It wasn't easy, but the deal went through Because you only wanted to play for Barca."

Afterwards, the two held a press conference and at the beginning of his words, Lewandowski said: "I'm having trouble finding the words to describe the excitement. I want to show my talent on the field as soon as possible. It's a challenge for me, I have to push the other players with my experience. I don't I only think about myself, but about the ability of the entire team. I've seen a lot of things in football, and if I can use that to help with words as well, and not just ability, I will."

"I know these are not the easiest days for the club," continued the Pole, "but when I spoke with Laporte and saw the project it was the first step. I know the future will be bright, this team has a lot of potential. In my first conversation with Xavi I understood what he wanted from me on the tactical side, I immediately felt that there was a good connection."

"Age is just a number, it doesn't matter. I feel good and can play at the highest levels, it wasn't easy to leave Bayern Munich, but for me and my family it was the right side. Real Madrid? I'm always ready to play against them, they had a great season And it will be difficult to beat them," concluded the Pole.
