Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has rubbished the idea of rumors claiming Robert Lewandowski could leave the club.

Robert Lewandowski has become the subject of surprising transfer talk at Bayern Munich, but Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has moved quickly to rubbish any suggestion of the prolific Polish striker being allowed to move on.

It has been suggested that the German champions may be open to the idea of parting with the 32-year-old as they start to clear the way for Erling Haaland to tread a similar career path from Borussia Dortmund.

However, Lewandowski is on the brink of breaking more records this season, as he closes in on 40 Bundesliga goals in 2020-21. 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.

Bayern have no need to consider offloading Lewandowski as the talismanic presence is tied to a contract through to 2023.

He is showing no sign of slowing down either, 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.

While Haaland would no doubt make a good addition to any side, Bayern Munich director Oliver Kahn has described such a move as ‘unimaginable’ for the German champions.
