Polish professional footballer, Robert Lewandowski, has decided on his future with the German football club Bayern Munich.

While prolific striker is having less than two years left of his current contract with Bayern, rumours have been flying that the 33-year-old player is considering a move to Real Madrid.

Lewandowski has, however, hinted that he will end his football career with the Bundesliga leaders.

Naija News understands Lewandowski has just won Europe’s “Golden Shoe” on Tuesday as top scorer in European football after he scored a Bundesliga record 41 goals in 29 games last season.

The Poland national team captain is currently enjoying his lead as the German league’s joint top-scorer this season alongside Dortmund star striker Erling Braut Haaland with seven goals in five league games.

While Bayern prepare for their Friday’s away match at bottom side Greuther Fuerth, Lewandowski told journalists that he “doesn’t need to prove myself in another league.

“I can compete with the best from other leagues in the Champions League. I’m 100 percent focused on Bayern Munich – I don’t think about anything else, but my team,” he added.

The forward is said to have caused mixed reactions during training session on Wednesday after he stormed the pitch with his newly-won Golden Shoe award.

It was a call for celebration as his Bayern team-mates queued up for photos with the trophy.

Meanwhile, Portugal professional footballer who plays as a forward for Manchester United, Cristiano Ronaldo, has overtaken his Paris Saint-Germain counter, Lionel Messi, as the highest earner in world football.

Naija News reports that Messi has just joined PSG from FC Barcelona and his current earning is reportedly around €94 million gross, with a salary of €64 million and a lower commercial earnings.

Ronaldo on the other hand had also made a return to Old Trafford after twelve years of leaving the club.

According to forbes in a recent publication, the Portugal National team captain will earn almost €107 million gross, including a salary of close to €60 million and more than €40 million in earnings from sponsorships and partnerships with brands including Nike, Herbalife and the CR7 brand.
