Robert Lewandowski is expected to join Barcelona from Bayern Munich in a deal of $50.4 million, according to numerous media outlets.
According to Bild, Kicker, and Sky Germany, the two clubs reached an agreement overnight on Friday, ending a dispute with the Polish attacker who has stated his desire to leave the Bavarian giants.
There is no doubt in my mind that my time at Bayern Munich has come to an end,” Lewandowski remarked in May.
Two-time FIFA men’s player of the year Robert Lewandowski has agreed to a four-year deal with Barcelona.
According to Catalan publication Sport, the striker is to arrive in Barcelona today (Saturday) to undergo a medical check and sign a four-year contract.
According to Mundo Deportivo, the Polish player will not be present at today’s introduction of the Bavarian team, but he will join the Spanish team for a tour of the United States from July 18-31.
A one-year extension to Lewandowski’s contract, which expires in the summer of 2023, was all that Bayern had given him, according to German media.
Both the Polish international and Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann were upset with their wages, as well as Nagelsmann’s tactical decisions.
Lewandowski, who joined Bayern in 2014, became the Bundesliga’s all-time leading scorer with 344 goals in 375 games.
He won the Bundesliga, the Champions League, the Club World Cup, and three German Cups during his eight seasons at Bayern Munich.
