It's official. After Franck Ribery signed a contract extension, Bayern Munich and Robert Lewandowski have agreed to a five-year contract extension as well that will keep the Polish striker playing at the Allianz Arena until the end of the 2020/2021 season.

Lewandowski on extending his contract with the Bavarians:

"I'm very happy the negotiations yielded a positive result and that I'll stay at Bayern for a few more years. We still have ambitious goals."

FC Bayern München AG chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge on Lewandowski’s deal:

"I'm happy we've secured the services of one of the world's best centre-forwards over the long term. We now have certainty that another key player will wear the FC Bayern shirt in the coming years."

Deputy chairman Jan-Christian Dreesen added:

"We had intense, but always respectful and fair discussions, so I'd like to thank Robert Lewandowski's agents for the constructive negotiations."

With Bayern Munich, Robert Lewandowski has won the Bundesliga title two times, the DFB Cup and the DFL Supercup.
