Bayern Munich chief executive Oliver Kahn has described it is as 'nonsense' that Robert Lewandowski has agreed a deal to join Barcelona this summer and is confident that the striker will remain with the German giants for the foreseeable future.

Recent reports had recently claimed that Lewandowski, who has publicly stated the he is keeping his options open at the end of the season, had already thrashed out a deal with Barcelona and had informed Bayern’s hierarchy of his intention to move to Camp Nou.

Kahn has rubbished such claims, insisting there have been no discussions with the Pole regarding a transfer and that they have no intention of letting him leave in the summer.

"Apparently there is a competition out there: who will tell the biggest nonsense story about Robert Lewandowski. We’re not crazy and we are not discussing the transfer of a player who scores between 30 and 40 goals for us every season," he told Amazon Prime Video.

"We definitely have him with us for another season. Robert knows what he gets out of Bayern. We know what we have in him. From then on, we’ll wait and see.

"Bayern have a contract with Robert that runs for another season. We said we would start talks, and we started that a long time ago. And if there is something to announce, we will do so."

The 33-year-old has established himself as the best striker in the world thanks to his performances in front of goal, scoring a staggering 341 goals in just 370 games for the Bavarian giants.
