Robert Lewandowski makes bold statement

“Fear? No, of course”: Robert Lewandowski makes bold statement ahead of Kylian Mbappe’s impending Real Madrid transfer

Lewandowski insists his side won’t fear Los Blancos even if Mbappe arrives

Barcelona star Robert Lewandowski is defiant in the face of Kylian Mbappe’s impending arrival to Real Madrid, saying that he and his team won’t fear Los Blancos even if the transfer comes to pass. The Polish ace even reiterated his faith in the Blaugrana’s ability to work together as a unit.

After announcing that he is going to leave PSG this summer, rumors linking Mbappe to Real Madrid are rife, with an official announcement expected sooner rather than later. The Frenchman has long been courted by the Spanish giants, who came agonizingly close to snapping him up in 2022 before Mbappe’s then-world record new deal with the Parisians.

But now, the move could finally materialize, with no other club in sight. Mbappe’s arrival would make Carlo Ancelotti’s side even stronger, especially in the attack, as the World Cup winner promises plenty of goals.

That, however, doesn’t concern Lewandowski, who said this when asked if they would an Mbappe-led Madrid side:

“It’s not official yet, but it seems that all roads lead to Real Madrid. Fear? No, of course, he is an incredible player and if he goes to Real Madrid, it will be a very strong team. But our mentality has to be that no matter how good players you have if we are a team and work together, we can beat you.

“We have to be ready from the first game and the first minutes because Real Madrid will surely need time. They will not play well at the beginning and lose points, and we have to take advantage of it. Not to catch them but to be ahead of them. Like two seasons ago, in which there were games that we couldn’t win but that we didn’t lose.”

Having been beaten to the La Liga title this season by Real Madrid, Barcelona can expect another tough competition from their El Clasico rivals next season, as they will be armed with one of the best forwards in the world right now.

Real Madrid on course for La Liga and Champions League double

By the time Kylian Mbappe’s transfer is announced, Real Madrid could already complete the La Liga and Champions League double. With the domestic title in the bag, the European cup is next in sight for Carlo Ancelotti’s swashbuckling side, who take on Borussia Dortmund in the finals at Wembley on 1 June. On paper, Los Blancos are the overwhelming favorites, considering both, their head-to-head record to Der BVB and their record in these finals, but could there be a surprise?
