The coming few days could be important for FC Barcelona as they are set to finalise a deal to sign yet another star player in the form of Robert Lewandowski.
The club reached an agreement with Bayern Munich yesterday, over the services of the Polish international, who was expected to arrive in Barcelona on Saturday to complete his medical.
But as per David Ornstein, there appears to be a change of plans as Lewandowski is set to travel to the United States directly and complete his medical in Miami. Barcelona are slated to camp in Miami as their first stop, as they look to lock horns with Inter Miami on July 20.
Lewandowski could complete his test in Miami before joining the Barcelona camp, for the pre-season preparations. The imminent nature of this transfer is hardly surprising as Xavi Hernandez was desperate to have the Pole available for his side’s pre-season tour to the US.
Soon after the striker completes his medical, Barcelona could confirm the deal that is likely to be worth around €45 million. The Catalans may have to pay an additional €5 million if certain variables are met.
Bayern Munich were initially holding out for €50 million upfront, but with Lewandowski visibly showing his discontent in the training camp at Sabener Strasse earlier this week, they have opted to settle for the €45 million fee upfront.
Lewandowski will sign a four-year deal with Barça until 2026. The forward will almost turn 38 by the time his contract expires, but Barcelona are confident the player can live up to the expectations and continue his merry way of scoring goals, this time in La Liga.
