Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich through director, Hasan Salihamidzic has warned Barcelona to keep off Robert Lewandowski.
The Bavarian wants to extend the 33-year-old stay at the club but is being fought by Barcelona who has promised to improve the player's wages in the summer.
"Lewandowski leaving this summer is not an option. He has a contract until 2023. We will have some talks soon and we will see how they develop and how to act afterward. We want him to stay," Salihamidzic said in an interview on Sky Deutschland.
