Bayern Munich have played down reports that Oliver Kahn could leave the club by reminding the keeper that he still has two years remaining on his contract.

Kahn has been linked with a move to Manchester United, but Bayern’s general manager Uli Hoeness noted that Kahn still has three years to run on his present deal.

“If Kahn has a problem, he is asked to talk with us and not the press. Furthermore he should take a look at his contract which runs until 2006,” said Hoeness.

Meanwhile, newly-appointed coach, Felix Magath, refused to discussthe reports.

“Why should I deal with the whole subject? I believe that Kahn will represent Bayern next season,” claimed the former Stuttgart coach.
