The Polish international is preparing for the last big deal of his career
There is a real possibility of Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski coming to Barcelona. The player wants to come, his agent, Pini Zahvi, is close to Joan Laporta and he feels that, after eight years with Bayern and 12 in Germany, his cycle in the Bundesliga is coming to an end. At Bayern, however, they believe there are "no motives for him to leave."
Lewandowski himself has put a date on the end of his time with Bayern: June 30, 2022. He joined the Bavarian club in 2014 and moved to Germany in 2010, when he signed for Borussia Dortmund from Lech Poznan. He now wants a new challenge in the final years of his career.
He would like to have moved before, but circumstances never allowed it, especially for a team like Barça or Real Madrid. A deal would have been too much in the past, especially once Covid-19 hit clubs accounts, but things have changed now.
Last big sporting project
Lewandowski, who will turn 34 in August, knows that this will be his last big deal and sporting project after winning everything with Bayern -- from the Champions League in 2020 to seven Bundesliga titles. He has also won three German cups, give German super cups, a European super cup and a Club World Cup.
With a change of scenery, Lewandowski is seeking the international recognition he has not received in Germany. He's certain that a club like Barça he would have a better chance of winning prizes like the Ballon d'Or. In 2020, it was cancelled when he would probably have won it, and in 2021 he was beaten by Lionel Messi.
