The 33-year-old striker has signed a 4-year contract with the Blaugrana.

Barcelona have announced the signing of Bayern Munich and Polish star striker Robert Lewandowski for a fee close to £42.5m. The striker has signed a 4-year deal at the club.

Lewandowski recorded 344 goals in 375 matches for Bayern Munich. But decided to leave the German club this summer and made his intentions to join Barcelona early on. Despite the financial troubles at the club, the Blaugrana have managed to sign the Polish goal machine. Robert Lewandowski headed straight to Miami to join Barcelona's pre-season camp.

Upon joining the club, Robert Lewandowski said:

"Finally I am here and I am very happy to join Barcelona. The last few days were very long days but in the end the deal was done so now I am going to focus on a new chapter in my life and a new challenge, But I am still the guy who wants to win, not only the game but also the titles so I hope from the beginning of the season we will begin winning and go for the titles during the season and at the end of the season."

"I always wanted to play in LaLiga, I always wanted to play for the biggest clubs. It is the next step. Also for my private life, it was a new challenge. I know that it's time to get Barcelona back on track and I am here to help them get back to the top and to winning as many titles as possible."

"I have been speaking with Xavi and I know that from the beginning I know his mind and his ideas are going in a good way. For me, he made it easy for me to come to Barcelona."

"I am a player that wants to play and to win and with Xavi that is very possible. He knows exactly how to coach Barcelona because he was an amazing player and now he is a very good coach with an amazing future. Goals are always a high. I always want to win, not only the games but also the titles. We have so many players with amazing quality and we can achieve a lot this season.: he added.

The 33-year-old could make his debut for the Blaugrana against MLS team Inter Miami on Tuesday.
