“I’m totally committed to the club, I can certainly see myself finishing my career with Bayern,” he continued.
Lewandowski has a great season with Bayern, leading the team with 22 goals in all tournaments, leading the Champions League with eight goals, leaving five goals to break Claudio Pizarro’s number and becoming the Bundesliga’s top scorer in the history of the Bundesliga.
“I plan to play at the top level until at least the age of 35. I feel that I have started the best period in my career as an attacker,” he said, adding: “I am mature enough and have a lot of experience.”
“If I’m healthy, I’ll play in Europe for as long as possible and then I’ll move,” he said.
