The Bayern Munich president dismissed reports that the Bundesliga giants had put a €200 million price on their star striker

Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski will not be sold and reports of a €200 million (£176m/$236m) price tag are nonsense, club president Uli Hoeness said.

Lewandowski, 29, is linked with a move away from the Bundesliga giants after his agent said last month the Poland international wanted to leave .

Manchester United and Chelsea have emerged as possible destinations, while Real Madrid were initially reported to be interested.

"Robert will not be sold and will play next season with us. Everything has been said about that."

Lewandowski, who is contracted until 2021, has spent the past four seasons at Bayern, scoring 41 goals in 2017-18.

The forward will be in action for Poland this summer, with his country one of the favourites in Group H where they will face Colombia, Senegal and Japan
