Spanish newspaper Marca reported that Lewandowski will leave for the United States after completing the contract. He will attend Barcelona’s pre-season training and matches.
Marca also reported that the club authorities will officially introduce Lewandowski as a Barcelona player at the Nou Camp on August 7 in the Joan Gamper Trophy match. On that day, Barcelona will play the Mexican team Pumas.
Meanwhile, the famous Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano said that the French giants Paris Saint-Germain and the English giants Chelsea tried to bring Lewandowski to the team. But he did not argue with these two clubs. His only goal was to leave Bayern and sign for Barcelona.
