Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has committed his future to the club by signing a contract extension valid until 30 June 2023.

The 31-year-old, whose previous deal was due to expire in June 2021, has been in fine form already this season, scoring all five of Bayern's league goals so far.

"Bayern has become my sporting home," Lewandowski told the club's official website. "As a family, we like Munich a lot. I'm convinced we'll achieve a lot together over the coming years. 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."

"For me, Robert is the best centre forward in the world and he's been an important pillar of our team for years now," said Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

"We're therefore very happy that he'll continue to play for Bayern for a long time yet. We're sure Robert will help us achieve our lofty ambitions this season and in the coming years."

Lewandowski joined Bayern from Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund ahead of the 2014/15 campaign and has since scored 197 goals in 246 competitive outings for the Reds.
