Billionaire clubs from around the Premier League and La Liga are set to throw large sums of euros in front of Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski. However, Bayern's recent actions have shown the Poland international that the club is willing to spend and spend big to keep the best players at the Allianz Arena.

"I know that there is interest from abroad," Lewandowski told Sportbild. "But I can very well imaging putting pen to paper on a new deal here because of the super team and the good cooperation, because the club is known to honor good performances."

Lewandowski has been on another level this season. Through the first 31 matches of the season in all competitions, Lewandowski has banged in 31 goals. If Lewandowski were to leave the club, there is no chance that Bayern would be able to find another forward at the same level of production as Lewandowski. The reported extension will raise Lewandowski's salary to Müller-territory around €15 million a season.

"I've noticed how the club has prepared for the future," he added. "The new deals for Boateng and Muller were a good sign that FC Bayern can keep their star players despite the money in England."

Bayern moved this winter to extend the contracts of Xabi Alonso, Jerome Boateng, Javi Martinez, and Thomas Muller. The one that stood out the most was the new contract of Müller who had just signed an extension in the summer of 2014. However, with the English sniffing around him, Bayern knew they had to move to give him more money and lock him up for another year or two.

The combination of Lewandowski and Müller has been incredibly difficult for Bayern opponents to stop this season, and the Bavarians will be hoping to ride on the back of the two great goalscorers on the way to another triple this season.
