Go to Saudi Arabia or America: Robert Lewandowski takes a stand

Finish your life in USA or Saudi Arabia? Robert Lewandowski apparently didn’t!

The 35-year-old moved to FC Barcelona from Bayern Munich last summer and is under contract until 2026.

Lewandowski won eight Bundesliga titles in a row with Bayern and two more under Jurgen Klopp at Borussia Dortmund. With 312 goals, he is the second all-time leading scorer in the top German league, behind the legendary Gerd Müller.

His move to Barcelona in July 2022 for €45 million was a record sale for FC Bayern. In Spain he immediately demonstrated his excellent clipping skills by winning the Pichichi Trophy in his first season in Spain. With 23 goals in 34 La Liga games, he scored four more goals than Karim Benzema in his final season at Real Madrid. It seems the Poles haven’t had enough with the Catalans.

In conversation with AS Lewandowski dismissed any suggestion he was considering a move to the Saudi pro league – which has spent an extraordinary amount of money on players this summer to raise the profile of the league and the country. Despite previously expressing a desire to move to America, the Pole appears to be ruling out a move to MLS.

“I never thought about it (going to Saudi Arabia). I’m very happy in Barcelona, ​​in the team, in the city and with my family. I’m happy as a person,” said the Pole. National team captain.

“Before the pandemic, the idea of ​​going to MLS was in my head, but somehow after that I changed my mind. After the Barcelona episode, it’s hard to imagine going there,” Lui insisted.

Lewandowski also spoke about his goal tally at Barcelona, ​​which is still good, but no longer at the level he showed at Bayern over the years.

He said of his performance than before: “Before Barcelona I was a machine, here I have become more human.”

“Some of the comments about the number of goals I scored were crazy, especially in a 41-goal season at Bayern (he broke Gert Müller’s Bundesliga record). Breaking records is no longer my main goal. The most important thing is to help. Help my team win and enjoy the games. Don’t get me wrong. Don’t count, I still want to win and score, but I’m not as stubborn as I used to be.”

Lewandowski is already in full action for the 2023/24 season and has scored twice in four La Liga games to help Barcelona take ten points from twelve.
