In an unexpected turn of events, the Saudi Pro League is once again making headlines in European football circles. This time, the focus is on Barcelona’s star striker, Robert Lewandowski, as Saudi clubs are preparing a January transfer offer for the prolific forward.
Saudi ambition and Robert Lewandowski
Over the past year, the Saudi Pro League has become increasingly ambitious in its pursuit of top European talent. With four teams now financially backed by the Saudi Public Investment Fund (PIF), the league has successfully lured several star players away from major European clubs with enticing mega-money contracts.
It was reported in September that Lewandowski had rejected a move to Saudi Arabia. This happened during the final days of the summer transfer window. Despite these offers, Barcelona’s key player opted to stay at the Camp Nou.
Saad Bguir, a player for the Abha Club, has expressed his desire for the club to secure Lewandowski’s services. However, Barcelona has remained steadfast in its stance regarding the Polish international. As things stand, they are unwilling to part ways with Lewandowski, especially considering his significant role in the first team in Catalonia.
According to the latest update from Diario Sport, Barcelona is unlikely to change their position on Lewandowski’s future. FC Barcelona will back Lewandowski this season. However, the club could think about moving him on if there is a significant drop in form. Nevertheless, reports suggest that four Saudi Pro League sides are gearing up for another attempt to secure his signature in the upcoming January transfer window.
It remains to be seen whether Robert Lewandowski will continue to light up the Camp Nou or embark on a new adventure in the Saudi Pro League. Stay tuned for further developments in this exciting transfer story.
