Lewandowski in Barcelona: “I want to make history here”

MIAMI ( Associated Press) — Barcelona officially unveiled Robert Lewandowski on Wednesday, and the Polish striker declared himself ready to make history at a club hungry to gain prominence in Spain and Europe.

The Catalan last week struck a deal with Bayern Munich to acquire Lewandowski in a transfer of 50 million euros ($50.8 million). His official presentation was delayed since Monday.

“I love being part of this great club, with a great history and victories. I want to make history here,” Lewandowski said in Miami, where Barcelona have just started a preseason tour.

On Tuesday, the Catalan club thrashed MLS’s Inter Miami 6-0. His next opponent will be Real Madrid in Las Vegas. They also face Juventus in Dallas and the New York Red Bulls in New Jersey.

“I saw the win against Inter Miami and I think it has a lot of potential,” said the striker, who turns 33 next month. “We have a lot of work to do.”

Lewandowski, who won the 2020 and 2021 FIFA Player of the Year awards, has been training individually since joining his new squad on Sunday in the United States. Hopefully he will be available for the match against Madrid.

Barcelona’s excitement has been fueled by the arrival of a brilliant striker after failing to win the title last season following the departure of Lionel Messi. After its financial problems in recent years the club embarked on a slow and painful reconstruction.

“Lewandowski has made extraordinary efforts to sign for Barca. We are very proud that you wanted to come here and play and we have high hopes”, said club president Joan Laporta. “It has been a signing that has had an impact and launch around the world. We are bringing Barca back to the world and fixing the specific weight that the club must have. We will build an increasingly competitive team.”
