Bayern Munich Coach Carlo Ancelotti has ruled out the possibility of Robert Lewandowski leaving the German club in this summer transfer window.
There have been growing interest for Lewandowski even though he was a shadow of himself at the recent Euro Championships.
With an awesome average of 42 goals scored in 51 games for Bayern last season, top clubs like Real Madrid are wooing the 27-year old.
The Pole’s representative Cezary Kucharski actually confirmed that the Spanish giants wanted to bring the striker to Madrid in this transfer window but latest comments by Ancelotti suggest that Madrid way just have to wait a longer while for Lewandowski who has a contract at the Allianz Arena until 2019.
Ancelotti actually stated that Real Madrid “do not need” the Polish international, who will not be permitted to leave the Allianz this summer under any circumstances.
“Real Madrid have many fantastic players, including [Karim] Benzema, [Gareth] Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo, Real don’t even need Lewandowski,” Ancelotti told Sportbild. “And even if they did, Bayern would not sell Lewandowski. Why should we let go one of the best strikers in the world voluntarily?”
Lewandowski has netted 67 goals in 100 games for Bayern since making the move from Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2014.
