Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp has insisted that Bayern Munich are yet to make an offer for star striker Robert Lewandowski and told reporters that the Pole's future will become clearer in the coming days.
The charismatic coach affirmed that no formal bid has been tabled for the 24-year-old by the recently-crowned European champions, though he expects his future to be resolved shortly.
"We have not received an official offer from Bayern Munich as of yet, so I still expect Robert to play for Dortmund next season," Klopp was quoted as saying by German newspaper Bild. "We will make sure that all the speculation about his future ends in the next few days."
One of Lewandowski's agents, Cezary Kucharski, recently claimed that the Poland international will swap Dortmund for fierce rivals Bayern in the summer transfer window, but Klopp has stressed that the transfer is by no means a done deal.
"I will not be angry with him regardless of what happens," he added. "I am looking at this professionally. We will see what happens. Everything's possible.
"The funny thing is that everybody acts as if it is already a done deal. Jupp Heynckes said so, his agents say so, yet we have not received an offer... What is that all about really? Regardless of the outcome, this is not exactly a nice thing."
Lewandowski signed a four-year contract when he joined Dortmund in 2010 and has scored 54 goals in 98 appearances for the German side. However, he is said to be extremely keen to join either Pep Guardiola's Bayern Munich setup.
