Busquets hopes Lewa will be LaLiga’s signing of the season

Sergio Busquets is hopeful Robert Lewandowski will prove to be LaLiga’s season’s signing after he joined the Blaugrana from Bayern Munich.

Lewandowski sealed his long-awaited move to Camp Nou on Monday, having expressed his desire to leave Bayern after scoring 50 goals in all competitions for the Bundesliga champions last season.

The 33-year-old has finished as the Bundesliga’s top goalscorer in seven seasons, equalling the record set by fellow Bayern excellent Gerd Muller, and will now spearhead Barca’s bid for a first league title since 2018-19.

Speaking to Inter Miami’s media channels ahead of Barca’s pre-season friendly against the Major League Soccer side.

Both Busquets and new team-mate Andreas Christensen heaped praise on the Poland striker.

Asked whether the capture of Lewandowski represented LaLiga’s signing of the season, Busquets said:

“Well, at the media level, because of his name, it could be. But before starting any competition and before playing matches, it is not that useful to value this.

“Hopefully, we will say this when the season is over and after he had a great season individually because that will mean that the collective also went well.

“Hopefully, it will be like this.”

Former Chelsea defender Christensen has joined Lewandowski in moving to Camp Nou during the transfer window.

And he believes the experience of the eight-time Bundesliga champion will be invaluable for Xavi’s side.

Christensen said:

“It’s obvious that he’s got the qualities, he’s won many trophies, he’s got the winning mentality that we need.

“So I think he brings all these qualities. I think it’s pretty obvious what they are. So I don’t think I need to mention it, but yeah, everyone’s just happy that he’s here.

“He can push us, and you know, share his experiences. So I think it’s just a good thing for the team.”

Meanwhile, Busquets has just one year remaining on his contract with the Catalan giants and refused to rule out a future move to MLS after claiming to have followed the league when former team-mate David Villa joined New York City.

“I have always liked this league a lot since David Villa came to play here,” the 34-year-old added. “I started following the league when I could because of the time difference.

“I’m not dismissing anything. Everyone knows that this is my last year of the contract.

“But I am focused on finishing well this season, which is full of things at both club and national team level.

“My focus is to enjoy, compete to the maximum and show my best level, and in the future, we will see.

“I have always said that I like coming to the US and their league a lot. But the future is still unknown because there isn’t anything yet, and it is too early.”
