'No chance Lewandowski will leave Bayern' - Heynckes rejects Real Madrid rumours

Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes has indicated the club will keep James Rodriguez for another year and then look to sign the forward on a permanent deal from Real Madrid.

However, speculation over the striker's future refuses to go away, and the Poland worldwide has asked his club to negotiate a move to the Santiago Bernabeu, per Agustin Martin at AS.

But Heynckes said: "[Chairman] Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has already said it: "with Robert, Real Madrid have no chance at all.

Robert Lewandowski would be a good fit for Los Blancos having scored 26 Bundesliga goals this season, including a hat-trick at the weekend in Bayern's Der Klassiker against Borussia Dortmund.

The Bayern Munich boss was talking ahead of his side's Champions League quarter-final first-leg clash with Sevilla on Monday.

In his 2016 autobiography, Coach , Lehmann revisited that tumultuous time. "I'm ultimately responsible for the culture of the team and I've been thinking about my position for a while".

A coy Heynckes added: "I have my opinion on Ribery and Robben".

'The club will know what they are and will decide in due course'.

Earlier on Monday, Rummenigge denied reports Bayern have already chose to sign James on a permanent basis, although he praised the Colombia star for his recent form. "Knowing [Uli] Hoeness and Rummenigge as I do, I would give Real Madrid no chance of signing Lewandowski for next year", he said per Marca's Alberto Laz.

He said: 'I'm not looking for a particular scoreline, I want a win. "He'll definitely play at Bayern in the coming season but Bayern must decide what happens beyond that". I'm surprised that he isn't in the Spanish national team.
