The Catalan outfit have long been pursuing a top-class number nine to replace the goals that Lionel Messi took with him to Paris Saint-Germain and now they have their man.
Lewandowski, 33, is one of the most lethal marksmen in European football. A Polish international with 76 goals in 132 caps for his country, he scored 344 goals in 375 games with Bayern.
Lewandowski won everything there is to win in Bavaria and arrives at Barcelona with the ambition of writing one final chapter in what’s been an illustrious career. His contract runs to 2025.
Barcelona finished 13 points behind their great rivals Real Madrid in La Liga last season and ended the campaign trophy-less. Xavi Hernandez will be expected to cut that gap in 2022/23.
Because his squad has been strengthened significantly. As well as Lewandowski, Barcelona have also recruited Franck Kessie, Andreas Christensen, Raphinha and Ousmane Dembele.
Lewandowski arrived in Fort Lauderdale in Florida to join up with his new Barcelona teammates for their pre-season tour of the United States. The club released footage of him being welcomed to the club by his new colleagues during a squad dinner.
