Lazio have moved to cool speculation over Bayern Munich's interest in Goran Pandev.

The Macedonia international has admitted he could move to Bayern in the summer, but Lazio released an official statement yesterday insisting that was not the case.

"With relation to the stories that are totally without foundation, S.S. Lazio repeat that the player Goran Pandev is under a long-term contract and will continue to play for Lazio.

"S.S. Lazio warn anyone against spreading news items that are destabilising and lacking in foundation."
