One of the finest acquisitions of the current summer transfer window was the acquisition of Robert Lewandowski by Barcelona from Bayern Munich.
The Catalans had to overcome several obstacles, and it was not simple, but the Blaugrana managed to acquire the 33-year-old striker from the German powerhouses in a deal for €50 million, including add-ons.
The four-year contract for the Poland captain includes a salary of almost €9 million annually. Although the Catalans also have the option of ending his contract, it has been stated that the pay might fall in the remaining two seasons of his pact.
Lewandowski’s acquisition has undoubtedly increased enthusiasm among fans and inside the team. The center-forward, who is one of the best players of the modern period, will undoubtedly increase the glamour and attractiveness of La Liga.
And it appears that Real Madrid, Barcelona’s bitter rivals, have welcomed Lewandowski’s move to Camp Nou as well.
In fact, according to Gerard Romero’s report, Real Madrid president Florentino Perez congratulated Barcelona on bringing in Lewandowski from Bayern Munich.
While Barça successfully completed the signing of their primary objective this summer, Los Blancos were unable to sign Kylian Mbappe, who was their top transfer priority. However, they spent a lot of money to sign Aurelien Tchouameni.
After Real Madrid won La Liga with ease the previous season, Lewandowski’s arrival, along with those of Raphinha, Franck Kessie, and Ousmane Dembele, will position Barcelona for a serious push to the championship.
In addition, the competition between Lewandowski and Karim Benzema, perhaps the two finest attackers in the league right now, will be shown to the audience.
