Robert Lewandowski has signed a two-year contract extension to keep him at Bayern Munich until 2023.

The striker has scored 197 goals for the club since joining from Borussia Dortmund in 2014. He is their third all-time record scorer, behind only Gerd Muller and Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

The Poland international told the club website: “FC Bayern has become my sporting home. 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.”

The 31-year-old has won the Bundesliga title in each of his five seasons at Bayern, but has yet to taste Champions League success.

Chief executive Rummenigge said: “For me, Robert is the world’s best centre-forward and he’s been a mainstay of our team for years. So 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.”
