“Do not refuse” deal.. Why did Lewandowski decide to stay in Barcelona?


Polish star Robert Lewandowski confirmed that he wants to stay in Barcelona next season, ending doubts about his immediate future.

As for the reasons for Lewandowski’s decision to continue with the Catalan team, media sources say that the matter is related to salary, as it was reported that the 35-year-old player agreed to a 4-year contract, the first 3 of which were with an increasing salary, when he moved to Barcelona in the summer of 2022. .

According to the Football Spain website, Lewandowski earned 20 million euros during his first season, and the number rose to 26 million euros this season.

He added: “The salary will rise again to 32 million euros next season (when Lewandowski will have already turned 36 years old), and in the final year of his contract, Barcelona will pay 26 million euros.”

Therefore, the total financial value of this deal will reach 104 million euros.

This means that Lewandowski is facing a “can’t refuse deal” with the Catalan team, and he will not earn much more than that if he decides to move to one of the Gulf clubs, according to “Football Spain.”

Lewandowski joined Barcelona from Bayern Munich in 2022. Since then, he has helped the Catalan club win the league title last season, in addition to the Spanish Super Cup.

The Polish striker finished his first season as the league's top scorer with 23 goals, but he has scored 18 goals so far in Barcelona's current season, from which he will emerge without titles.

He continued: “I always want the best, not only for me but for my teammates, and I am sure that this team will win titles next season because I see what we do every day. For me, this is what matters because this club is close to my heart and I want to give a lot to the team.” And the club.”
