The Poland striker is the marquee arrival at Camp Nou this summer - but the club were unable to sell strips with his name on for a bizarre reason

Good news for Barcelona fans - the club shop has been restocked Robert Lewandowski's jersey and you can get your hands on it after an excruciating wait.

The Poland striker has been the marquee signing for the Blaugrana in this summer transfer window and unsurprisingly the demand for his shirt has already hit the roof.

However, the Nike store at Camp Nou had previously run out of stock - because they did not have the letter W to put on their strips for fans!

'Lewandowski' - the W issue resolved

Lewandowski has got two 'w's' in his name, which caught the store out.

In a video posted on Instagram, an employee of the store was seen explaining to a fan the reason behind the crisis.

"We don't have the letters 'W'. And because he has two 'W's' in his name, we have run out (of stock)," he stated.

However, in a video posted by the club on Wednesday, they revealed that the letter 'W' has been restocked and are once again selling shirts with Lewandowski printed on the back.

When will Lewandowski make his Barcelona debut?

Barcelona rubber-stamped the signing of Lewandowski on Tuesday just hours before their pre-season friendly with Inter Miami.

He took part in the warm-up with his new team-mates but did not make his debut.

The Catalan club will return to action on Sunday against bitter rivals Real Madrid, and there is a probability that Xavi might use Lewandowski on that day.
