Lewandowski made Depay “swallow back tears”

According to a source from Gerard Romero, Barcelona have decided to transfer Memphis Depay’s  Number 9 shirt  to Robert Lewandowski. The debut of the Polish superstar at Camp Nou is expected to see a record in attendance. At that time, Lewandowski will be introduced to the official shirt with the number 9.

This shirt was originally worn by Luis Suarez, then passed to Martin Braithwaite for the 2020/21 season. The Dane only wore it for one season before Depay took over. The Dutch star was Barca’s top scorer last year. But when Xavi appeared, Depay had to compete with many other strikers.


Now, with the arrivals of Raphinha and Lewandowski, Depay has been asked to leave the Camp Nou. Even if he refused to leave, Barca was willing to unilaterally strip the player of his shirt number. There are many factors that make president Laporta want the number 9 to go to Lewandowski, but certainly the most important reason is commercial nature. People are so used to the famous RL9 icon at Bayern Munich.

Barca used to give iconic numbers like 10 to Ansu Fati, number 8 to Pedri, while number 6 is expected to go to Gavi soon. Giving Lewandowski the number 9 will help the Catalan “giant” increase shirt sales exponentially, especially abroad. The former Bayern Munich striker is hugely popular in Poland and parts of Germany, where shirt sales are sure to skyrocket. So Barca is ready to make Depay “swallow back tears” for Lewandowski.
