According to the main Spanish media, an agreement in principle has been concluded between Bayern and Barça for the transfer of Robert Lewandowski. The Polish striker is expected in Catalonia in the coming hours. The amount of the operation should reach 50 million euros, bonus included.
This is one of the transfers of the summer: while the Spanish and German media have all hinted in recent hours that the operation would take place, a milestone seems to have been crossed for the transfer of Robert Lewandowski to Barça. The very informed journalists Fabrizio Romano and Gerard Romero, as well as the Catalan dailies Sport and Mundo Deportivo announce that the Pole will leave Bavaria. And that Bayern has accepted FC Barcelona’s latest proposal.
50 million euros, bonus included
The 33-year-old should join Catalonia this Saturday to undergo his medical examination and sign his contract. A three-year lease, with an option, for an operation of 50 million euros bonus included (45 million + 5 million in variables). Figures confirmed in stride in Germany by Picture and Sky Sports.
The positions of the two teams had come very close in recent hours, after several weeks of a soap opera punctuated by the start of the showdown started by the player. Because Robert Lewandowski no longer hid his desire to join Barça. And only Barça, despite the interest of other clubs, in particular PSG.
The presence of the Pole on Saturday during the presentation of the Bayern team to the supporters was also in doubt. He will therefore not have to come up against the potential scolds of the fans. It remains to be seen when the striker will be able to join his new teammates: either after a stint in Barcelona, or directly in the United States, where the club is on a summer preparation tour. His presentation to the Camp Nou public is set to take place in August.
