Robert Lewandowski: Bayern Munich have ruled out a swap deal for the striker inc

The European champions' pursuit of Lewandowski has been well-documented this summer, with the 24-year old seemingly keen on making the switch despite Dortmund's wishes to keep him.

A swap deal which would see Croatian striker Mandzukic head in the opposite direction had been suggested, but Rummenigge was quick to dismiss this idea.

"This is something I do not favour. This will not take place," he told Sport1 media.

"We are delighted about Mario Mandzukic's stay at our club. He is a very important player for Bayern Munich.

"There is no doubt you could easily spot this against BSV Rehden this week. The manager was totally pleased and happy with Mario."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
