Bayern Munich to receive bonus pay from Barcelona for Robert Lewandowski’s scoring rate

He might not exactly be lighting the world afire as much as he did during his time at Bayern Munich but make no mistake about it: Robert Lewandowski is still scoring goals for Barcelona at a decent rate.

The Polish ace made the move to the Catalan club from Bayern in the summer of 2022 after it had become clear he wanted to experience a new footballing challenge away from the Rekordmeister. He signed for Barcelona for a fee of around 45-million euros in the summer of 2022, and while his first season was not exactly covered in glory, he has been able to have multiple seasons of 20+ goals for the Blaugrana.

Per information from Sport Bild (via @iMiaSanMia), Bayern is set to receive another 1.25 million euros from Barcelona as a part of the deal from when he made the transfer that stipulated Bayern would get the bonus for every season the striker scores more than 25 goals. Bayern are owed the fee from last season, as well, as Lewandowski has tallied 25 goals from all competitions this season and tallied 33 last season. He reached his 25th goal of the season in Barcelona’s recent 3-0 win over Rayo Vallecano on the 19th as the club is trying to secure their second-place finish behind Real Madrid in La Liga.

The same contractual agreement between Bayern and Barcelona remains intact for the next two years as well, as his current Barcelona contract runs through June 2026 with an option to extend for one more year after that. Barring a significant dip in form and/or a bad injury crisis, it would be safe to bet that Lewandowski would reach the 25-goal mark in at least one of the next two years coming up, especially if Barcelona brings in some attacking reinforcements to play alongside him during the summer transfer window.

When all is said and done, if Lewandowski hits the 25-goal mark in each of his remaining seasons at Barcelona, Bayern will have received 50-million euros and change for his transfer between the two clubs. This will have included the fixed transfer fee and the bonus-based add-ons in the contract.
