Robert Lewandowski does not share good relationship with Barcelona star as reports of 'ups and downs' emerge – Sportskeeda
Robert Lewandowski reportedly does not have a good relationship with Barcelona teammate Memphis Depay. The striker is happy to have got the #9 shirt from the Dutchman but does not feel a connection on the pitch.
El Nacional’s top story of the day comes from Barcelona, and they claim there is a rift between Lewandowski and Depay. The Polish striker is reportedly not fond of the former Manchester United forward, who stayed put despite having offers to leave.
Lewandowski wants to lead the attack, and the report claims the former Bayern Munich star wants to link up with Pedri, Gavi, Ferran Torres, and Ansu Fati on the pitch. El Nacional adds that Depay was deliberately omitted by Lewandowski when asked about his favorite teammates recently.
Depay has admitted that he had offers to leave Barcelona in the summer but chose to fight for his place at Camp Nou. He has not named any clubs but confirmed that he did have offers on his table in the summer.
Speaking to the press (via GBeNeFN), Depay said:
Juventus were reportedly the side that came the closest to signing Depay in the summer. The Italian side had made a move to sign the forward but the move fell through despite Depay agreeing to a contract termination with Barcelona.
