Bayern Munich boss Carlo Ancelotti has poured cold water over suggestions they could sell prolific striker Robert Lewandowski to Real Madrid.
The Poland international had reportedly admitted interest in a move to the Champions League winners before Euro 2016 in the summer.
But Ancelotti moved to dismissed claims that the 27-year-old, who still has three years to run on his current deal, would be leaving the club.
On Real Madrid’s interest, he told SportBild: “They have a lot of fantastic players, for instance Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale or Cristiano Ronaldo.
“Real don’t need Lewandowski on top and, even if they did, Bayern won’t sell Lewandowski. Why should we voluntarily give away one of the best attackers in the world?”
“Lewandowski will stay here because he’s one of the best attackers in the world. It’s as simple as that.”
