FC Barcelona Back on Top of the Primera División
After three years without a title, FC Barcelona is finally back at the top of the Primera División. The club had added Robert Lewandowski before the season, but rumors have surfaced that he may have to leave Barça after the season. The news was reported by “El Nacional,” stating that Lewandowski has not met the expectations of the club bosses.
Struggles for Lewandowski
Even though he confidently leads the top scorer list in Spain, Lewandowski’s recent poor performance has raised doubts about his future with the club. Moreover, he’s currently struggling due to the change in the Barça DNA, as coach Xavi has put more emphasis on the defensive strategy. Since matchday 7, only three games have been won by more than two goals.
Lewandowski’s age has also become a factor. The Pole is in top form but aged 34. It means his high salary could slow down the necessary investments of the club, which has a notorious history of overspending.
Rumors and Speculation
While some speculate that Lewandowski’s departure is possible, the online portal, “El Nacional” quotes club circles that describe the rumor as a distant idea that has not been seriously considered—at least not yet.
Lewandowski himself repeatedly emphasizes that he feels very comfortable at Barcelona and still hopes to achieve a lot with the club. Despite their poor performance in Europe, the championship is almost secure for Barça as it sits twelve points ahead of second-placed and eternal rivals Real Madrid.
While the rumors are swirling about Lewandowski’s future at the club, fans will be hoping that he can prove his worth and help Barcelona maintain their top position, starting with their next match against bottom-of-the-table Elche.
