Calling Robert Lewandowski “probably the best No. 9 in Europe,” Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge tells Kicker the prolific Polish striker is not for sale.

Lewandowski has 32 goals in 37 matches this season including 23 in 25 Bundesliga matches, and has netted a wild 117 goals over his last three seasons with the Bavarian club.

His international hot streak is even more impressive; Lewandowski went 67 minutes against Nigeria on March 23 in just his second goalless Poland appearance since June 2016. Overall, he’s netted 17 times in his last 12 caps.

Rummenigge says he’s willing to bet Lewandowski stays at Bayern next season, and wants to send the message that, “against the will of Bayern Munich nobody can buy a Bayern Munich player.”

Anyone want to take Rummenigge’s bet if the big dollars of Real Madrid do come calling?
