Elber, who has lost his record as Bayern’s highest-scoring foreign star to the 29-year-old , believes such talk is an obvious consequence of having one of the finest forwards on the planet on your books.
“Everyone wants to have such a player in their team. If they have the opportunity to get Lewandowski away from Bayern, they will do their best to do it.
“But Bayern have been warned and Lewandowski feels very settled with his family in Munich. He knows that he has everything at Bayern. I hope and expect that he stays with us for a long time.”
Elber added on Lewandowski, who now has 142 Bayern goals to his name: “He has incredible skills and he shows them in every game.
“You could say that it's easy to score goals at Bayern, because the other teams are not good enough, but you still have to deliver. He does that, and also in the Champions League.
“He is currently the best centre-forward in the world.
“He is the whole package. He is as good with his left and right as anybody else and while not a specialist in the air, he still gets plenty of headed goals.
“He has everything. It is difficult to say what weakness he has and what he still needs to improve.”
Lewandowski netted a hat-trick in his last outing for Bayern, in a 6-0 mauling of Hamburg, and has now plundered 37 goals in just 39 appearances for club and country this season.
