Fans Think Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang Has 'Given Up' After Spotting His Reaction To Robert Lewandowski's Arrival At Barcelona

Robert Lewandowski has joined up with his new Barcelona teammates on the club's pre-season tour of the United States. Watch the video below:

Lewandowski, 33, will move to Barcelona from Bayern Munich in a £42.5m deal having already reached an agreement in principle to join the Catalan giants.

The Poland international, who scored an incredible 344 goals in 375 matches during his time with Bayern, was unveiled by Barcelona on Monday in Miami, Florida and is poised to sign a four-year deal once the transfer has been finalised.

After posing for photographs and videos at a lifeguard station on a beach in the city, Lewandowski met up with his new teammates while they were eating a meal together.

His arrival could spell bad news for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who only joined Barcelona on a free transfer from Arsenal in January.

Lewandowski is widely expected to become the first-choice striker under Xavi and Aubaeyang didn't appear to be too happy with the increased competition for places.

In a video released by Barcelona of Lewandowski meeting his new teammates, Aubameyang can be seen staring at the new arrival.

"The look on Aubameyang's face. He's already given up," wrote one fan on Twitter.

Another added: "Anyone noticed how Auba looked at Lewa?"

To which another fan replied: "He knows his place in the team is finished."

However, a later video showed the pair sharing hands and hugging, suggesting Aubameyang was not as concerned with Lewandowski's arrival as it had initially appeared.

Aubameyang impressed for Barcelona last season, scoring 13 goals in 23 games in all competitions, but now faces stiff competition from Lewandowski, who has vowed to help the club challenge for major honours this season.

"Finally I am here and I am very happy to join Barcelona. The last few days were very long days but in the end the deal was done so now I am going to focus on a new chapter in my life and a new challenge," said Lewandowski.

"But I am still the guy who wants to win, not only the game but also the titles so I hope from the beginning of the season we will begin winning and go for the titles during the season and at the end of the season.

"I always wanted to play in LaLiga, I always wanted to play for the biggest clubs. It is the next step. Also for my private life, it was a new challenge. I know that it's time to get Barcelona back on track and I am here to help them get back to the top and to winning as many titles as possible.

"I have been speaking with Xavi and I know that from the beginning I know his mind and his ideas are going in a good way. For me, he made it easy for me to come to Barcelona.

"I am a player that wants to play and to win and with Xavi that is very possible. He knows exactly how to coach Barcelona because he was an amazing player and now he is a very good coach with an amazing future.

"Goals are always a high. I always want to win, not only the games but also the titles. We have so many players with amazing quality and we can achieve a lot this season." 

Lewandowski could make his Barcelona debut when they play David Beckham's Inter Miami in the first match of their United States tour on Tuesday.
