In a move that was long-awaited, Barcelona and Bayern Munich officially agreed to terms over the transfer of Robert Lewandowski on Saturday.
The Bundesliga powerhouse is set to reportedly earn €45 million coupled with €5 million in add-ons in exchange for the veteran striker, who had a mere one more year on his contract with the club. More so, the Polish international came to terms with Barca on a three-year deal that includes an option for another year.
Multiple factors played into Lewandowski’s decision to push for an exit from Bayern Munich in favor of a move to Barca. For one, as he revealed to the German-based outlet Bild, he simply aimed to play in another league.
