Barcelona president Laporta: ‘We competed with PSG and Chelsea for Robert Lewandowski’

Speaking to TUDN, Barcelona president Joan Laporta said: “After the Robert Lewandowski deal, we are now looking at strengthening the defence.

 

“We competed with Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea for Lewandowski and he wanted to come to us, we must thank him because he gets less money from us.

“Barca will not make the same mistakes again. We will not have players who do not fit our style. We will move carefully [from now on].

 

“Every top team has a ‘killer’ striker up top. Now, we have secured that too. I know that Barca fans are very happy with the signing of Lewandowski.”

 

Barcelona have officially announced a deal to sign Lewandowski from Bayern Munich for a fee of €45 million with an additional €5 million in variables.

 

The 33-year-old openly pushed to leave the Bundesliga giants this summer, ignoring interest from elsewhere as he was only interested in Barca.
