Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge says Oliver Kahn will stay at the the club, despite the keeper initimating that he would like a move abroad.

Kahn has been linked to several clubs including Manchester United, who are believedto be seeking a replacement for Fabian Barthez. But Rummenigge has declared that Kahn will remain at the club.

“He has a contract until 2006,” Rummenigge told Friday’s Abendzeitung.

“Even if we had 15 offers for him, we would not let him go.”

Kahn said this month that he might leave Germany for a new challenge abroad, while his coach at Bayern, Ottmar Hitzfeld, admitted that intrusions into the player’s private life by the German media, may convince the keeper to leave the country. Kahn attracted headlines after he admitted having an affair with a barmaid while his wife was pregnant.
