British Sky TV reports that the Polish player will prolong his agreement with Bayern until 2023. Lewandowski, who is currently on holiday, is expected to sign the contract negotiated by his manager, Pini Zahavi when he reports back on duty.

“I have not signed the contract yet, we are in the middle of negotiations, it’s going well, but I have not put my signature on the agreement yet,” Lewandowski told “Sportowe Fakty” sport news website. However, it is very likely that the negotiations will be concluded with signing the new contract by the player.

Although in previous years the Polish striker said wanted to leave Munich, this year the situation is different. Lewandowski now desires more stability and peace, which he has in Bavaria.

The reports say that the Polish player will also get a pay rise. Now he earns around EUR 15 mln a year but is expected to get more. The current contract is valid until 2021.

Robert Lewandowski joined FC Bayern Munich in 2014. In 159 matches he has scored 128 goals and won three titles of the Top Goalscorer of German Bundesliga, the highest tier of the football championship in Germany.
