While Robert Lewandowski’s future at Bayern Munich is still unclear, the striker has given updates on his future plans in football.

In an interview with the French television station „Téléfoot“, Robert Lewandowski spoke about his career plans. Not only did it become clear how long the Pole would like to remain in professional football, but also how he would deal with the rumors of a possible transfer to Paris Saint-Germain.

“I want to play for many more years, at least five years! When I start declining in 2 years, I might think about retirement, but not right now,“ said Bayern’s top performer. 

So are the Parisiens a topic for the 33-year-old? He did not want to comment on this as he is „still under contract with FC Bayern until 2023″ and therefore summarizes: „I’m not thinking about it yet.“

„We’re among the favorites for the Champions League“

‚Lewy‘ also talks about the current season at Bayern Munich. He still believes in achieving great things with his team in the Champions League: “We are still among the favorites for the title. If we stay in shape, we have a great chance of winning.“ 

In addition to the Champions League, the Bavarians are still in the race for the Bundesliga and are leading in the table. Should the team and Robert Lewandowski win it, it would be the tenth Bundesliga title in a row. This is a great motivation for Lewandowski: „Winning our tenth championship title in ten years would be something historic.“

Lewandowski wants to write history

Lewandowski, who is hungry for the title, really wants to write history. The all-around striker spoke about a possible tenth title in a row: „People in the future will say: ‚Wow, what a team that was. Who used to play in this team?‘. 

We have the chance to become the first team to do this.“ If the captain of the Polish national team stays in top shape, he could even surpass his own Bundesliga goal record (41 goals) – and rewrite history. The goal-machine currently has 28 goals this season in the league.
