You cannot buy a Robert Lewandowski shirt from Barcelona – they have run out of ‘W’ letters.
The official club store of Barcelona is now unable to sell Robert Lewandowski jerseys because they are out of the letter “W.” Watch a club staffer describe the problem in the video below.
Lewandowski, the Blaugrana’s fourth summer acquisition, moved from Bayern Munich for £42 million over night.
Even if Memphis Depay, the current holder of the number nine jersey, is unable to find a transfer elsewhere, it is anticipated that he would take Memphis’ position.
But you’re out of luck if you want to buy one. Due to a lack of letters, Lewandowski shirts are not sold at the megastore outside of Camp Nou.
A guy at the checkout firmly refused a fan’s request to buy a jersey with the forward’s name on the back.
Lewandowski says, “Why can’t we purchase jerseys with him?” and is answered, “Because we don’t have the letter W and because he has two in his name, we have ran out.”
Considering that Martin Braithwaite is the only other Barcelona player with a name beginning with a “W,” and given his low status in the team, it seems likely that Lewandowski is to blame for the deficiency.
After asking to leave Bayern in recent weeks, the 33-year-old has linked up with his new colleagues in Miami as part of Barcelona’s preseason trip.
He appeared to want to be anywhere else but was compelled to show up for Bayern training last week.
Lewandowski declared in May that his time at the Bundesliga powerhouse was “finished” while still under one year of his contract.
The international from Poland is eager to begin and is looking forward to a fresh challenge in La Liga.
I’m finally here,” he declared on the official website of Barcelona. Being at Barcelona makes me happy. The previous few days have been extremely long, but now that the deal is closed, I can concentrate on a brand-new challenge and chapter in my life.
“I’ve always wanted to play for the major teams and in La Liga. I’m here to assist Barca win as many championships and return to the top as possible.
Manager Xavi has also signed Andreas Christensen, Franck Kessie, and Raphinha to his team in addition to Lewandowski.
The team is still negotiating with Sevilla’s Jules Kounde and Manchester City’s Bernardo Silva, among other players.
