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."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
