He is considered a real exceptional talent who also represents Polish football very well internationally. It was not until 2019 that the news came that the striker was his Extended contract with FC Bayern Munich early with a gigantic salary increase to around 20 million euros per season until 2023 and the Bundesliga will be there for a while. The According to our projections, Robert Lewandowski’s assets are around 60 million euros.
With Anna Lewandowska (maiden name Stachurska) at his side, also from Poland, Lewandowski is definitely on the sunny side of life. By the way, his wife was a successful Polish karate fighter and is now an entrepreneur in the nutrition and fitness sector, where she runs several companies.

Robert Lewandowski’s football career
Robert Lewandowski grew up in a family that was all about sports. Both parents were competitive athletes and their son was a wonderful role model. Little Robert stood on the soccer field for the first time when he was 8 years old. Initially, he played in many local leagues in Warsaw. In the 2007/2008 season he played in Poland in the second division and was at least the top scorer there. This made an impression, so that the Pole could secure a four-year contract with a first division club in the summer of 2008. Robert Lewandowski signed with Lech Posen. In December of the same year, the smart striker was named “Newcomer of the Year”, so that little by little the whole of Poland became aware of him. In 2009 he was even nominated for “Footballer of the Year” in Poland, but could not secure this title.
German Bundesliga and Borussia Dortmund
It took until summer 2010 for Robert Lewandowski to move to the German Bundesliga. There he found his entry into Borussia Dortmund, which he was able to sign for 4.75 million euros. His contract lasted until summer 2014. In his very first season with the Bundesliga club, Robert Lewandowski was able to contribute 8 goals in 33 of 34 possible Bundesliga games and his Team so to the title of the German championship help. In 2012 the team was able to win the championship again. This time Robert Lewandowski even contributed 22 goals and became the third-best goalscorer. At the same time, the striker also became the best Polish goalscorer in the entire Bundesliga. Because his compatriot Jan Furtok had only 20 goals in the 1990/91 season, so Lewandowski was clearly ahead.
The 2012 DFB Cup final will be particularly remembered by his current club, FC Bayern Munich. At that time Robert Lewandowski scored 3 goals and therefore helped BVB to a 5-2 win over Munich, which made the first double for the club from Dortmund. With a total of 20 goals, the Polish footballer was again the top scorer in the German Bundesliga in the 2013/14 season.
FC Bayern Munich
Uli Hoeneß wanted to sign Lewandowski back in 2013, but Dortmund did not want to let the player go before the end of the contract period. The move to FC Bayern then took place free of charge in the 2014/15 season, which probably earned him a fair amount of hand money. With his new club, the striker was able to become the German champion again in 2015, so that he has now been able to collect a number of championship titles in Poland and Germany. September 22, 2015 was a very special day for footballers. Because he succeeded in something that no other Bundesliga player had done before. In under 9 minutes he scored 5 goals in the game against Wolfsburg. Many other records and awards go to the account of Poland, who lives in Germany.
In 2015 he was named World Scorer and Poland’s Sportsman of the Year. So we can be curious what the future holds for Robert Lewandowski. In Bavaria he works as “Duo Müllandowski“Together with Thomas Müller as good as once with Uli Hoeneß and Gerd Müller. In addition, the reinforcement of Coutinho in 2019 will also make the striker even better. After the many championship titles, the Pole was still missing the Champions League title for a long time. He fulfilled this dream on August 23, 2020 in the Corona final in Lisbon.
