Real Madrid stop negotiations for Robert Lewandowski [See Why]
Real Madrid have stopped negotiations for Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski, according to Sky in Germany.
The Polish international has been heavily linked with a move to the Bernabeu this summer but the La Liga side have ended talks with Lewandowski’s agent.
Bayern chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge insists the 29-year-old will be staying with the Bundesliga champions.
He told Kicker: “They do not have to worry about Robert Lewandowski and the relationship with Bayern. We have a very good one.
“We know what we have in Robert Lewandowski. I am very happy that we still have such a long-term contract. [There’s] no need to worry – he will also play next season at Bayern Munich.”
Lewandowski is the Bundesliga’s top scorer this season with 29 goals and has a contract with the Bavarians until 2021.
The future of Arjen Robben is also in the balance with the Dutch winger hesitating over a one-year contract extension as he weighs up his options having received offers from other clubs.
The 34-year-old has been at Bayern Munich since 2009 and Rummenigge is confident of Robben extending his stay at the club.
He told Kicker: “We are handling it in a relaxed way. We know Robben. He’s a proud Dutchman, you have to have patience. We do.”
Bayern will be hoping Robben follows Franck Ribery, who signed a new one-year deal at the club on Monday.
