Robert Lewandowski has indicated that he plans to stay at Barcelona until the end of the 2025-26 season.
When Barcelona’s leadership decided to use financial leverage to sign a number of high-profile players in 2022, Lewandowski was at the top of their priority list.
The Poland international joined Barcelona from Bayern Munich in a deal worth up to €50 million if a number of add-ons are implemented.
As it stands, the transfer may be deemed a success, with Lewandowski scoring 23 goals and assisting seven times in last season’s La Liga championship.
Despite scoring 47 goals and 14 assists in 77 games, the renowned frontman will be 36 in August.
Barcelona’s dangerous financial situation has been well documented, and the club is currently in a moment of transition in which younger players are favored, there is a case to be made that they would prefer to part ways with one of their highest earners.
Robert Lewandowski wants to play for Barcelona for two more season
Nonetheless, in an interview with Sport, Lewandowski stated that he has no plans to leave and that he wants to play at Camp Nou again after it has been renovated.
Lewandowski stated: “Yes, of sure, playing at the Camp Nou again is one of our goals.
He went on to say, “I feel great in the city, and so does my family; we are very happy.” I might just be content with my belongings at the club, but the rest is wonderful too.”
The comments come as Barcelona searches for a replacement for Xavi, who just revealed that he will quit his position in the dugout at the conclusion of the season.
Barcelona now lacks a senior alternative to Lewandowski, despite recently signing Brazilian sensation Vitor Roque.
Since his arrival, the 18-year-old has made seven substitute appearances and scored in La Liga games against Osasuna and Alaves.
Lewandowski is set to remain in the starting lineup when Barcelona hosts Granada on Sunday evening.
