Pep Guardiola was influential in Lewandowski's decision to join Barcelona

Robert Lewandowski made a move to Barcelona this summer.

The Poland striker signed a four-year deal with the Catalan giants after ending his eight-year spell with the Bavarians.

Barcelona are yet to register the player as the new La Liga season begins this weekend.

Lewandowski also discussed Guardiola’s influence on his decision to join Camp Nou this summer.

He told to Diario Sport: “Guardiola’s philosophy and his style for caring for and managing the team was like bringing Barcelona to Bayern Munich.

“Xavi is very similar to Guardiola. They were both sixes and they worked together. They think about football in the same way. With that in mind, Barcelona was the only option for me. It was great preparation.

“I didn’t talk to Guardiola before signing. But when I was with him at Bayern it was like a great preparation to come to Barcelona one day.

“All the staff were Spanish and there were eight Spanish players. During that period I had a very good relationship with Thiago and Javi Martinez. Both of them congratulated me when I signed for Barcelona.”
