Dortmund dismiss report Lewandowski set to leave

Borussia Dortmund on Saturday dismissed a report Poland striker Robert Lewandowski is set to leave the German champions at the end of the season, with Manchester City as a likely destination.

"At the moment there is neither a request, nor an offer for Robert Lewandowski," Dortmund director Michael Zorc told website Transfermarkt.

German magazine Focus had quoted a Borussia board member as saying "Robert Lewandowski's departure at season's end is a done deal", but Dortmund chairman Hans-Joachim Watzke joined Zorc in dismissing the report.

"The report lacks any basis. I can not see why a board should say something like that," he insisted after Lewandowski scored 22 goals in 34 Bundesliga games last season.

Lewandowski has a contract with Dortmund until June 2014 and Focus also claim Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko had been offered in exchange for Lewandowski.

"There has been no contact from Manchester City, either about Robert Lewandowski or any other player," added Watzke.

"There has also been no contact (about him) with any other club."
