Borussia Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has dismissed claims that Robert Lewandowski is set to join Bayern Munich.
The 24-year-old netted 35 goals in all competitions in the 2012-13 season, as Dortmund finished second to Bayern in the Bundesliga before also going down to their rivals in the UEFA Champions League final.
After his side emerged victorious in the European showpiece, departing Munich manager Jupp Heynckes seemingly confirmed that Lewandowski would join Mario Gotze in swapping the Westfalenstadion for Bavaria in the off-season.
But Watzke has now claimed that Juergen Klopp will still have the Polish forward in his squad in 2013-14.
“Robert Lewandowski will definitely not make the switch
to FC Bayern in 2013,” Watze told Bild.
“That’s final. We have informed Robert and his agents
Lewandowski, who scored four goals
against Real Madrid in the home leg of the sides’ Champions League semi-final last season, has also been strongly linked with Manchester United.
