Kahn dismisses Lewandowski Bayern exit

Bayern Munich CEO Oliver Kahn has dismissed as "nonsense" reports that their top-scoring striker Robert Lewandowski could leave when the season finishes next month.

Lewandowski chalking up his 47th goal this season in Tuesday's 1-1 draw at home to Villarreal which saw Bayern knocked out of the Champions League with a 2-1 aggregate defeat in the quarter-finals.

However, Lewandowski, who turns 34 in August, is out of contract next year.

Bayern are taking their time offering him an extension, fuelling reports he may leave with Barcelona touted as one possible destination, which irks Kahn.

"Apparently there's a competition out there: who can tell the biggest nonsense story about Robert Lewandowski?" Kahn fumed after Tuesday's Champions League exit.

Bayern's top-scorer reportedly earns up to 23 million euros ($25 million) per year in Munich.
