Lewandowski move snubbed by Bayern
Bayern Munich have issued an open statement insisting that striker Robert Lewandowski will not be allowed to leave the club.
Bayern have warned rivals club not to approach Robert Lewandowski and have vowed to seek FIFA sanctions if their message goes unheeded.
The Poland international has been linked with Premier League clubs Chelsea and Manchester United in recent times and if reports are to believed then initial talks over a deal had already begun.
Bayern issued a statement to Sky Deutschland to deny the claims, saying:
“Robert is under contract at Bayern and only recently renewed his deal until 2021. Bayern Munich waste no thought on a Lewandowski move.”
“There are no talks with other clubs, and there won’t be any. If other clubs negotiate with players who are under long-term contracts, they risk Fifa punishment. The agent also confirmed to us that he has not held any contract talks.”, the club added.
The 28-year old is believed to be unhappy at Bayern Munich with his agent Maik Barthel criticising the management and team-mates for not helping the former Borussia Dortmund star to secure the Bundesliga Golden Boot.
And the player’s agent fuelled speculation that he could leave after revealing that Lewandowski was feeling more disappointed than ever at his situation at the club, telling Kicker:
“Robert told me that he got no support and that the coach gave no call to help him in the last game to win the top-scorer title. He was disappointed as I have never seen him before. He really hoped that the team would support him proactively.”
