* Star Undergoes Medical Today

Barcelona and Bayern Munich have reportedly reached an agreement over the transfer of striker Robert Lewandowski.

Lewandowski will head to Barcelona today to undergo his medical with the Catalan outfit

The 33-year-old went public with his desire to leave the German champions earlier in the summer and is understood to have been pining for a move to Camp Nou.

Lewandowski has less than 12 years left to run on his existing contract at the Allianz Arena, meaning that Bayern were at risk of losing the Poland international on a free transfer in 2023.

However, club chiefs such as Oliver Kahn and Hasan Salihamidzic frequently insisted that the two-time Best FIFA Men’s Player will honour his contract with the Bavarian giants.

Barcelona refused to throw in the towel over a move for Lewandowski in spite of their financial problems, and according to The Athletic, an agreement is now in place.

The outlet claims that La Blaugrana will pay an initial €45m (£38.3m) to sign the 33-year-old, which could rise to €50m (£42.5m) with performance-related add-ons.

Lewandowski is already understood to have agreed personal terms on a four-year contract with Barcelona, which would see him don the Catalan colours after his 37th birthday.

The former Borussia Dortmund man prepares to leave Julian Nagelsmann’s side having scored a staggering 344 goals in 375 matches, as well as providing 72 assists in all tournaments.
Lewandowski has won the Champions League, the Club World Cup, eight Bundesliga titles, three DFB-Pokals, one UEFA Suoer Cup and five German Super Cups during his prolific spell at the Allianz Arena.

Despite his advancing years, Lewandowski still managed 50 goals from 46 games in all tournaments in the 2021-22 season, although he will leave without having broken Gerd Muller’s club record of 563 goals
