According to the information provided by reliable sources, Barcelona and Bayern Munich have come to an agreement about the transfer of Robert Lewandowski. The final contract for the Poland striker calls for a transfer fee of €45 million, with the possibility of €5 million in add-ons.
According to insiders, the news that Lewandowski has signed with Barcelona as a player will be made public over the course of the weekend.
Robert Lewandowski is a Polish professional footballer who currently serves as the captain of the Poland national team and plays as a striker for his club squad. Lewandowski is not just regarded as one of the greatest strikers of all time but also as one of the most successful players in the annals of Bundesliga history. He is recognized for his positioning, technique, and finishing. Over the course of his senior career, he has scored more than 600 goals for both club and country.
Lewandowski went to top-flight Lech Pozna after being the leading scorer in the third and second divisions of Polish football with Znicz Pruszków. He then helped the team win the 2009–10 Ekstraklasa by contributing to the team’s success. He moved to Borussia Dortmund in 2010, and during his time there he won a number of awards, including two straight Bundesliga titles and the accolade for the league’s leading goalscorer.
Additionally, in 2013, he participated with Dortmund in the championship game of the UEFA Champions League. Before the start of the 2014–15 season, Lewandowski came to an agreement to sign a free transfer with Dortmund’s opponents in the German Bundesliga, Bayern Munich. When he played for Bayern Munich, he went undefeated in the Bundesliga for the first eight seasons of his career.
Lewandowski had a crucial role in helping Bayern Munich win the UEFA Champions League in 2019–20, which was part of the club’s historic treble. He is the first player in history to win the European treble while being the top scorer in all three competitions, and he is one of just two players, along with Johan Cruyff, to do so. He is also the only player to do it as the sole top scorer.
Lewandowski was awarded both the Best FIFA Men’s Player Award (which he kept in 2021) and the UEFA Men’s Player of the Year Award in the same year, 2020. He is currently the third-highest goalscorer in the annals of the UEFA Champions League and has been named to the UEFA Team of the Year twice. Additionally, he has been named to the UEFA Champions League Squad of the Season four times. A record-setting five times, Lewandowski has been honored with the title of VDV Bundesliga Player of the Season.
He has scored more than 300 goals in the Bundesliga (the second-highest goalscorer of all time in Bundesliga, only behind Gerd Müller’s 365 Bundesliga goals), having reached the century mark quicker than any other foreign player, and he is the league’s all-time leading foreign goalscorer. He is also the all-time leading goalscorer in the Bundesliga. When he was playing for Bayern in 2015, he set four Guinness World Records when he scored five goals in less than nine minutes against VfL Wolfsburg.
This was the fastest by any player in the history of the Bundesliga as well as any major European football league, and he was recognized for it with four Guinness World Records. Furthermore, he has won the Bundesliga Top Scorer Award in seven different seasons, most notably in the 2020–21 Bundesliga season when he scored 41 goals in a single campaign, breaking Gerd Müller’s previous Bundesliga record of 40 goals, which was set in 1971–72.
In that season, he set the record for most goals scored in a single Bundesliga season. On the 30th of November 2021, he ended in second place in the Ballon d’Or competition, trailing Lionel Messi by by 33 points.
