The transfer of Robert Lewandowski to FC Barcelona is officially announced. Meanwhile, the Catalans’ fan shop is experiencing a huge rush for the Pole’s jerseys – with consequences.
Robert Lewandowski has triggered a wave of euphoria at FC Barcelona.
After a long period of suspense, the Catalans have officially announced the signing of the Polish striker. Now, however, the club is reaching its limits in another area with this transfer.
Countless jerseys bearing Lewandowski’s name have already been sold in a Barca fan shop, which has apparently meant that supporters are now unable to purchase the object of desire at all.
The crazy background: Due to the large number of sales, one fan shop no longer has the letter “W” in stock – this was recorded by the fan account 9CampNou. Lewandowski is also said to have created an acute “W” shortage in at least one other shop.
According to information from the Spanish journalist Gerard Romero, the Catalans are expecting around 20 million euros in additional revenue from the coveted Lewy merchandise.
After his performance in the USA, enquiries for a Lewy jersey could shoot up further.
