Lewandowski Finally Exits Bayern Munich for Barcelona

In what seemed like a move that was being upheld by the Bavarians, the Polish striker Robert Lewandowski finally is able to move to Barcelona.

The transfer fee looks to be about €45m + €5m add-ons.

In what looked like a deal that could have been prevented due to Barcelona’s financial issues, or because Bayern wanted to keep their superstar. The deal is finally done and completed.

After countless success in Germany, and in European competition, as the Bavarians won the Champions League in 2020. Lewandowski is able to move on from the club he spent most of his career, and take on a new challenge under Xavi in Spain.

The Polish striker was clearly unhappy in Munich and made it clear to the public that he wanted to leave once the past season ended. At that point it was up the the management at Bayern to allow their star player to leave.

Robert Lewandowski clearly felt that it was time for a career change, as his time in Germany was filled with titles, accomplishments and accolades. During his time in Germany, he has won eight Bundesliga titles, three DFB Pokal, and the Champions league.

Additionally, during his time in Germany, he has also become the second highest Bundesliga scorer (Dortmund and Bayern), with a total of 312 goals. Only behind Gerd Muller with 365 goals. At age 33 and with no signs of slowing, it looks like Lewandowski would have been destined to break that record had he decided to stay in Munich.

The superstar striker looks to be the main piece that Xavi uses to rebuild his Barcelona squad during the next few seasons. Meanwhile it can almost be a given that Lewandowski will continue to score many goals as he already proven he can do.
