The Poland international has been tipped as a Madrid target in recent seasons, having cemented his status as one of the world's best strikers during his time in Bavaria. And more buzz was created recently when Lewandowski switched representatives from Cezary Kucharski to Pini Zahavi.
When asked about the decision, Heynckes suggested too much is being read into the move and that he expects Lewandowski to be a Bayern player next season.
"It doesn't mean anything at all for us, given the way I know the officials here at Bayern and what I've heard from them," the 72-year-old said, per Ryan Benson of Goal. "Bayern is not a club that sells the top players. Top players at Bayern stay at Bayern. I can't imagine there's a chance of him leaving Bayern."
Here's a clip from the press conference in question, via Goal UK:
Links to Real Madrid have been simmering consistently when it comes to the former Borussia Dortmund man. And according to Sky Sports' Guillem Balague, Lewandowski and Chelsea forward Eden Hazard will be Los Blancos' top targets in the summer.
Getting the striker away from the Allianz Arena would be difficult, though. Not only is the 29-year-old tied down to a long-term contract with Bayern, but the German champions would surely resist any offer for their key man, especially from a UEFA Champions League rival.
Even if Munich were to receive an extortionate amount of money for the striker, replacing him would be a challenge. As DW Sports noted, Lewandowski has been prolific in the Bundesliga:
Meanwhile, as Fox Soccer demonstrated, the striker is alongside some elite players in the Champions League goalscoring stakes:
Lewandowski is a complete No. 9. While his goalscoring pedigree is obvious given the aforementioned numbers, he does so much more than score at the point of the attack.
The forward is an outstanding technical player, while his link-up play helps bring the best from other Bayern attackers. Additionally, there's a balletic balance in the way he leads the line.
That's something Madrid have lacked this season, with their first-choice No. 9, Karim Benzema, struggling for form. As the Champions League Twitter account noted, the goals have dried up for the France international this term:
Even with a new agent and even if Lewandowski did fancy a new challenge, this would be a complicated transfer to get done. That's primarily because Bayern are one of a few clubs in European football with the ability to resist Madrid's offers if the European champions do try to sign one of their key players.
But given Lewandowski turns 30 in the summer, Los Blancos would surely be reluctant to break their transfer record to sign the striker. As good as the Bayern man is, Real Madrid would want a little more longevity from a big-money acquisition.
