Barcelona has finally reached the end of a pursuit to bring Polish striker Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich. The Blaugrana have reportedly agreed with the German club that will lead to the signing of Robert Lewandowski for a reported fee of €50 million (£42m/$50m). 

The prolific striker has been a top target for Barca since the start of the transfer window when reports emerged that Lewamdoswki could be open to leaving the German champions. The Polish striker ends his time in Germany with 344 goals in 375 appearances while winning eight Bundesliga titles and a Champions League trophy.

Bayern Munich CEO Oliver Kahn confirmed the news and addressed how the offer submitted by the Catans made sense for everybody involved. He said, “In the end, Barcelona offered a sum that selling him made absolute sense for us.”

“We’ve also recently been very successful on the transfer market and signed an absolutely world-class player for the offence in Sadio Mane. So we have now reached an agreement with Barcelona. So far, however, only verbally, the contract is still pending.”

During the early days of the transfer window, Bayern had found the perfect player to fill the massive void which would be created with Lewandowski’s departure. As mentioned earlier the player is Sadio Mane from Liverpool.  He departs the Merseyside-based club having 269 appearances under his belt in all competitions since joining from Southampton in 2016. During this time the Senegalese superstar scored 120 goals along with 48 assists.

While speaking with the club’s website, Mane talked about how he has been an admirer of the German club and is excited to take on a new challenge. He said, “I’m very happy to finally be with FC Bayern in Munich. We had a lot of talks and I felt the great interest of this big club from the start.”

“So there was no doubt in my mind right from the start: This is the right time for this challenge. I want to achieve a lot with this club, also internationally. During my time in Salzburg, I followed many FC Bayern games – I like this club very much!”
