Barcelona agreed a deal to sign Robert Lewandowski, who is understood to have signed a three-year contract with the club, over the weekend; the Polish striker had just one year remaining on his Bayern Munich contract and had told the German champions he would not sign a new one.
Poland striker Robert Lewandowski has joined his new Barcelona team-mates in Miami after completing his EUR 50 mln move from Bayern Munich.
Although there has been no official written confirmation, Lewandowski wore Barcelona colours in a series of videos posted on the club's Twitter account from Miami.
“Finally I am here and I am very happy to join Barcelona,” he said in a video released by Barcelona ahead of its US tour.
“The last few days were very long days but in the end the deal was done so now I am going to focus on a new chapter in my life and a new challenge.”
“I am still the guy who wants to win, not only the game but also the titles so I hope from the beginning of the season we will begin winning and go for the titles during the season and at the end of the season.”
“I always wanted to play in La Liga, I always wanted to play for the biggest clubs. It is the next step. Also for my private life, it was a new challenge.”
The Polish national team captain could make his Barcelona debut when his new side play Inter Miami in the first match of their tour on Tuesday.
