FC Bayern München chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is adamant that the Bundesliga champions will only sell star striker Robert Lewandowski when it suits them.
Lewandowski is reportedly a transfer target of La Liga champions Real Madrid, and the Pole has also hired a new agent Pini Zahavi, which has further hinted that he may be looking at a move away from the Allianz Arena.
However, Rummenigge insists that the 29-year-old, who has scored 32 goals this season, will only be allowed to leave if Bayern decide that it’s the correct decision for the club.
“I always like to remember 2008, when we had an amazing offer from Chelsea for Franck Ribery,” Rummenigge told Kicker.
“From that day on, the whole football world knew: nobody can buy a Bayern Munich player against Bayern Munich’s will.
“I want to assume that Robert is 100 per cent going to play for Bayern next season.”
Lewandowski still has more than three years left on his contract at Die Roten.
