Jupp Heynckes: Real Madrid Have No Chance Of Signing Robert Lewandowski

Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heynckes has dismissed the possibility of Real Madrid pursuing the signature of Robert Lewandowski at the end of the season. The Poland international has been heavily linked with a move to the European champions, but Heynckes has stressed that the club have no interest in sanctioning the striker’s sale. Speaking after the Borussia Dortmund game, he said: “Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has already made this perfectly clear: Real Madrid has absolutely no chance of acquiring Robert Lewandowski.”

Meanwhile, the veteran head coach was coy on the futures of Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben despite their existing deals due to expire at the end of the season, he added:"I have my opinion on Ribery and Robben, but I will hold back here with my recommendations. The club will know what they are and will decide in due course."

Bayern closed in on the Bundesliga title as they secured a thumping 6-0 win over Dortmund at the Allianz Arena. Lewandowski scored another match-winning hat-trick for the Bavarian giants during the game, and this took him to 26 Bundesliga goals for the third straight season, the first to do so for any German outfit in 43 years.

Lewandowski’s future has been put into scrutiny ever since his decision to recruit PiniZahavi as his representative. The super-agent was key to orchestrating Neymar’s world-record move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain last summer, but this may not happen with the Pole, judging by Bayern’s stance of late.

Lewandowski will be in action for Bayern in the Champions League in midweek where they face-off against Sevilla in the quarter-final stage. The Bavarian outfit are due to make the visit to Andalusia for the first-leg of the encounter, and Heynckes will be hoping that his side can bag an away goal in order to better their chances of progressing to the semi-finals.
