Renowned international soccer stars are opting to switch to United States or Saudi Arabia, but Robert Lewandowski is not following this trend. The Barcelona icon, 35 years old and with a long period of excellence, does not plan such a change. In July 2022, the Polish striker signed a four-year contract with the Spanish club, after being acquired for US$ 48 million dollars from Bayern Munich.
He is the second-highest scorer of all time in Germany’s top flight, with 312 goals, and came to Catalonia with the aim of being the top scorer on his La Liga debut, achieving 23 goals.
In an interview with the newspaper, Robert Lewandowski rejected any possibility of moving to other football markets. He stated: “I don’t think about something like that (like Saudi Arabia). I’m extremely happy in Barcelona, both in the team and in the city, with my family. As a person, I’m satisfied.” Before the coronavirus pandemic, Lewandowski considered the possibility of playing in North American football, such as MLS, but that idea is no longer part of his plans.
“The MLS proposal was something I had in mind, but, somehow, I changed my perspective. After my career at Barcelona, it’s difficult to imagine going there,” he added.
