Lewandowski has agreed to join Barça on a three-year deal

Robert Lewandowski gave an emotional goodbye as he left the Bayern Munich training ground ahead of his move to Barcelona.

Reports on Friday said that Bayern and Barça had agreed on a deal worth €50m, with the striker set to sign a three-year contract at the Camp Nou.

Lewandowski left the training ground on Saturday as he prepares to fly to Miami for his medical before official confirmation of his signing.

As he departed, the Poland international reflected on his time at the club and said he would return to give a proper goodbye before he officially leaves.

“I will come back and say a proper goodbye to all the employees. I didn’t have much time to prepare for it,” he told Sky Sports News.

“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 more things.

“I said goodbye to the guys on the pitch today. I wasn’t worried about an injury in training. Something can happen to me at home. Wanted to keep fit and trained with the boys again.”

The deal could be completed as early as this weekend

Barcelona are hopeful of completing the deal by Sunday and it will mark a major moment for Xavi, who has been chasing the 33-year-old all summer.

The forward has made it clear that he saw his future away from the Bundesliga champions, telling them “my story is over” and that he wanted a new challenge.

Barça are getting one of the best strikers in world football who showed his goalscoring prowess last season, netting 50 goals in 46 appearances in all competitions last year.
