Per a report by kicker, Bayern Munich striker and Poland international Robert Lewandowski would like to extend his contract with the club. Lewandowski’s current deal runs through June 30, 2021 and both sides appear to want to make an extension happen.

The length of time, however, is where the sides are differing. The Bayern front office would like to add one more year to the 30-year-old’s contract, while Lewandowski is seeking a multi-year extension.

After the cup final of FC Bayern against RB Leipzig on May 25th, personnel details will be discussed at the Munich club. This also applies to the contract situation with Robert Lewandowski. The Polish striker has a contract with the record champion until June 30, 2021, which the Munich team would like to extend early by one year. However, the 30-year-old has another length of time in mind. Lewandowski is currently receiving inquiries from Manchester United and Paris St. Germain.

One of the interesting subplots to this situation is Bayern’s reported interest in RB Leipzig striker Timo Werner. Does Bayern’s pursuit of Werner have any effect on what type of contract extension the club would offer Lewandowski? That remains to be seen. In addition, Jann-Fiete Arp, considered by some to be a “striker of the future” for Bayern, is expected to arrive from Hamburger SV this summer as well.

In typical fashion, both Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are interested in bringing in Lewandowski, who has 38 goals and 13 assists in 45 games across all competitions this season, should these negotiations go sideways.

Just last month, it was reported that Lewandowski was close to inking a contract extension with Bayern, but there has been no movement since that point.
