Bayern Munich Striker Robert Lewandowski Has Sights Set on Barcelona Move
Despite Barcelona and Lewandowski having an agreement, Bayern may stand in the way of any move. The Polish striker is contracted to the German giants for another year and with Barcelona’s recent debt issues, they may find it difficult to get together an acceptable fee. Bayern are adamant that Lewandowski will play for them until the end of his contract, which could present quite a large stumbling block for both Barcelona and Lewandowski.
It is clear to see why Barcelona are eager to get this deal done. Robert Lewandowski is one of Europe’s most prolific and talented strikers. Barcelona notably struggled goals wise this season with their joint top-scorers being Memphis Depay and Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang with 13 goals each. As Barcelona look to reclaim La Liga and Champions League glory, they know a top-notch striker could be the difference between winning the title and going home disappointed.
As far as top-notch strikers go, there are few better than Robert Lewandowski. Lewandowski has seven Bundesliga top scorer titles to his name, back-to-back European Golden Shoe awards, and a Ballon d’Or Striker of the Year award to his name. In addition to multiple awards, Lewandowski has an amazing goalscoring rate of 540 goals in 745 career games, for Bayern Munich alone he boasts a record of 344 goals in 375 games, which is almost one goal per game. Barcelona will be hoping to bring this level of goalscoring to the team as they aim to return to the top of Spanish and European football.
