Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has moved quickly to rubbish any suggestion that Manchester United target Robert Lewandowski will leave the club at the end of the season.
Lewandowski is on the brink of breaking more records this season, as he closes in on 40 Bundesliga goals in 2020-21, but there has been alot of rumours that he could actually leave the club at the end of the season.
United, who will be in need of adding a striker to the attack in the transfer window, are just one of a number of clubs that are reportedly keeping a very close eye on his situation at Bayern, and are ready to make a move should he leave.
However, despite all that speculation, Bayern have no need to consider offloading Lewandowski as the talismanic presence is tied to a contract through to 2023, and Rummenigge says there is no chance of him leaving the Allianz Arena any time soon.
“Sure he stays. Who sells a player that scores 60 goals a year?” Rummenigge, chairman of the executive board at Bayern, told Sport1.
Look, He is showing no sign of slowing down, having hit another 46 goals across all competitions this season, and has spoken of a desire to play on for at least another five years. So the rumours that he could leave have been a shock to see in the media.
He is one of the very best strikers in the game, and Bayern would be silly to let him leave the club. So unless something sensational happens in the summer, United will not be seeing Lewandowski arrive at the club.
But they will need to add a striker to that attack in order to win a trophy or two
