ROBERT LEWANDOWSKI'S £216,000-a-week Barcelona contract has a termination clause inserted, according to reports.
But his wages CHANGE every season throughout his four-year stay at the club.
Lewandowski, 34, joined Barca from Bayern Munich in a £42.5million transfer this summer after declaring his desire to quit the German champions.
He put pen to paper on a deal at the Nou Camp until 2026.
And now the finer details of the paperwork have been revealed by Cadena SER Catuluna.
Incredibly, the Poland star will get paid a net £8.6m in the current 2022-23 season – which works out as £165,000 per week after tax.

This will jump to £11.2m (£215,000 per week) next term and then £13.8m (£265,000 per week) in 2024-25 before dropping back to £11.2m in the final year, by which time he will be nearly 38.
Any club wanting to buy Lewandowski during the course of this deal would need to trigger his £430m release clause.
However, Barca have the option to terminate his contract early under special circumstances.
If Lewandowski plays less than 55 per cent of matches in the 2024-25 season, the club will be able to rip up his deal and release him.

There are also a series of bonuses in the contract including up to an extra £500,000 should he win LaLiga during his spell in Spain and £1.72m if he secures a league, Copa del Rey and Champions League treble.
However, there are no bonuses for only winning the Copa del Rey.
Lewandowski is the main striker in Xavi's squad, especially after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's £12m transfer to Chelsea on deadline day.
And he has made a lightning start to life at the Nou Camp.
Lewandowski failed to score against Rayo Vallecano on the opening day but then struck doubles against Real Sociedad and Real Valladolid plus another goal against Sevilla to take his tally to five in four matches.
