Robert Lewandowski is now officially a Barcelona player BARCELONA OFFICIAL WEBSITE

It was planned to present Robert Lewandowski, 33, in society this Monday in Miami, where Barcelona is doing a tour -Wednesday at 2:00 he plays against Inter Miami-, but the last fringes in the contract remained to be polished, also the signatures, and the club delayed the act. It will be held on Wednesday (6:00 p.m.) because the Barça entity has already made the signing official. “An agreement has been reached with Bayern Munich for the transfer of the player for a total of 45 million euros plus five in variables,” says the official statement from the culé. The Polish striker signs for four seasons and has a termination clause of 500 million euros.

Lewandowski arrived in Miami on Sunday to join the Barcelona expedition, received by all with enthusiasm because he is a footballer who guarantees goals, the Golden Shoe in the last two European editions and the author of 344 goals in 375 games with the Bayern shirt.

“It is the most important signing at the media level. He comes with great enthusiasm and a lot of work. We will try to help him and show him what he has shown in these years, ”explained captain Busquets. “Barcelona has incredible potential. Now he has made some great signings and the club is on the right track to get back to the top. My goal is to help the team recover and win titles,” Lewandowski agreed in an interview with the German newspaper Bild. And he added: “I feel very strong physically and mentally, and Barcelona have seen it the same way. My goal is to play at the highest level for many more years.” Although for now he will have to wait.

As much as the attacker is already with the group at the Fort Lauderdale complex in Miami, he was unable to train in Monday’s open session – the physical trainers advised a conditioning regimen, with treadmill work in the gym and later some exercises in a annexed field-, he will not play the game against Inter Miami either and, presumably, he will be able to step on the grass on Thursday, already in Las Vegas. Before, yes, he will be presented. A strange case for doing it away from Barcelona, ​​but not unique because in 2018, in Portland, the club presented the Brazilian winger Malcom, who arrived from the French Girondins for 41 million euros.

Lewandowski costs 45 plus five and arrives to enlarge the Barça forward, since he has Aubameyang, Raphinha, Ansu Fati, Dembélé, Ferran Torres and Memphis, who is looking for a team due to overbooking. “He is the striker we wanted”, they admit from the Camp Nou offices; “Now the defenders are missing.” And that happens through Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso (Chelsea), also through Koundé (Seville), with whom Barça already has an agreement in the absence of sealing them with the clubs.
