The brand new signing of Barça proposed this condition in the framework of the marketing of its brand ‘RL9’
Memphis wore the ‘9’ last season and in the first friendly of the American tour
No one doubts within FC Barcelona that Robert Lewandowski will wear the ‘9’. The same number that he has worn in recent seasons at Bayern Munich. He is a forward in the area, of reference, pure. And at Barça they are aware that they need to start marketing their shirt as soon as possible. In fact, estimates have been made at the club and they expect to raise some 20 million euros for it.
The ‘Lewandowskimania’ has been unleashed in the Barca environment. As SPORT has learned, the polish player has a verbal pact with the catalan club to wear the number ‘9’. He still hasn’t debuted with the Barça shirt, so we haven’t been able to see him wearing it yet. In fact, last year it was Memphis Depay who took it. The Dutchman took the baton from Suárez and other historical players like Eto’o or Ronald Nazario.
THE FIRST CHANCE, IN LAS VEGAS
this coming weekend in Las Vegas, in the classic against Madrid, we will have the first opportunity to see what the club does about it. If Memphis is ‘urged’ to give up the number to his partner or what. But it would not make much sense, if they know that Lewandowski will wear it yes or yes in official competition, for him to wear another in a match with such media coverage.
We would like to say thanks to the writer of this short article for this remarkable material
