The iconic jersey was passed down from Memphis Depay, who was rumored to be leaving Camp Nou after Lewandowski’s signing, to the top scorer in Europe.

Even though Lewandowski didn’t score for the team in the preseason, he refuted any notion that his greatest years were behind him at his first press conference at Barca’s stadium on Thursday. Lewandowski will turn 34 later this month.

“I think my age is not important right now, it’s just a number. I feel better than when I was 29,” he said.

He added, “I know that Barcelona was not going through an easy time, but when I spoke with Joan and heard about the project and the way they wanted to follow, I thought that the best thing was to make the jump to Barcelona.”

He also spoke on the rivalry with La Liga champions Real Madrid.

“I’m not thinking about Real Madrid or Benzema, he’s an extraordinary striker, but for me, the most important thing is to win with Barcelona, not to beat him,” he said.
