Lewandowski, twist in La Liga?


By: Manu Tournoux

Under contract with FC Barcelona until June 2025, Robert Lewandowski is in the sights of Atlético de Madrid. A transfer could take place as early as this summer.

After a mixed start to the season, Robert Lewandowski woke up at the same time as his FC Barcelona team. Shaken by the announcement of Xavi's departure next June, the Blaugrana team has changed its face, to such an extent that it has not lost a single match since January 27, in all competitions. For his part, the Polish striker has regained some efficiency and is back in the race for the top scorer ranking in La Liga (13 goals, three less than the leader, Jude Bellingham). But will that be enough to convince Barcelona not to sell him this summer?

The question arises since Robert Lewandowski's contract is such that every year his salary increases. And for a Barça already in difficulty with its finances, the prospect of continuing a third year with the striker is not necessarily well regarded. In fact, some teams are starting to tremble, particularly in the Spanish capital. In any case, this is what journalist Ruben Uria indicated. Quoted by Mundo Deportivothe Atlético de Madrid specialist revealed that the club where Antoine Griezmann plays would like to attract Lewandowski.

Conclusive antecedents

Top scorer in the championship last year, the Polish veteran also scored last weekend in the match won handily by Barcelona on the field of Atlético (0-3). In recent years, the Colchoneros have regularly drawn from Catalonia, and the experiences have been rather conclusive. Whether it is David Villa who arrived in 2013 and champion of Spain the following year with Atlético. Ditto for Luis Suarez in 2020. As for Memphis Depay, his qualitative contribution is considered satisfactory, including a decisive goal scored during the quarter-final second leg of the Champions League finally won by the Madrilenians against Inter Milan.

Despite his thirty-five years, Robert Lewandowski is therefore a serious option for Madrid recruiters who could therefore go on the attack next summer. Barcelona will surely be a seller. It remains to be seen whether the three parties will be able to reach an agreement.
