Robert Lewandowski had just one year remaining on his Bayern Munich contract and had told the German champions he would not sign a new one; Lewandowski will fly to Spain on Saturday for a medical before signing a three-year contract.

Lewandowski is still in Munich and will fly to Miami on Sunday, where Barcelona will begin their pre-season tour, for a medical before signing his three-year contract, which contains an option for a further 12 months.

The Poland international had just one year remaining on his Bayern contract and had told the club he would not renew his deal.

“I didn’t have much time to prepare for it. It all went very quickly to say goodbye to everyone!” Lewandowski told Sky Germany after agreeing to his move.

“These eight years were special and you don’t forget that. I had a great time in Munich.

“I will fly soon but after the training camp, I will come back and say goodbye properly and organise a few things. I said goodbye to the boys on the field today, I wasn’t worried about an injury in training. Something can happen to me at home. I wanted to keep fit and train with the boys again.”

Up until now, the German champions had insisted Lewandowski was not for sale and turned down a €40m (£33.8m) offer from Barcelona last month.

However, Lewandowski’s departure would help Bayern to finance the signing of Matthijs de Ligt from Juventus, who have priced the centre-back at around €80m (£67.7m) plus bonuses, according to reports in Italy.

Hasan Salihamidzic, Bayern’s sporting director, was in Turin on Monday to open negotiations for De Ligt with Juventus. The Dutchman has two years remaining on his Juve contract and is reported to have told the Italian club he is keen to move to Munich.

Chelsea has also been tracking De Ligt this summer as they try to replace Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen, who both left on free transfers but are set to complete a deal for Kalidou Koulibaly.

Lewandowski has been with Bayern since 2014 and has scored 344 goals for the club in 375 appearances across all competitions.

He has helped Bayern to eight Bundesliga titles in the last eight seasons, as well as three German Cups, and has just been crowned the league’s top scorer for the fifth season in a row after netting 35 goals in 34 Bundesliga games in 2021/22.
