Barcelona finds Lewandowski’s replacement in the Premier League

Robert Lewandowski is spending his second year at Barcelona and is doing very well.

The Polish striker has scored six goals and assisted four others in 10 official matches between La Liga and the Champions League.

But looking at his age, the Catalans are thinking about another central striker as it is unlikely that Lewandowski will be in the same form until the end of the contract which is in 2026.

Manchester City’s Argentinian striker Julian Alvarez is Barcelona’s main target for the attacking department.

Catalan newspaper Sport has reported that the Catalans have prioritized the transfer of Alvarez in the summer of 2024 as it is reported that he has a release clause from Citizens of only 50 million euros.

The 23-year-old has a contract with City until the summer of 2028, but the English champions intend to extend it in order to remove the exit clause.

However, now the player himself will decide whether to continue the contract or wait for better offers in a club where I can play more since at City he is usually on the reserve bank as Erling Haaland is considered untouchable by Pep Guardiola.
