Lewandowsk­i: Big goals with Barca


Robert Lewandowsk­i was officially introduced by Barcelona on Wednesday, saying he’s ready to make history with the Spanish club. Barcelona last weekend reached a deal to sign the Poland striker from Bayern Munich in a transfer worth nearly $50.8 million. “I am ready to be part of this club with a great history and to make even more history and win titles,” Lewandowsk­i said in Miami as Barcelona began its preseason tour. The Catalan club routed Inter Miami 6-0 on Tuesday. It will next face Spanish rival Real Madrid in Las Vegas, then Juventus in Dallas and the New York Red Bulls in New Jersey. “I saw the win against Inter Miami and I think there is a lot of potential,” the 33-year-old striker said. Lewandowsk­i, voted FIFA player of the year in 2020 and 2021, has been training individual­ly since joining his new teammates in the U.S. on Sunday. He’s expected to be available for the team’s match against Real Madrid. The high-profile signing of the striker boosts a Barcelona team that didn’t win any titles last season following the departure of Argentina great Lionel Messi.
