Chelsea, Real Madrid target Lewandowski extends Zahavi deal as Bayern Munich 'remain stubborn'

Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski is extending his contract with super agent Pini Zahavi.

The Poland international had signed with Zahavi to the end of the summer market this month - with the clear view of getting a move away.

However despite the interest of Chelsea, Real Madrid and PSG, Lewandowski was blocked from leaving Bayern by the club's board.

Bayern chairman Uli Hoeness told Sky Deutschland: "We are determined that we will remain stubborn. We want to prove to the football world that even with offers that are well over 100 million, when an association says no, we mean it."

As a consequence, Lewandowski has decided to extend his partnership with Zahavi, reports BILD, and a new representation contract to 2020 has been signed.
