowski after months of rumors, discussion, and speculation.
Lewandowski, who moved to Munich from Borussia Dortmund in 2014, has an amazing 238 goals in 253 games. At Bayern, he has won eight league championships, one Champions League trophy, and 41 goals in 2020–21 breaking the Bundesliga scoring record.
However, Lewandowski refused to discuss a prospective transfer to any other team, and it now seems as though he has secured his desired move to Camp Nou.
The German juggernauts, who had previously rejected three offers, began to warm up to the transaction during the past few days, and they ultimately decided to accept Barça’s most recent offer.
According to reports, the agreement is for €50 million, including add-ons, and Lewandowski refused to deal with Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain, both of which were interested in signing the 33-year-old Poland captain.
Furthermore, it is asserted that the €50 million deal between the clubs includes a split of €45 + €5 million in fixed and variable payments.
The striker and Barça had mutually agreed upon personal conditions months prior, but Bayern Munich had not reached an agreement due to their insistence that their star goal scorer was not for sale.
The 33-year-old striker has been the target of Barcelona’s attention for several months, and the Poland captain has been eager to take on a new challenge in his career.
This weekend, Robert Lewandowski will finally transfer to Barcelona and will sign a three-year contract with Barcelona.
Despite their alleged financial difficulties, Lewandowski’s arrival will add to a busy summer of recruitment for Xavi’s team. Raphinha, a Brazilian winger who cost Leeds €58 million, joined Franck Kessié and Andreas Christensen, two players whose contracts at Milan and Chelsea, respectively, had expired.
