Barcelona striker Robert Lewandowski has affirmed his commitment to the La Liga champions despite rumours linking him to the Saudi Pro League.
Numerous European football stars, including some of his Barcelona teammates, have made moves to Saudi Arabia, notably Cristiano Ronaldo, who joined Al-Nassr.
While several players have opted for the Saudi Pro League, others like Lewandowski, Mohamed Salah, and Kylian Mbappe have chosen to remain with their current clubs.
The Saudi Pro League has attracted significant investments, with the Premier League being the only league to outspend it during the summer transfer window.
Lewandowski on SPL links
Lewandowski, the ex-Bayern Munich forward, has expressed his indifference to the speculations connecting him to Saudi Arabia and has affirmed his contentment at Barcelona.
“I don’t even think about it (going to Saudi Arabia). I’m super happy in Barcelona, in the team, in the city, with my family. As a person I am happy,” the Poland striker reiterated via 90min.
The 35-year-old disclosed that he had contemplated a move to the MLS before the Coronavirus pandemic, but at present, his sole concentration is on Barcelona.
“Before the coronavirus pandemic, the idea of MLS was firmly in my head, but somehow I changed my mind afterwards. After the Barcelona chapter, it’s hard to imagine going there.”
