The Bundesliga club have issued a blunt response after various newspaper reports linked their star striker with a move to the Premier League

Bayern Munich have issued a statement insisting that striker Robert Lewandowski will not be allowed to leave the club.

The Poland international had been linked with a move to both Manchester United and Chelsea after publicly expressing his disappointment with the Bavarians after he missed out on the Bundesliga top scorer award.

And the player's agent fuelled speculation that he could leave after revealing that Lewandowski was feeling more disappointed than ever at his situation at the club.

But Bayern have dismissed reports he could leave, warning that any club that attempts to approach the player without consulting them first will be liable for sanctions from FIFA.

A statement read: "Robert Lewandowski has a contract at FC Bayern which he recently has extended until 2021. FC Bayern does not have any thoughts about a transfer.

"There are no talks with other clubs and there won't be any. If other clubs negotiate with players who have long-term contracts they risk getting sanctioned by FIFA."

Lewandowski was Bayern's top scorer last season, netting 30 goals in Germany's top flight.

He missed out on the top scorer award to Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, however, with the Gabon forward finishing up with 31 goals in the competition after his final-day double against Werder Bremen.
