Robert Lewandowski's next strikes to cost Barcelona 1.25 million euros

Barcelona's summer signing of Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich was a win for the club.

The 34-year-old Polish striker, who joined the Catalan club for a fixed fee of 45 million euros plus 5 million euros in variables, has proven his worth on the pitch.

With 14 goals in 16 La Liga appearances and 23 goals in 25 games across all competitions, Lewandowski has been a standout player for Barcelona this season.

However, the club may soon face a hefty payout of 1.25 million euros to Bayern Munich as Lewandowski is only two goals away from reaching the 25-goal mark.

As per the agreement made between the two clubs, Barcelona must pay this sum for each season in which Lewandowski scores 25 or more goals.

This means that if he achieves this feat in each of the four seasons he has signed on for with Barcelona, the club could end up paying a total of 5 million euros.

With matches against Sevilla, Villarreal, and Manchester United coming up, Barcelona fans will be cheering on Lewandowski as he chases this milestone.

But the club must also brace for the financial impact that could come with it.
