Berlin, Sep 22: German football club Bayern Munich offered its Polish striker Robert Lewandowski to extend his contract until 2021 to become the club’s highest-paid player, according to German magazine Sport Bild.
Lewandowski’s potential salary will exceed that of Thomas Muller, estimated at around 14 million euros ($15.6 million) per year,reports Efe on Wednesday.
The Polish player’s current contract expires in 2019, but amid interest demonstrated by other European giants to sign the goal machine, it seems that Bayern wants to cut them off as soon as possible. The player’s agents hinted at the possibility of his move to Real Madrid last season and he looked open to the idea.
However, the arrival of Italian coach Carlo Ancelotti at the Allianz Are, apparently changed Lewandowski’s mind.
The German magazine related that Ancelotti called up the Polish striker during the summer vacation, and confirmed to Lewandowski that he will remain his first choice when it comes to leading the attacking lines. IANS
