Robert Lewandowski all set to join Barcelona as Bayern accept Spanish club's final offer
- An agreement over personal details between the player and Barcelona was already in place
- Lewandowski had made it pretty clear that he has no intentions of returning to Barcelona
- Barca might have to wait for some time before they can register Lewandowski
The poker game for Robert Lewandowski has finally come to an end. Bayern Munich have accepted Barcelona's latest offer for the Polish striker. Having rebuffed all approaches from the Spanish giants for their coveted forward, Bayern have finally thrown in the towel and decided to sell Lewandowski.
It is reportedly said that Lewandowski that is agreed between Barcelona and Bayern is €45 million fee, with €5m in potential add-ons. An agreement over personal details between the player and Barcelona was already in place.
The medical and a few other formalities are yet to be done before Lewandowski is officially presented as a Barca player. As per reports, the official announcement of the signing could take place this weekend.
Lewandowski is also expected to join Barcelona on their US tour which starts next week with the first match against Inter Miami FC. He has been training with FC Bayern having returned to Munich a few days ago.
This summer, Barcelona is seen on a shopping spree despite their financial woes. The club has already signed the likes of Pablo Torre, Franck Kessie, Andreas Christensen, and Raphinha. And now, they have roped in arguably the best No. 9 in the world who has won two back-to-back Golden Boots.
A few weeks ago in a press conference, Lewandowski had made it pretty clear that he has no intentions of returning to Barcelona. The 33-year-old even said that his time in Munich is over and it would be good for all the parties if Bayern can agree on a deal with Barcelona over his transfer.
"Bayern is a serious club and I hope they will not keep me just because they can. A transfer is the best solution for all parties," he had said.
However, Barca might have to wait for some time before they can register Lewandowski. The club hasn't yet managed to register their other new signings too as the overall wage bill crosses the limit set by La Liga authorities. The Catalan giants are working on clearing the financial pathway to register new players.
