FC Barcelona and Bayern Munich have arrived at an agreement for the transfer of Robert Lewandowski for a total of €45 million + €5 million in variables”, the club wrote on their official website. “The player will sign a contract with the Club for the next four seasons. The buyout clause has been set at €500 million.”
“The final agreement comes three days after the Club announced an agreement in principle for the Polish striker, which came while the team was flying to the United States”, they added. “Lewandowski arrived in Miami on Sunday and met his new teammates. The new Barça striker also passed his medical.”
Lewa becomes fourth signing
Despite financial issues, Barcelona continue to strengthen Xavi’s hand, with Lewandowski becoming the fourth addition of the summer.
Andreas Christensen and Franck Kessie have already joined the club as free agents from Chelsea and AC Milan respectively, while Raphinha also arrived from Leeds United despite a bidding war with Chelsea for his services.
The spending is not set to stop there either, with Chelsea duo Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso in their crosshairs while they once again rival Thomas Tuchel’s side for another signing in the form of Jules Kounde, though at present they look more likely to miss out on the Sevilla man.
Should Frenkie de Jong depart, as he is expected to, they could also make a move for Manchester City man Bernardo Silva, who ‘dreams’ of playing for the Blaugrana.
