Gonzalo Higuaín was surprised when he learned that Barca paid around 50 million euros for the Polish striker
The Argentine will be a Barcelona rival this Tuesday as one of Inter Miami’s stars
Gonzalo Higuaín showed a huge surprise in statements on Catalunya Ràdio’s ‘Tot Costa’ program when he met the price FC Barcelona paid for Robert Lewandoski. “Pardon my ignorance, it was free, right? 50 million euros? Phew, it will surely be a great signing if Barca pay that money.”
Higuaín spoke about his value, but also about the enormous footballing quality of the Pole: “Robert won the Champions League 2 years ago, he has a great level, he is one of the best strikers in the world in the last ten years“. This, yes, Inter Miami striker, Barça rival this Tuesdaywas amazed at the price: “In today’s football it doesn’t seem like much, but when I went to Madrid in 2006 you had to be a super crack for that moneynow with inflation, the entry of Arabs… it’s different, but you also have to be a crack to sign a 34-year-old player for that money”.
The Argentine spoke about Lewandoski’s seniority but also clarified that “in football there is no age, look at Benzema, Robert is an animal physically, It’s a great signing.”
Higuían believes Lewandowski will fit in because ‘he’s also an association player, at Bayern, he did, although perhaps it is more deadly. He’ll be fine.”
Xavi’s Barça stressed that “he has made a very important improvement since his arrivalthere are data, winning at the Bernabéu, he made a good progression. He came at a hot time, the team is hot and Barcelona will compete for everything again. It looked like it was going to take longer to recover, hopefully they give up.”
Messi as a partner?
As for the option which Leo Messi also wears the Inter Miami shirt one dayHiguaín clarified that “we have not had any contact about this, but if he arrives, it will be a huge revolution in the League”.Regarding the duel against Barça on Tuesdaydespite being a friend, the ‘Pipita’ described him as “the most important game in our historyit will be the first time that the stadium will be full.”
