Despite being linked with a move to Saudi Arabia during the summer, the Polish international, Robert Lewandowski has made it clear that he is not considering a switch away from Camp Nou at this stage of his career.
Lewandowski, who joined Barcelona from Bayern Munich last summer, had an impressive first season at the club, scoring 33 goals and providing eight assists in 46 appearances. He has continued his strong form this season, with six goals and four assists in nine games, including five goals in La Liga.
Although the 35-year-old has three years left on his contract with Barcelona, and according to Sport, several teams in the Saudi Pro League are determined to push for his signature in 2024. While Barcelona currently have no plans to sell him next summer, the situation could change if Lewandowski expresses his desire to move on.
As one of the top players in European football, Lewandowski would likely command a significant salary in Saudi Arabia, potentially making him one of the highest earners in the Saudi Pro League. Abha Club is said to be one of the interested teams, and more clubs may join the race if it becomes clear that he will be available next year.
Since joining Barcelona, Lewandowski has scored 39 goals and provided 12 assists in 55 appearances, adding to his impressive tally of 344 goals and 73 assists in 375 matches for Bayern Munich.
The forward played the full 90 minutes of Barcelona’s 1-0 victory over Sevilla in the league on Friday.
Lewandowski is now preparing for the Catalan outfit’s second match of the 2023-24 Champions League group stage away to Porto on Wednesday night.
Barcelona remain unbeaten in all competitions this season, posting seven wins and two draws from their opening nine games of the campaign.
