Bayern Munich honorary president Hoeness: Just give up, Barcelona

Bayern Munich honorary president Uli Hoeness has again told Barcelona to forget about signing Robert Lewandowski.

Bayern are not only demanding the payment of at least €50m for the striker, but are also constantly issuing messages in opposition to the departure of the Poland international.

"I don't know anything about a new offer. But as things stand in Munich, what I have heard is that Barcelona should save themselves the effort of making another offer," Hoeness said at a sports congress in Neuland.

Hoeness insisted that Lewandowski still has one more year left on his contract with the Bavarian club and that the plan is for him to see it through:

"I don't make the decisions," he went on. "But Bayern's words were clear.

"They said that Robert should honour his contract with Bayern Munich.

"I can't imagine that there is any amount of money that would make them change their mind."
