The Poland international, who has been linked with moves to Real Madrid or Chelsea in the past, will be almost 35 by the time his contract expires. He has not ruled out a move to MLS before retiring from football.
“FC Bayern have become my sporting home,” Lewandowski said. “Besides, my family and I are happily settled in Munich. I’m convinced we’ll achieve a lot in the next few years.
“FC Bayern are one of the three biggest clubs in the world, and we have an outstanding team. I’m proud to be part of this club.”

Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge added: “For me, Robert is the world’s best centre-forward, and he’s been a mainstay of our team for years.
“We’re extremely pleased he’ll continue to play for FC Bayern for a long time. We’re certain that together with Robert we’ll achieve our ambitious goals in the upcoming season and in the years to come.”
“You can feel [the] club and fans are dreaming of Champions League,” Lewandowski said in a recent Sport Bild interview. “Bayern have the same goals as I have: Win titles and also the Champions League.”
“Maybe I can reach the 300-goal mark,” Lewandowski said in Sport Bild. “I want to continue to play football at the top level for the next five, six seasons.”
By adding another one against Mainz at the weekend he could equal a 23-year-old league record held by Jonathan Akpoborie, who scored Hansa Rostock’s first six goals in the 1996-97 season. However, the long-retired Nigeria international needed six match days to reach the tally.
