Madrid target Lewandowski ‘100 per cent’ staying at Bayern

Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has rubbished the idea of selling Robert Lewandowski this summer.

The Poland striker has been at Allianz Arena since 2014, scoring 142 goals in 184 games and establishing himself as one of the best strikers in the world in the process.

“I like to assume that Robert is one hundred percent going to play at Bayern Munich next season,” he told Kicker.

“This is a duck that landed on a lake in Munich,” he said.
