Assuming that Barcelona do not want to sell their talisman, it would take a mammoth fee to trigger his release clause, with the amount set at £431m (€500m). That will serve as a warning to Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain, who both tried to convince Lewandowski to snub the Catalan giants this summer.
While the numbers included will appear staggering to some, it seems Lewandowski is already proving Barca were right to push their financial limits to capture his signature. He hit an incredible 344 goals in 375 appearances for Bayern in his nine years at the Allianz Stadium, becoming one of the world’s most lethal marksmen.
In his first four matches, he has already scored five times, with Xavi’s side sitting in second place behind leaders Real after Lewandowski found the net in a comfortable 3-0 win over Sevilla.
