Lewandowski: Linked with Bayern move

Borussia Dortmund's general manager Hans-Joachim Watzke insists reports that striker Robert Lewandowski has agreed a move to Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich next season are without foundation, but admitted they would not stand in his way if he requested a transfer.

Lewandowski's contract expires in 2014 and there has been no indication from the player that he will be extending that deal.

The chances of him being sold in the summer, one year before he becomes a free agent, are high but Watzke denies a deal has already been struck with Bayern.

"It's just a bubble of speculation," he said. "There is absolutely zero substance in the reports, there's is not even a primary source - that really gets on my nerves.

"The fact is, Robert has a contract with us until 2014 and we want to extend that."

Reports in Germany and Italy claimed Lewandowski had already agreed terms with the Bavarians and the two clubs would now discuss a fee for the Poland international.

Watzke has rejected the claims, but admits his club would never stand in the way of a player who wants to leave.

"If Robert doesn't extend his contract by the end of the season, then we will just do what we've always done, which is sit down together and discuss where things go," he told the Spiegel magazine.

"But we certainly wouldn't let him go for any old price."

Lewandowski has score 18 goals in 28 matches for the Westphalians this season, attracting interest from other top European clubs with his performances in the Champions League as well as his consistent success in the Bundesliga.

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
