Bayern hopeful of keeping Lewandowski

Bayern Munich is still hoping to keep star Robert Lewandowski next season.

The Poland international has just one year left on his contract with Bayern Munich and he has been linked with a move away from his favorite destination Barcelona.

The club’s chief executive, Oliver Kahn, insisted on Sunday that the striker had a year left on his contract, and that he would honor it.

“It’s not something that gives us headaches. We made an offer to his agent. He rejected that offer,” he said.

Adding, “The truth is Liwa has a contract and I’m going to fulfill it. Stop it, Basta!” Khan added.

And in a separate interview, club president Herbert Hainer repeated the same.

Despite the club’s insistence that Lewandowski will not leave this summer, the striker has reportedly agreed to a three-year contract with the Catalan club.

In the event of Lewandowski’s departure, Bayern Munich has been linked with the transfer of Liverpool winger Sadio Mane.
