The Poland captain has joined Barca following a goal and trophy-laden eight years at Bayern Munich.

Robert Lewandowski has officially completed his move to Barcelona from Bayern Munich.

In a statement on Tuesday night, Barca confirmed that all formalities for the transfer were complete. Lewandowski met his new teammates in Miami on Sunday and passed his medical later on. He was also present for the club’s 6-0 friendly win over Inter Miami on Tuesday, but didn’t play.

What is Lewandowski’s transfer fee?

Barcelona have confirmed they’ll pay Bayern Munich an initial €45 million for Lewandowski, plus a further €5 million in add-ons. This brings the final transfer fee up to €50 million in total.

Lewandowski, who has signed a four-year contract at the LaLiga club, has a €500 million buyout clause. His shirt number remains undisclosed at this moment.

What is Lewandowski’s record at Bayern Munich?

The 33-year-old striker scored 50 goals across all competitions last season. Nobody managed more in Europe’s top five leagues. His exploits helped Bayern Munich lift their 10th Bundesliga title in a row.

The 2020/21 campaign, meanwhile, saw Lewandowski break Gerd Muller’s record of 40 goals in a Bundesliga season by scoring 41 times.

The two-time European Golden Shoe winner managed 344 goals and 57 assists in 375 appearances for Bayern overall, after joining the German side from Borussia Dortmund in 2014.

He won 20 trophies at the Allianz Arena, including eight successive Bundesliga titles and the Champions League, and has won The Best FIFA Men’s Player of the Year for the last two seasons in a row.
