Dortmund have no plans to sell four-goal hero Lewandowski

Borussia Dortmund manager Juergen Klopp and general manager Hans-Joachim Watzke have denied claims they are preparing to sell Robert Lewandowski.

The Polish striker was the hero for the German club as they defeated Real Madrid 4-1 in the Champions League semi-final first leg, scoring all four goals.

Lewandowski has been heavily linked with a summer move to Manchester United and Bayern Munich but Klopp and Watzke says he is not going anywhere.

"I don't believe Lewandowski is on the run. We won't send him away," Klopp told Sky Sports.

Watzke told ZDF: "Unlike Mario (Gotze, who has signed with Bayern) he has no release clause. We want Robert to play next year in Dortmund, for this we waive a transfer fee.

"But first of all we have to talk with Robert. He is one of our most important players and a great guy.

"We have a good relationship and the transfer fee does not matter. I want him to stay, and in my life a lot of my wishes came true."
