Reports have been all over the place regarding the status of striker Robert Lewandowski and where he will be playing next. The 33-year-old is being heavily linked to FC Barcelona and if the Spanish club is able to attain his services, it would be huge for them. Since Lionel Messi departed, the club has been looking for a similar player to take the lead. They want another leader for the team and Lewandowski would be the missing piece they have been searching for.

The team would bring him in to be their main attacking player, something that is needed for this club to be taken to the next level. Putting Lewandowski next to the talent that Barcelona already has on board would instantly make the club a powerhouse once again. The team brought on Pierre Emerick Aubameyang earlier in 2022 and he has fit in like a glove with the team. He and Lewandowski would create a formidable scoring threat for Barcelona and would give the two veterans more scoring chances.

During his time in Germany, Lewandowski has thrived and really made a name for himself as one of the better players in the world. It is reported that he wants a new challenge and moving over to La Liga would definitely be a challenge for him. He would also be entering the shadow of Messi and that would bring major expectations as well. Lewandowski has the talent to live up to the challenge and would fit in really well with Barcelona. Barcelona uses a scheme where they funnel chances and passes to the central forward and if you give someone of Lewandowski’s talent chances, he is likely to convert those into a ton of goals.

He would be joining a club that has been on the rise since they hired new manager Xavi. He has helped the club bring back that fire that is normally associated with the team and his systems have allowed the players to be the best versions of themselves. He has helped Pedro Lopez or Pedri become a really solid player for the team and looks to be a future star player. Xavi also has unlocked some of the potential that Frenkie De Jong has, and it has helped the team become more successful. Xavi has transformed this team around rather quickly and bringing aboard a veteran star like Lewandowski would only add to their performance.

The CEO of Bayern Munich somewhat shut down the rumors of his player potential move to Barcelona but within sports as we’ve all seen, if a player wants to move, they will. This is the time of the year where rumors are afloat everywhere so it remains to be seen what exactly will happen in this situation. However, if Barcelona is able to get Lewandowski from Bayern Munich, it would be a massive move that would shift power back to the Spanish giants. Barcelona is one of the most storied clubs in soccer history and this move would be very similar to how the clubs has run things over the course of their strong history.
