Bayern Munich coach Niko Kovac has provided an update on the future of star striker Robert Lewandowski, who has been linked with an exit.
The Poland international has been heavily linked with Real Madrid in the past couple of seasons, with the LaLiga now in need of another scorer after Cristiano Ronaldo's exit.
The new Bayern manager has since revealed that he has spoken with Lewandowski, who claimed the Bundesliga's golden boot last season.
"It's true that Robert and I had a conversation last week," Kovac told Sport Bild.
"Robert knows how I think about him and what I think of him. The whole club knows his qualities. He is certainly among the top three strikers in the world.
"We certainly will not give him up. That's the statement I gave him. Robert accepted that. I really enjoyed that."
