Robert Lewandowski has been one of the best players in the world for the past few years. This season, he has struggled so much with Barcelona. The Polish striker won the Pichichi trophy last season in his first season with Barca, scoring 23 goals. Lewandowski has scored nine goals so far this season in La Liga after playing 21 games for the team. Lewandowski has been rumored to be sold to clubs in Saudi Arabia this summer to benefit the Catalan club. Lewandowski is 35 and will turn 36 in the summer. He arrived at the club for free, and Barca reportedly plans to sell him to a Saudi Arabian team for a profit.

Lewandowski hints to stay at Barca for longer after he spoke about his time so far at the club. Lewandowski says, "Playing at the new Spotify Camp Nou? Yes, of course, it's one of my objectives, to play again there... It's a magical stadium, a magical pitch. I feel very well in the city, my family too, we are very happy. I could just be happy with my things at the club, but the rest is fine too. Let's focus on this season because we can still win with Xavi, not just matches. I am focused 100% on the team. I prefer not to talk about what will happen at the end of the season; the priority is now."
