According to rumours coming out of Spain, Robert Lewandowski, the number nine player for Bayern Munich, is expected to finalize his eagerly awaited transfer to FC Barcelona this weekend.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is currently Barcelona’s first-choice attacker. In the summer transfer market, the Spanish club has been ambitious. According to speculations from the Spanish media, FC Barcelona’s star forward Robert Lewandowski is expected to sign a contract over the weekend. Lewandowski, who has scored 344 goals for Bayern, is arguably one of the best strikers of his generation. He has been pushing for a transfer away from Bayern and has stuck to his stance that he does not want to play for the German team any longer. After spending eight years with the club, it was earlier in 2023 announced that he was seeking a new challenge.

In order to continue their push to become a dominant force in European football, FC Barcelona has been seeking a marquee acquisition. The team has struggled to create an impact against top-tier competition in Europe for years, especially in the major games. The Spanish Giants were demoted to the Europa League in 2021 after a disastrous season, but they have since clawed their way back into the big leagues by finishing second in LaLiga. In the current transfer window, Barcelona president Joan Laporta, who took over the club during its financial crisis, has been aggressive, adding players like Frank Kessie, Raphinha, and Andreas Christensen, among others. While Kessie and Christensen arrived on a free transfer, it is anticipated that Barcelona will pay up to 50 million euros plus add-ons for Lewandowski, and that the Raphinha move will cost at least that much. Lewandowski enters the game with a reputation as one of the most potent goal scorers in the annals of contemporary sport. The 33-year-old is anticipated to provide Barcelona with a direct goal scoring threat in addition to players who operate on the flanks like Ansu Fati, Ousmane Dembele, and others, even if he may not be in his prime anymore. There would be issues with the signing on its own. Lewandowski may present issues for Barcelona given their high pay costs, and if they are unable to transfer Frenkie de Jong to Manchester United, they may have trouble signing new players. —- ENDS —-
