Dante, who joined Bayern from Borussia Monchengladbach during the summer, has impressed in his appearances for the Bavarian giants and has thus far featured in every Bundesliga game for the club this season.
The 29-year-old has never won a major trophy in his career but could well end his barren run with Bayern looking dominant in the league and being early favourites for the Bundesliga title.
And the Brazilian reveals that one of the major reasons which motivated him to join Die Roten was the prospect of winning trophies.
"Between the [contract] offer and my signature, I thought about it all the time," he told Bild.
"Since my first day at Bayern I stopped dreaming.
"Now I just want to concentrate on the next match and win.
"But the desire for titles was the main motivation to come here."
Dante is expected to feature when Bayern, currently first in the league after winning 30 points from 11 games, take on Nurnberg in their next league fixture.
