Robert Lewandowski is hoping to spend “many years” at Barcelona, with the prolific Polish striker showing no sign of slowing down at 34 years of age.
  • Prolific Pole left Bayern in 2022
  • Goals have flowed at Camp Nou
  • Three years left on his contract

WHAT HAPPENED? The experienced frontman completed a move to Camp Nou during the summer of 2022, with a record-setting eight-year stint at Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich brought to a close. Lewandowski is tied to a contract in Catalunya through to 2026 and, having helped fire Barca to the top of La Liga, he believes he can continue to compete at the very highest level for several more seasons.

WHAT THEY SAID: Lewandowski has told Barca Magazine of his future plans: “I don't think about how many years I will be at Barca. I still think I can play a few more years at a high level, but I don't know how many. I'm sure it won't be one or two. It will be more. I hope I can stay here for many years. Now I understand the meaning of Mes que un Club.”

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Lewandowski, who hit 344 goals through 375 appearances for Bayern, has found the target on 25 occasions across his 31 outings for Barca in all competitions.
