There is a very real prospect Barcelona striker Robert Lewandowski finishes his career in Major League Soccer.

That’s according to Charlotte FC’s Karol Swiderski, who plays with Lewandowski in the Poland national team. 

Swiderski has settled well with Charlotte and Lewandowski has been picking his brains on life in MLS as the 34-year-old considers what the future holds.

‘Yes, he asked me sometimes,’ Swiderski said of Lewandowski, as quoted by MLSsoccer.com. 

‘I’m not sure [if he moves], but what I can see when I spoke with him, maybe he will want to go one day to MLS to finish his career here.’

He added: ‘I’m waiting for this moment, so I hope he will come here, because he’s really a legend, [not only] in Poland but even I think in Europe. He’s scored many, many goals, so it would be nice to meet him in MLS.’ 

Last year, before leaving Bayern Munich for Barcelona, Lewandowski was coy when asked if he could one day ply his trade in the United States. 

‘Playing in the USA? I don’t know because I don’t know what does it mean for me and when,’ he told CBS Sports.

‘For sure, I know a lot about the MLS because a few Polish players and also German players was playing there, and they talk to me about the life but also about MLS and they make every year a step up. 

The Poland striker is under contract with Barcelona until June 2026, with the option of a further year. 

But Lewandowski has seen former teammates like Bastian Schweinsteiger, who he played with at Bayern, enjoy stints in MLS. 

Schweinsteiger played for Chicago Fire between 2017 and 2019.

For now he is picking the brains of Swiderski, who has his own ambitions of testing himself in Europe again one day. 

Swiderski joined Charlotte last year as their first Designated Player in a reported $5million deal from PAOK in Greece. 

He bagged 10 goals and six assists for Charlotte in their inaugural MLS season.
