Oliver Kahn dismissed the allegations, stressing that there were no negotiations with Pole over the transfer and that they had no intention of allowing him to leave in the summer.
“Obviously there’s a competition out there: who’s going to tell the big nonsense about Robert Lewandowski. We’re not crazy and we don’t need to talk about selling a player who scores between 30 and 40 goals each season,” he said. Amazon Prime Video.
“We definitely have another season. Robert knows what he’s getting from Bayern. We know what we have in him. From then on, we’ll wait and see.
“Bayern have a contract with Robert that will end another season. We said we would start negotiations, and we started that long ago. And if we have to announce something, we will do so.”
The 33-year-old has made a name for himself as the best striker in the world thanks to his goal-scoring prowess, scoring 341 amazing goals in just 370 games against the Bavarian Bulls.
