According to a report from Gerard Romero, Fiorentino Perez, the president of Real Madrid, praised Barcelona for acquiring Robert Lewandowski (via Barca Universal). According to reports, the Real Madrid president congratulated his Catalan colleague Joan Laporta on signing the Polish goal machine.
Lewandowski’s signing can increase interest in La Liga, therefore the Madrid manager is allegedly glad to have such a quality player join their league. Over the past ten years, the Pole has solidified his position as one of the world’s top attackers.
Perez, who just seen Real Madrid triumph against Barcelona to win the La Liga championship and the Champions League trophy, will be happy to see them arrive. The former Bayern Munich striker may provide the rivalry that both teams require to drive one another to even greater heights.
With Barcelona having greatly strengthened this summer, fans will now be anticipating the start of the La Liga season with excitement. In an effort to challenge the dominance of the Madridistas, the Catalans will also welcome Raphinha, Andreas Christensen, Franck Kessie, and the re-signed Ousmane Dembele.
Perez, though, will embrace the challenge and will be optimistic that his players can contain the Polish striker, whose acquisition they had previously considered. The true winners, though, will be La Liga supporters, who will get to see the two most effective strikers in the world, Robert Lewandowski and Karim Benzema.
Important transfers help Real Madrid and Barcelona get ready for the upcoming campaign.
For the friendly El Clasico that will take place at the Allegiant Stadium on Sunday, both Spanish titans are presently putting the finishing touches on their preparations. However, they both performed very differently throughout the summer transfer window.
Even before working on deals for Robert Lewandowski and Raphinha, the Catalan giants have already gained four senior players on free transfers. The Madrid team’s performance in the market has been less than stellar as they missed out on a potential free move for Kylian Mbappe. However, they didn’t falter, stealing Antonio Rudiger from Chelsea on the cheap while outbidding rival clubs for Aurelien Tchouameni. Even though Barca may have made more high-caliber acquisitions, they will need to perform well this year to compete with Los Blancos in Spain. The Catalan team will be expected to do well in the Champions League under Xavi Hernandez’s rebuild, even though they might not win it outright.
