The signing of Robert Lewandowski had some problems that delayed his incorporation to the first team of Xavi Hernández. The footballer could not debut in front of the Inter of Miami although if it will do it this Saturday in The Vegas in front of the Real Madrid, in what it will be the second Barcelona commitment in this turns by the United States. The Pole has been the signing more mediático that has done the club in this market, what created a high expectation with all the concerning his arrival.
However, the Barcelona lived near of 48 hours of anxiety after the constant obstacles that hampered the debut and presentation of the player. In principle, his announcement had to do effective the Monday with an act of welcome to the midday beside the trainers and students of the Barça Academy, but some details finished for postponing everything until the Wednesday in the morning, several hours after the victory (0-6) of the culés on the local group.
In this period of time there was an enormous embarrassment between the organisers and the workers of the club, since they did not know the reasons by which all was demorando. The explanation, according to desvela the newspaper 'SPORT', resume to several fiscal subjects that prevented that the '9' signed his agreement to time although the Bayer of Munich already had closed all the fringes of his traspaso.
The signature had to effect the Sunday in the afternoon or the Monday in the morning, but the tax of heritage, valid in Catalonia but no in other places, almost throws to the fret the operation. This because the worker that resides in the City Condal has to declare his heritage and tributar thus, what supposed him to Lewandowski pay 2.5% additional in taxes. It is thus that did not train with all the group from his arrival, because it found resolving the situation.
With the fringes resolved, everything aims to that the debut of 'Lewy' will be in the Classical in front of the picture merengue and Xavi could have an eleven 'of gala' in which all his incorporations form part of the team title. The commitment carried out to the 5.00 hours in the Allegiant Stadium of Nevada, house of the Raiders of the NFL, with some full terracings due to the fact that all the entrances find at present exhausted. The 'crack' could use the dorsal '9' of Memphis Depay, a historical number for a player of his category.
