Lewandowski has scored 39 goals in the Bundesliga which is one away from the record set by Gerd Muller for the most strikes in a single domestic season in Germany.

There has, however, been slight speculation about his future with Bayern due to the suggestions the club are interested in signing Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.

FootballTransfers wrote this week about how the links to Haaland have allegedly upset Lewandowski.

In an interview with Italian outlet Tuttosport, Lewandowski was asked if a move to Serie A interested him, but Bayern fans can rest easy as it appears he is happy in Germany after all.

“I have spoken to a lot of people about Italian football, they told me various things about your league,” he said.

“I know some teams well because I faced them in the Champions League. 

“The truth, however, is that in addition to having a contract with Bayern, I feel great at this club.”

Lewandowski on Flick and Nagelsmann

A couple of weeks ago it was confirmed that current Bayern boss Hansi Flick would be leaving the club by mutual consent after a hugely successful period which included a haul of six trophies.

RB Leipzig head coach Julian Nagelsmann was quickly announced as his replacement.

Lewandowski has praised Flick for his tenure at the club, but is looking forward to banging in the goals for Naglesmann too.

“A new chapter will open,” The Poland international said of the head coach change.

“But what Flick did will go down in history because it’s something epic. In 2020 we raised all kinds of trophies to the sky and broke many records with him. 

“We are Bayern, so we will give our all to try to win everything also with Nagelsmann. 

“For me it will change little: I have to score with Flick and I will have to do the same with the new coach to help the team. 

“Scoring goals is something I love. When I succeed and we win, everything seems more beautiful to me.”

Bayern won the Bundesliga for a historic ninth time in a row at the weekend following RB Leipzig’s defeat at Dortmund.

The champions celebrated with a 6-0 demolition of Borussia Monchengladbach in which Lewandowski scored a hat-trick.
