Robert Lewandowski has been presented as Barcelona’s new No.9 following his €50 million  transfer from Bayern Munich.

The Poland international has inherited the iconic jersey from Memphis Depay, who is being strongly linked with a move away from Camp Nou.

Lewandowski turns 34 later this month, but dismissed any suggestion that his best years are behind him at his first press conference at Barca’s stadium on Thursday, having failed to score in his first three appearances for the club in pre-season.

He said:

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

Barca managed to sign Lewandowski despite the ongoing financial issues which have overshadowed the team’s performances on the pitch over the past year.
