Robert Lewandowski has signed a new deal to keep him at Bayern Munich.

According to German sports outlet Bild, Lewandowski has penned a new long term deal keeping him at the club until 2023.

There was talk early in the summer of the Polish international, being unhappy a Bayern.

He felt the club were not ambitious enough in the transfer market. He believed that this was a factor in the lack of European success.

Lewandowski even publicly claimed that the team would struggle if adequate replacements for Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery were not found.

As we saw recently when players from within the club speak out against the Bavarian giants and its policy, it usually means the end. Just ask Renato Sanches.

But this is Robert Lewandowski.

A player that has already scored 3 goals in three games this season. Last season scored 40 in 47. A player that boasts a Bayern Munich record of 194 goals and 47 assists in 245 games.

When he spoke the powers that be at Bayern Munich sat up and listened.

Since his comments, the club has signed, world cup runner up Ivan Perisic from Inter and Brazillian superstar Coutinho from Barcelona.

It is believed, that the signing of Perisic went a long way to convincing him the club was listening, but the signing of Coutinho convinced the club were serious.

The new deal will keep him at the club until he is 35 years of age. This will almost certainly see off any potential suitors from the likes of the Premier League or La Liga.

There has been the persistent talk of interest from Manchester United back in his days at Borussia Dortmund.

Who would not want a striker who up until that point in his career had scored 104 goals with 42 assists in 187 games?

Then in recent transfer windows, there have been rumours of a reunion with Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.

Lewandowski is desperate to add the Champions League to his impressive trophy haul.

Perhaps this new commitment to Bayern Munich means he is convinced that they have what it takes to now go all the way.
