Barcelona embarrassingly run out of letter ‘W’ following Lewandowski transfer

Barcelona have taken a massive L after running out of 'W's to fit on Robert Lewandowski shirts following his signing.

The Spanish club have been hit with huge financial trouble over the past few years after a number of questionable transfer decisions including over £100million spent on both Philippe Coutinho and Antoine Griezmann, who both flopped. A mammoth wage bill saw Lionel Messi depart last summer for Paris Saint-Germain after they could not renew his contract.

However, they have seemingly forgotten about their perilous situation this summer by splashing the cash under Xavi. Lewandowski is the latest arrival at the Nou Camp, costing them £43m after a protracted transfer saga this year.

The 33-year-old has penned a four-year deal with the Blaugrana, joining the likes of Raphinha, Andreas Christensen and Franck Kessie as new signings. Fans are understandably over the moon to land such a prestigious striker – yet were left disappointed when they went to buy a Lewandowski shirt in the club store.

That is because their printing press has ran out of the letter 'W', which might prove a problem when making Lewandowski shirts. A fan took a video from inside the shop asking for more details on what has gone wrong.

A voice can be heard saying: "Why can't we buy jerseys with Lewandowski?" The store worker replied: "Because we don't have the letter 'W' and because he has two 'W's in his name, we ran out."

For a club seemingly trying to buy itself out of debt, it is not the greatest look when there is a lack of 'W' letters. However, Lewandowski is just one of many players that have been desperate to make the move to Barca despite their financial situation – with the likes of Raphinha, Jules Kounde and Frenkie de Jong all involved in transfer chases but wanting the Nou Camp only.

"I'm finally here. I'm delighted to be at Barca," Lewandowski said. "The last few days have been very long, but the deal is done and now I can focus on a new chapter and challenge in my life.

"I've always wanted to play in La Liga and for the big clubs. I'm here to help Barca get back to the top and win as many titles as possible."
