In case you have been living under a rock, Barcelona has been on a “buying spree” at the moment. By “buying spree”, we mean that the Catalans have been acquiring free agents left and right. This season in the summer, they got three big, recognizable players for free, Sergio Aguero, Memphis Depay and Eric Garcia. The Blaugrana brought in Depay and Aguero because their attack was heavily dependent on just one man and they got Garcia because their defence was not really working out.
However, the club was not finished there. Although they brought in three new players for free, none of them had any significant impact on the team and Aguero was even forced to retire prematurely after he was diagnosed with a heart condition. The club then went on to bring in two more free agents in the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Adama Traore. They went on to have an instant impact.
Barcelona has already “secured” Robert Lewandowski for next season
Thus, the club has decided that they will carry on the free agents strategy and are thus going for the likes of Kylian Mbappe. Kylian will be impossible to secure because he loves Real Madrid, Lewandowski is a different story. The Polish super striker will be out of a contract by the end of the next season and he has claimed that there has been no communication from Bayern yet.
According to reports from Sports Italia and Forbes, the player has already made an agreement with Barcelona to join them after the season ends. According to them, it’s an agreement in principle and thus it looks very likely that the 33-year-old will join the Blaugrana next season. However, how much of this is the truth? While yes, any team would love to have Lewandowski on their side, let’s look at the facts. Barca already has a high wage bill, they are also trying to sign Erling Haaland and most importantly, they already brought in a super successful striker in the name of Aubameyang.
On top of the above-mentioned points, Madrid is also interested in the player and Barca would much rather go for Haaland than Lewandowski. That is because although the Bayern player would be coming on a lower fee, he is also 33 years old already. Barca already has an ageing striker and they need a new, younger option, making Haaland the perfect choice. Thus, although it seems like a brilliant deal for the Catalans, it really is not, in the long run.
Do you think these rumours about Lewandowski will come to fruition or will they remain as rumours? Let us know in the comments down below.
