Bayern Munich 'not planning' move for Robert Lewandowski

.

Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has denied the Bundesliga leaders are planning an approach for Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski, who is reportedly being courted by Manchester United.

Lewandowski has repeatedly been linked with a summer transfer to either Bayern Munich and Manchester United, with most recent reports suggesting the Poland international is destined for a switch to the Allianz Arena.

Bayern legend Lothar Matthaus claimed earlier in February that the Bavarian giants had beaten Manchester United to the signature of Lewandowski after agreeing terms with the 24-year-old, but Rummenigge has dismissed such suggestions.

"I'm totally relaxed about the Lewandowski rumours," Rummenigge told Bild.

"Bayern are not planning to hold negotiations with Borussia Dortmund over the transfer of Lewandowski."

Lewandowski has established himself as one of the most potent goalscorers in European football since his transfer from Lech Poznan to Borussia Dortmund in 2010, and has scored 60 in 121 appearances for BVB.

Along with Bayern Munich and Manchester United, the forward has also been linked with a transfer to Juventus, although the interest of the Italian champions may be curtailed following the acquisitions of Fernando Llorente and Nicolas Anelka.
