Bayern Munich’s new manager, Niko Kovac has said that star striker Lewandowski will not be sold by reigning Bundesliga champions after a conversation with him.
Robert Lewandowski has scored 106 Bundesliga goals in four seasons with Bayern and was linked with a switch to Real Madrid as Ronaldo replacement.
"It's true that Robert and I had a conversation last week," Kovac told the reporters.
"Robert knows how I think about him and what I think of him. The whole club knows his qualities. He is certainly among the top three strikers in the world.
"We certainly will not give him up. That's the statement I gave him. Robert accepted that. I really enjoyed that."
Niko Kovac also confirmed Croatian winger Rebic won’t be moving to Bayern Munich this summer.
"Ante is a strong personality and a great player who has developed brilliantly in the last two years at Frankfurt, and at the World Cup with Croatia," Kovac added.
"But [a transfer] makes no sense. It doesn't make sense today, and it won't tomorrow."
