Robert Lewandowski has a contract with Barcelona until 2026 with an option to extend it for another year, but the Polish striker would be considering to end his career in MLS after leaving Catalonia.
At least that is what Lewandowski‘s Poland teammate and current Charlotte FC striker, Karol Swiderski, has revealed as reported by MLSsoccer.com.
« Yes, [Lewandowski] asks me sometimes [about MLS],’ Swiderski.
« I’m not sure [if he will move], but what I can see from when I spoke with him, maybe he will want to go one day to MLS to finish his career here.
« I’m waiting for this moment, so I hope he will come here, because he’s really a legend, [not only] in Poland but even I think in Europe. He’s scored many, many goals, so it would be nice to meet him in MLS. »
Does Lewandowski see himself playing in the United States?
Lewandowski has already been asked several times whether he would be willing to retire from football in the United States. Before leaving Bayern Munich to join Barcelona, the Poland international was vague when questioned if he could one day play in the MLS.
« Playing in the USA? I don’t know because I don’t know what does it mean for me and when,’ he told CBS Sports.
« For sure, I know a lot about MLS because a few Polish players and also German players was playing there, and they talk to me about the life but also about MLS and they make every year a step up. »
Lewandowski has scored 22 goals in 23 games for the Blaugrana, who are currently top of the LaLiga Santander table.
It remains to be seen whether he will follow in the footsteps of former Bayern Munich teammate Bastian Schweinsteiger, who joined Chicago Fire back in 2017.
