Watch: Cameron Smith delayed interview to sign autographs for young fans
Robert Lewandowski is ending his long tenure at Bayern Munich with a move to Barcelona, a move that sent the footballing world into a frenzy.
There has arguably been no striker or goalscorer in the world as dominant as Robert Lewandowski in recent years. In charge of Bayern Munich’s attack, he was a force to be reckoned with in virtually every Bundesliga game, cup game and more.
And now Barcelona fans will be hoping the same for them as they strengthen the squad roster ahead of another La Liga campaign.
On Friday, Fabrizio Romano confirmed that 34-year-old Lewandowski will move to Barca for a fee of $45m which the club eventually agreed with Bayern Munich.
Transfer of Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona: football fans react
It was undoubtedly a stunning decision that sent shockwaves through the footballing world, whether it was Barcelona fans celebrating and promoting their team for the upcoming season or Bayern fans showing their appreciation for everything Lewandowski has done for the club.
Lewandowski’s move comes shortly after the club also agreed a transfer fee for Raphinha, making Barca look like one of the most formidable clubs on the planet on paper.
That said, this move doesn’t come without a little trepidation. Lewandowski, as mentioned, is 34 and could be on the verge of declining. The good news, however, is that the club have plenty of other strong (and young) attacking pieces around them that should keep them scoring goals in La Liga.
