Barcelona star Robert Lewandowski reportedly rejected a summer move to Saudi Arabia.

The expanding Saudi Pro League has dominated the summer transfer window with their spending sending shockwaves across Europe.

With four teams now backed by the Saudi Public Investment Fund (PIF) star names have flocked to the Middle East as part of mega money contracts.

However, despite the growing trend of players accepting moves to Saudi Pro League clubs, certain names have rejected a switch away from Europe.

As per reports from transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Lewandowski was approached over a possible move away from Catalonia, alongside Manchester City captain Kevin De Bruyne.
