The Poland international had been linked with a move to both Manchester United and Chelsea after publicly expressing his disappointment with the Bavarian club after missing out on the Bundesliga top scorer award.

But Bayern have dismissed reports he could leave, warning that any club that attempts to approach the player without consulting them first will be liable for sanctioning from FIFA.

A statement read: "Robert Lewandowski has a contract at FC Bayern which he recently has extended until 2021. FC Bayern does not have any thoughts about a transfer.

"There are no talks with other clubs and there won't be any. If other clubs negotiate with players who have long-term contracts they risk getting sanctioned by FIFA."
