Robert Lewandowski unveiled to Barcelona fans following £42.5m move with Memphis Depay’s No.9 shirt

Robert Lewandowski

The Poland striker signed a three-year deal with the LaLiga side last month, but has remained in Germany for his rehabilitation from an injury sustained at Euro 2020.

Lewandowski, 30, has been handed Memphis Depay’s No 9 shirt at Nou Camp and will finally get chance to prove himself in Europe’s top league after struggling to replicate his Bundesliga form during stints at Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich.

And he will finally get chance to prove himself in Europe’s top league after spending five years in Germany with Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.

“[The Premier League] is one of the best leagues in the world,” he told Liverpool fans on Twitter. “I think you guys deserve it.”

Robert Lewandowski was officially unveiled to Barcelona fans on Tuesday after he completed a move from Bayern Munich last month.

The Poland striker signed a three-year deal with the LaLiga side last month, and has now been unveiled to the Camp Nou crowd following his medical on Monday.

Lewandowski will wear the No 9 shirt for Barca, having left it vacant since Neymar’s departure for Paris Saint-Germain two years ago.

The 29-year-old becomes Barcelona’s first signing of their transfer window this summer, which closes at midnight on Friday, after agreeing terms with Bayern over an initial payment of €4million (£3.75m) plus add-ons worth €13m (£12m).

The Bundesliga champions have agreed to allow him out of his contract early despite still having another year remaining on his current deal at Allianz Arena – making him free to sign elsewhere before that date arrives in 2021.

Lewandowski has been handed Memphis Depay’s No.9 shirt at Nou Camp, with the Dutchman having been released by Barcelona in the summer after a disappointing spell.

While Lewandowski is most definitely an upgrade on Depay, it’ll be interesting to see how he fares in La Liga. The German international struggled to adapt when he joined Bayern from Borussia Dortmund in 2014 and it was only when he finished as top scorer in his final season that fans started to warm to him.

In comparison, Messi has scored 95 goals for Barca since 2009/10 and Neymar 41 during his first three campaigns at the club (they’ve played six seasons together).

The Bundesliga may not be as competitive or exciting as Spain’s Primera Division but there are some great teams and managers – including Jurgen Klopp – who can challenge Bayern Munich’s dominance of the league

Lewandowski will finally get chance to prove himself in Europe’s top league

  • Lewandowski has been the top scorer in the Bundesliga for the past six seasons
  • He has won four Bundesliga titles and three DFB-Pokal trophies with Bayern Munich
  • He has also won two DFL-Supercups and two UEFA Champions League titles

Robert Lewandowski was unveiled to the Barcelona fans on Tuesday following his free transfer from Bayern Munich.
