Barcelona to pay Bayern 1.25 million euros after Lewandowski goal

After Barcelona

With the signing of Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski, Barcelona took a major financial risk. In addition to the transfer cost of €45 million, variable costs of €5 million were present. Having already turned 34 and with very few years left to play at the highest level, questions were raised about the forward’s longevity.

Lewandowski has done extremely well as the campaign nears its end. Despite Barçelona’s 2-1 defeat to United in midweek, Lewandowski’s goal at Old Trafford extended his goal tally to 25 in 30 competitive games. His goal against Manchester United, however, could be costly for Barcelona. After he scored 25 goals this season, Barça owes Bayern Munich €1.25 million, part of the €5 million variable agreement.

Current state of Barcelona after Europa league elimination yet again

Barcelona will definitely face issues, especially at a time when they have lost potential revenue because of elimination from the UEFA Europa League.

A fourth elimination from European competition in 15 months raised questions about Barcelona’s acquisition of Lewandowski and other stars. Despite this, the Blaugrana have been doing exceptionally well in La Liga. As a matter of fact, Xavi is on the verge of equaling Pep Guardiola’s and Tito Vilanova’s 62 points after 23 matches in the league.

A win over Almeria on Sunday would equal Xavi’s Barcelona record. In contrast, Lewandowski has only one goal in the last three league matches. He will be looking to extend his scoring streak.
