Barcelona confirm signing Lewandowski from Bayern


Barcelona have confirmed the signing of Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich on a four-year contract worth 50 million euros.

The Poland captain, 33, had one year left on his contract with the German champions but stated his intention to leave, saying, “My story with Bayern is over.”

Lewandowski is currently in Miami with his new teammates as part of Barcelona’s four-match tour of the United States.

“I’m finally here. I’m delighted to be at Barca,” Lewandowski said.

“The last few days have been very long, but the deal is done and now I can focus on a new chapter and challenge in my life.

“I’ve always wanted to play in La Liga and for the big clubs.

“I’m here to help Barca get back to the top and win as many titles as possible.”

Barcelona have inserted 500m euros buyout clause in his contract.

Lewandowski joined Bayern on a free transfer in 2014 after his departure from Borussia Dortmund. He scored 344 times in 374 games and won several titles with Bayern.

Lewandowski is Barcelona’s fourth signing of the summer, following the arrival of Brazil winger Raphinha from Leeds United in a deal worth up to £55 million, as well as Ivory Coast midfielder Franck Kessie and Denmark defender Andreas Christensen on free transfers after their contracts with AC Milan and Chelsea expired.
