With the announcement of Robert Lewandowski’s much anticipated transfer from Bayern Munich
Robert Lewandowski has been spotted for the first time wearing a Barcelona jersey. The forward had always preferred Barcelona as his final destination, and after several weeks of waiting, Xavi Hernandez has finally secured his capture.
The 33-year-old Polish international has one year remaining on his contract with Bayern Munich and had earlier this summer expressed a wish to leave the team. Lewandowski can be seen approaching a camera in Barcelona’s newest uniform before looking at his badge and saying, “Hi, Cules,” in a video posted on the team’s social media pages on Tuesday night.

The club posted a statement on its website confirming the agreement, stating that the Pole has agreed to a four-year first contract worth £42.5 million. On Sunday, Lewandowski arrived in Miami after the club and the player reached a preliminary understanding the day before.
He got to know his new teammates at that time, and now that it has been officially confirmed, he will be allowed to participate in the club’s remaining preseason training in the United States.
I was speaking with Xavi, and I immediately knew what was on his mind and what his ideas were. My decision to move to Barcelona was simple because I’m the type of player who wants to play and win, and I believe that with Xavi, it’s extremely likely.
The agreement’s confirmation puts a stop to weeks of rumors regarding the Pole’s destiny. Lewandowski claimed earlier this summer in a speech that his relationship with Bayern Munich had caused something inside of him to “die.”
His earlier summer remark confirmed Bayern Munich supporters’ greatest fears that their star striker wanted to quit the team he joined after leaving Borussia Dortmund in 2014.
He claimed that “they [Bayern Munich] didn’t want to listen to me till the end” in a June interview with the Polish sports publication Sport Onet. “Something inside of me died.” I only want to get out of Bayern. The task is secondary to loyalty and respect, he continued.
