What will be Robert Lewandowski's future? Oliver Kahn, CEO of Bayern Munich, talek about the issue: "As of today, Lewandowski has a contract with us for another season. We are in contact with him and we want him to stay here as long as possible.
Some believe that negotiations are like in managerial games, where you click a button and the players extend the contract. Lewandowski with us has become a world player and a forward capable of scoring 30/40 goals per season.
Then, it is true that some players at some point may think they have won everything and achieved everything in a club. It takes time to convince him to stay here and we must also look carefully at the financial aspect: we all know that we have been coming from two very difficult years and Bayern have also suffered."
"We would be stupid if we let a player go away with thirty or forty goals a year. We are in contact with the player's entourage to talk about his future and we will be in the coming weeks too. Lewandowski has a contract until 2023 and will definitely stay with us for another season."
Considered the greatest Polish footballer of all time, as well as one of the strongest center-forward of any era, he is one of the most successful players in the Bundesliga, and one of the most prolific goalscorers in football history.

He is also the third highest scorer in UEFA Champions League history, behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, as well as the player who has scored the most goals in his first 100 appearances in the same competition (81).
In 2010, after winning a Polish championship (2009-10), a Polish Cup (2008-09) and a Polish Super Cup (2009) with Lech Poznań, he moved to Borussia Dortmund, with whom he won two German championships. (2010-11, 2011-12), a German Cup (2011-12) and a German Super Cup (2013).
After four seasons, he moved to Bayern Munich, with whom he won seven consecutive German championships (from 2015 to 2021), three German Cups (2015-16, 2018-19, 2019-20), five German Super Cups (2016, 2017, 2018, 2020, 2021), one UEFA Champions League (2019-20), one UEFA Super Cup (2020) and one FIFA Club World Cup (2020).
In the 2020-2021 season he won the Golden Boot and again in 2021 he was elected forward of the year by France Football and finished second in the Balon d'Or ranking.
