Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski set to complete transfer to Barcelona after months of uncertainty
At the end of last season, Lewandowski linked up with Poland during the international break and used a pre-match press conference to say his run with Bayern Munich had run its course.
The player had set his sights on a movement towards Barcelonabut with the Spanish club struggling to fund a serious offer, Lewandowski’s future remained uncertain.
Last week, the Pole – who still has a year on his contract with Bayern – was forced to report for training as Julian Nagelsmann’s side kicked off pre-season preparations.
At the same time, Barcelona eased some of their financial pressures and stepped up their transfer activities by completing the signing of Raphinha from Leeds United.
According to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, Lewandowski is also set to join the Catalan giants.
The Pole is set to complete his move over the weekend after the two clubs reportedly agreed a £42m fee.
Romano also revealed that Lewandowski snubbed both chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain, claiming the forward was not interested in talks with those clubs.
The 33-year-old has spent the last eight seasons at the Allianz Arena where he scored 344 goals in 375 appearances for Bayern.
Lewandowski helped the club win eight consecutive Bundesliga titles, eight domestic cups, a Champions League, a UEFA Super Cup and a FIFA Club World Cup.
The striker is no stranger to controversial transfers, having moved to arch-rivals Bayern Borussia Dortmund.
Lewandowski spent four seasons at the club, where he scored 103 goals in 187 appearances and helped Jurgen Klopp’s side win two Bundesliga titles.
