Lewandowski: Aubameyang should stay

FC Bayern München striker Robert Lewandowski says the Bundesliga can only benefit from the presence of the league’s top goalscorer Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

While Polish international goal-getter Lewandowski has an impressive ratio of 14 league goals in 17 matches, the Gabon international has 16 in 15 games for Borussia Dortmund.

While a number of European clubs including Real Madrid and Manchester City are reportedly keen on the 27-year-old, Lewandowski feels he should remain just where he is.

Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke admitted earlier in the week that the club would be willing to do business with offers in the region of €80 million.

Speaking to Sport Bild, Lewandowski said: "I have heard that he is feeling very well in Dortmund.

"I obviously do not know exactly what he is thinking and BVB have a decision to make as well. Do they want to hold on to him or make a lot of money…

"But of course, it would be better for the Bundesliga if he were to stay put."

While Dortmund signed Aubameyang as a replacement for Lewandowski, the pair spent a season together during the 2013/14 season where the Pole netted 20 times in 33 league games, as his former teammate scored 13 in 32.
