    Lewandowski's 'heard nothing' from Real Madrid following agent change

    Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski has rubbished reports suggesting a change of agent means he is off to Real Madrid, with no contact received from Spain. The prolific Pole has turned to ‘super agent’ Pini Zahavi to manage his career, with the Israeli taking on one of the most sought-after talents in world football. Lewandowski is enjoying another productive season at club level, with the 20-goal mark reached in the Bundesliga for a third successive year and the sixth time in seven years spread across spells at Bayern and Borussia Dortmund. It is those exploits which continue to see him linked with big-money moves elsewhere, with reports of interest from Madrid refusing to go away. The 29-year-old has, however, once again moved to distance himself from the rumours and play down the importance of a change in representative, telling reporters: “No, that [agent change] has nothing to do with this speculation. “I haven’t heard anything from Real Madrid, I don’t know whether my agent has and people will write what they want, but it doesn’t interest me.” Lewandowski drew a rare blank in his latest outing, as Bayern were held to a goalless draw by Hertha Berlin, but he remains a talismanic presence in Munich. With that in mind, the Bundesliga leaders have no intention of sanctioning a sale, with manager Jupp Heynckes having said of the incessant transfer talk: “A player is allowed to change his agent, it doesn’t mean anything. “Bayern want to – and will – keep our top players.” Zahavi has also played down the Real reports, with no talks held with the La Liga giants at this stage. He told Bild after being confirmed as Lewandowski’s agent: “Of course I have a lot of contacts in the industry, but that has nothing to do with it. “However, one never knows what will happen in the future.”

    Bayern Munich 0 Hertha Berlin 0: Lewandowski's run ends as leaders are held at home

    Robert Lewandowski failed to score for a record 12th successive Bundesliga home game as Bayern Munich's winning streak ended with a 0-0 draw against Hertha Berlin. Fresh from scoring five against Besiktas in the Champions League on Tuesday, Bayern drew a blank for the first time since a 3-0 European defeat at Paris Saint-Germain that cost former manager Carlos Ancelotti his job. Lewandowski - who had tied Jupp Heynckes' scoring record with a goal against Schalke last time out on home turf - had opportunities to continue his streak at the Allianz Arena, only to be thwarted by Hertha goalkeeper Rune Jarstein. The visitors also defended in stoic fashion as they played the role of party poopers to perfection, in the process recording a third successive clean sheet on their travels. Despite their failure to secure a club record 15th straight victory, Bayern still extended their lead at the summit to 20 points, albeit nearest rivals Borussia Dortmund can cut into that gap when they host Augsburg on Monday. When the teams had met in Berlin last October, Bayern surrendered a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 in their first outing following the departure of Ancelotti. Heynckes wasn't in charge on that occasion, but the veteran coach has engineered such a stunning turnaround in the club's on-field fortunes that it's now a case of when, rather than if, Bayern secure a record-breaking sixth successive Bundesliga title. The 72-year-old – who missed the home win over Schalke on February 10 due to illness – recalled Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben as he shuffled his pack on Saturday, though all eyes were firmly focused on Lewandowski's record attempt. The Poland international twice went close to creating history before the interval, with Jarstein keeping out a close-range header before then combining with defender Jordan Torunarigha to snuff out a one-on-one opportunity set up by Thomas Muller's first-time throughball. Torunarigha was also in the right place to hack clear when Mats Hummels inadvertently deflected Javi Martinez's driven cross towards the goal, while Ribery carelessly blasted over as Bayern endured a frustrating first 45 minutes. Jarstein continued to keep Lewandowski at bay after the break, anticipating well to grasp hold of a curling attempt on one of the few occasions the forward had escaped the attentions of the impressive Torunarigha. David Alaba saw a curling free-kick from 20 yards out turned away in acrobatic fashion as Bayern's frustrations grew with each passing minute the game remained scoreless. Heynckes sent on Kingsley Coman, Sandro Wagner and Arturo Vidal in an attempt to find a breakthrough, though when the first of the three substitutes quickly picked up an injury, Bayern were effectively reduced to 10 men for the remainder of the contest. Still, Robben saw a set-piece strike kept out by Jarstein during stoppage time as Hertha held firm through to the final whistle to claim an unlikely point.

    Heynckes shoots down Lewandowski to Madrid rumours: Top players stay at Bayern

    Jupp Heynckes claims he "can't imagine" Bayern Munich sanctioning the sale of Robert Lewandowski after the striker's recent change of agent prompted fresh transfer links with Real Madrid. Lewandowski is said to have severed ties with Cezary Kucharski, previously his agent for 10 years, in favour of Pini Zahavi, regarded as one of the football world's leading representatives. Zahavi played a role in Neymar's world-record €222 million switch from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain in August and there have been suggestions Lewandowski's decision has been made with a view to securing a big move to Spain. Heynckes is not worried about such a scenario, however, and is adamant Bayern are not a selling club. When it was put to Heynckes that Lewandowski's decision could be to secure a transfer, the coach said: "Well, that's your interpretation. "I think there's nothing wrong with a player changing his agent. I can't judge the reasons. "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. "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."
