Robert Lewandowski to stay at Barcelona despite lucrative offers from Saudi Arabia

Robert Lewandowski, whose contract with FC Barcelona expires in June 2026, has been the subject of much interest in recent months, particularly from Saudi Arabia. However, barring a major turnaround, the Polish striker is expected to remain in Catalonia.

Where will Robert Lewandowski play next season? Linked to FC Barcelona until June 2026, the Polish forward continues to make headlines in the transfer market. Often criticized since the start of the 2023-2024 season despite his 20 goals and 9 assists in 39 matches in all competitions, the Polish international (148 caps, 82 goals) is regularly rumored to be leaving. With this in mind, Saudi Arabia seems determined to secure his services. Recently, Spanish media claimed that the Saudi Pro League was ready to offer him a huge contract in which his salary would be tripled.

However, according to the latest information from Sport, a departure from Catalonia is clearly not on the agenda. The daily newspaper reports that the current second-placed team in La Liga is more than ever counting on its striker despite these dazzling offers and the substantial emoluments of the Warsaw native. Aware of the difficulty of attracting a world-class striker, Barça – which is still struggling with limited finances – would therefore be more inclined to continue the adventure with the number 9, also tracked by Atlético de Madrid.

Robert Lewandowski wants to stay at Barça!

For his part, the former Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich center-forward has assured that he wishes to remain in the Blaugrana shirt and has directly expressed this to his agent, Pini Zahavi. Despite several questionable performances, the 35-year-old remains, today, one of the main attacking assets of the Blaugranas, especially at a time when Vitor Roque has not had much playing time since his arrival in January. Therefore, and in order to best ensure the transition, Barça wants to continue to rely on him. If Robert Lewandowski has a problematic salary in relation to the club’s financial situation, his sporting impact remains significant.

Thus, Sport recalls that a departure from Lewandowski could cause a real cataclysm for next season. While it is true that the Catalan club could receive a transfer fee of nearly 40 million euros and save a lot of money on the wage bill, the price of top strikers on the market is exorbitant. The club would then have no room for maneuver, except for the presence of Vitor Roque, who has not yet proven himself. If Joan Laporta and his teams continue to work on his succession – Erling Haaland is notably mentioned for the summer of 2025 – Robert Lewandowski should therefore, for the time being, remain the reference of the Barcelona attack.
