“With players, one must show a clear attitude. [Lewandowski] also wanted to move on, but we told him that we wouldn’t allow it.

“We are totally satisfied with the player, there are few that compare to him in his position, and so it is not in our interest to hand him over; no matter if someone puts 100m or 150m euros on the table.
