Bayern Munich Threaten To Report Clubs Over Robert Lewandowski Approach

Published on:

Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich have threatened to report clubs to FIFA  if they approach Robert Lewandowski, amid rumours that Manchester United and Chelsea have held talks with the Polish striker.

FootTheBall sources claim that Manchester United and Chelsea are keen on securing the services of Lewandowski.

Two Premier League clubs have already spoken to his agent over a possible switch, according to Sky Sports.

Sources also claim that the Poland skipper is not happy with life at Bayern Munich, with his agent accentuating earlier this week that his client lacked support from boss Carlo Ancelotti to finish as last season’s top scorer as Aubameyang edged past him.

But now Bayern have released a statement to declare that Lewandowski is not for sale and also warned other clubs not to make any sort of contact with their player.

The statement read: “Robert Lewandowski 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.”

Lewandowski lost to Aubameyang in the race to finish as last season’s top scorer, and he said earlier this month: “I wasn’t completely satisfied with the way my team helped me. Immediately after the last game, I was angry and disappointed with my team. That was the feeling I had.”

The Poland skipper arrived at Bayern from rivals Dortmund in 2014 and penned a new deal that will keep him at the club until 2021 in December.
