Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski has vowed to join Barcelona. The Catalan champions have agreed to negotiations on a three-year deal with the 33-year-old.  PSG, Manchester City, and Liverpool were all interested in hiring the Poland striker, yet he preferred to choose Barcelona per BR Football. 

Barcelona has been eyeing the acquisition of the Poland captain as they strive to add a strong, reliable striker to Xavi Hernandez’s project. Pini Zahavi, his agent, has engaged with the Catalans, and the Catalans have obtained favourable input from those discussions.

It is presently reported that the negotiations have culminated in a contract agreement. According to Interia Sport, Lewandowski and Barcelona have secured a deal on a three-year multi-million dollar agreement ahead of a potential move later this summer. Several other European giants, notably Liverpool, Paris Saint-Germain, and Manchester City, are said to have offered bids to the ace goalscorer. Lewandowski, on the other hand, seemed to have opted to join Barça.

Per the reports, Lewandowski desired a three-year contract from his suitors, and Barcelona has allegedly granted him the same.  To complete the contract well before the commencement of the next season, the Blaugrana will have to settle a transfer budget with Bayern Munich. The Bundesliga champions desire him to persist further. Nonetheless, with the striker reportedly yearning for a switch elsewhere, they will be compelled to move him or risk sacrificing their strongest gem for free in 2023.

If this is real, Lewandowski would be a major acquisition for Barcelona. Although being 33 years old, the Polish forward has demonstrated no indications of slacking down this campaign, netting 46 goals thus far.  A three-year deal could be perceived as a concern, but if Lewandowski sustains his existing form, Barça will benefit immensely from his arrival.
