The Pole is the Catalans’ marquee signing this summer, but fans cannot buy a shirt with his name on it in the official club shop.
The reason, according to a shop employee, is that they have run out of the ‘W’ letter. Yep, you read that right.
Barcelona have really run out of the letter W because of Lewandowski 😅

Martine Braithwaite is the only other Barca player with this letter in his surname, and he’s unlikely to have caused such an emergency as his shirt is hardly popular among the fans.
Julian Nagelsmann has already wondered how Barcelona manage to make such a big splash in the transfer market. The shortage of a letter is another curious quirk.
