Bayern Munich President Uli Hoeness has revealed that star striker Robert Lewandowski has been offered a lucrative contract to extend his stay at the Allianz Arena.
Lewandowski’s current deal runs out in June 2019, and he has been attracting a lot of interest from some of the world’s biggest clubs following his goalscoring heroics over the past few seasons.
The Poland striker even topped the Bundesliga scoring charts last season with 30 goals, and this term, he has already grabbed another 11 in 14 league fixtures so far.

As president of the Bavarians, Hoeness looks privy to the details of the deal offered to Lewandowski, and he has claimed the numbers involved are clear proof that Bayern are desperate to keep hold of the star forward.
“It’s just up to him now – he’s got an offer,” Hoeness told Bild.
“And it is not like Bayern don’t want to keep him. I know some of the figures and certainly if you didn’t want (to extend his contract), it would look different to this.”
The Poland international scored 74 times in 131 games for former club Borussia Dortmund, and has twice been named as Bundesliga’s top scorer.
Lewandowski seems to have regained at least the credibility to cause Bundesliga defences significant damage yet again, if not the Midas touch which placed him into history in September 2016.
The Bundesliga champions returned to the league summit on Saturday with a 5-0 victory against Wolfsburg, and took advantage of Leipzig’s first defeat to replace the promoted side as Lewandowski and Robben starred and scored.
