“I know that there is interest from abroad, but I can very well imagine putting pen to paper on a new deal here because of the super team and the good cooperation, because the club is known to honour good performances,” he told German weekly Sport Bild.
The Polish star signed a five-year deal with Bayern on a free transfer from Borussia Dortmund in 2014.
This season he has notched up 31 goals in 30 games, and he earnt four separate Guinness World Records certificates for his five-goal spree against Wolfsburg last September.
The 27-year-old's name has been mentioned in connection with Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, among others, but he told Sport Bild that his Bavarian side has the right priorities.
“I've noticed how the club has prepared for the future,” he said.
“The new deals for Boateng and Muller were a good sign that FC Bayern can keep their star players despite the money in England.” (nh/pk)
