The Polish striker says he didn't think too much when Barça came knocking on his door, and having trained under Guardiola he can adapt quickly to Barça's game

Robert Lewandowski is a happy man. The Polish striker was clear that he wanted to sign for Barça to start a new personal project, and after long and tough negotiations he can finally don his own Barça jersey. His possible debut will be one of the attractions of the upcoming El Clasico on Sunday morning in Las Vegas.

Lewandowski, speaking to the club's media, said that he did not need to think much when Barça knocked on his door and was clear about his decision. "I knew that this project has a very good future, although the last few years were difficult. When they contacted me I didn't think about it because I knew it was the right time. I'm here to give my best and to help the team to be at the top," he said.

His decision deserves a lot of merit since he chose to leave a champion team like Bayern Munich for another that is seeking to reclaim its former glory among the European elite, having failed in recent years in the Champions League. By scoring goals, he hopes to make the team's ever-loyal fans happy. "I want to give a lot of joy to the Barcelonistas. I want to make them as happy as they had already been, or even happier, because they support the team whether it's going well or not. The fans are always there, they always try to support the team. And this season we will try to give the fans as much joy as possible."

Doubtlessly he will be able to adapt and adapt well, as players of his calibre always end up delivering. The Pole has an added advantage in that he already knows some of Barça's style having played under Pep Guardiola at Bayern, and the style of Xavi Hernandez draw inspiration from the same source. "Since Pep coached me, I think it will be easier to adapt to Barça. I am a person who loves to listen. After my first conversation with Xavi, I already knew his idea and his mentality. I think I'm ready and I'm excited to work with him," he said.
