Bayern CEO Kahn insists they still expect Lewandowski back for preseason

The Poland striker has asked the German club to listen to offers for him

Barcelona are keen on Lewandowski, who has one year left on his contract

Bayern Munich are not ready to give even an inch on Robert Lewandowski. At least not based on the latest comments coming from various people at the club. On Wednesday morning, sporting director Hasan Salihamidžić warned the striker they are expecting him back on July 12, while Oliver Kahn wasted little time in following that line.

At the presentation of new signing Sadio Mane (in theory something which should help facilitate Lewandowski's exit), Kahn, the former Bayern goalkeeper and CEO, was clear: "There no news with Robert. He has a contract until 2023 and we are waiting for him on the first day of (preseason) training."

NOT BUDGING FOR NOW

Therefore, the Bayern hierarchy are maintaining the line they have been following for several weeks. Lewandowski has been clear. He wants them to negotiate with Barcelona. He wants to move to Camp Nou. Without a doubt, his desire deserves to be heard after his service to the German champions and performances during the last eight years.

"Our responsibility is to ensure we have the most success possible," Kahn added. "Lewandowski has shown what he can do and add to the team. He has a contract until 2023. We are not worried about anything else."
