and Barcelona confirmed that they have reached an agreement worth €50m.

Lewandowski has established himself as one of the best players in Europe and his intention to depart the Bundesliga side shocked many.

The Poland striker has now explained the reason behind his move.

He told Bild:

"I wanted to play in another league than the Bundesliga, I had made that decision for a long time. But I have to emphasize: It was the most difficult decision of my life. I wanted to live somewhere else, discover something new with my family. My daughter Klara will start school next year, we had to make a decision. And that decision was that it should be something new. If not now, then that would probably never have been possible. It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

“Barcelona had problems last season. But the club has incredible potential and has made good transfers now. I think the club is on the right track - back to the top. My goal is very clear to get up there with Barça and win trophies!”

The Bundesliga giants were confident that they did not want to sell the player earlier. His departure has soured his relationship with the club, but Lewandowski revealed that everyone got what they wanted.

On his exit, he added:

"I said that both sides did things that were unnecessary. But maybe certain things had to happen for the change to be possible in the end. I think both sides are happy now. Bayern gets a lot of money, I can go to Barcelona.

"It's been a long, difficult road, but I think that in the end we can all look each other in the eye."
