Announced in Saudi Arabia since last year, while he is experiencing a second contrasting season at Barça, Robert Lewandowski, 35, was categorical regarding his future.

FC Barcelona will be able to count on their scorer Robert Lewandowski next season. At 35 years old, the Polish veteran, although he has 12 goals in La Liga and three in the Champions League, is having a hard time distinguishing himself in the game under the orders of Xavi Hernandez, a fan of football based on possession. Little used by his teammates, “Lewy” is most of the time invisible at the forefront of the Blaugrana attack.

Under contract until 2026, Lewandowski would have the choice to leave FCB whenever he wanted, having already been approached by the most powerful clubs in Saudi Arabia last summer. “It’s clear to me, I’m going to stay at Barça next season. One day someone writes something, the other day it’s the opposite, but for me everything is clear”launched the former Bayern striker to the Polish media Meczykipl.

Lewandowski at Euro 2024?

Lewandowski will perhaps have the chance to reunite with Hansi Flick, with whom he won the Champions League in 2020 against PSG in Lisbon. The German technician has been in pole position for several weeks to succeed Xavi, even if president Joan Laporta and sporting director Deco have thought of Mikel Arteta, stationed at Arsenal, and Roberto De Zerbi, the Italian strategist from Brighton.

As a reminder, The Best 2020 and 2021 are still playing in the national team. The Poles will soon compete in the Euro 2024 play-offs, with a semi-final against Estonia and a possible final against the winner Wales-Finland. The winner of this play-off will find themselves in the French team group, with a match against the Blues on the third and final day.
