Bayern Munich issue Lewandowski statement amid Chelsea link

Bayern Munich have responded to speculation linking Robert Lewandowski with a summer transfer, insisting the Poland international wants to remain at the Allianz Arena.

A club statement released to Sky Sports read: “Lewandowski’s contract expires 2021, he signed it not long ago. Lewandowski does not want to leave Bayern. There are no talks with other clubs and there won’t be any.

“If other clubs negotiate with long time contract players they risk a FIFA penalty.”

Chelsea and Manchester United have reportedly held preliminary talks to try to lure Lewandowski to the Premier League.

The striker signed a new contract with Bayern in December, keeping him at the club until 2021, but said recently that he was "disappointed" over a perceived lack of support at Bayern in his hunt for the Bundesliga golden boot.

He scored 30 goals last season, but missed out on the top-scorer prize to Borussia Dortmund's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang by a single goal.
