Bayern-Barca deal for Lewandowski

The Barca wanted Lewandowski. Lewandowski he wanted to leave Munich to go to Barcelona. There were only two elements missing from the equation: that Bayern let him go and that the Barça club find a salary margin to hire him. The first point is unlocked, since the Bavarian team has accepted his transfer.

The Polish striker, who August will be 34already in April communicated its decision to the Bavarian CEO, Oliver Kahn. The winner of ‘The Best’ had his contract next year, so the German champion was set to sell his franchise player in June or let him go for free. The goalscorer rowed in favor, not only making it clear that he was going to leave Munich after eight seasons but also that his only destination would be the Camp Nou, thus avoiding an auction which would have further triggered the price. Finally, as Mundo Deportivo move forward, Barca will pay 45 million plus 5 in variables and sign a three-year deal plus an optional fourth.

The striker will become Barça’s fourth signing, after Kessié, Christensen and Rafinha, in addition to Paul Tower (which in principle will have a file of the subsidiary) and the Dembele transfer. Xavi hopes to have him under his command during the US tour, so he can play the classic debut against Madrid on July 24.
