Munich’s Schweinsteiger, Lahm not for sale

Bastian Schweinsteiger and Philipp Lahm are not for sale, Bayern Munich sports director Christian Nerlinger said in the wake of interest from major clubs in the two.

Premier League champions Chelsea are reportedly pondering a bid for the midfielder Schweinsteiger and the German World Cup captain Lahm has in the past been linked with Spanish champs Barcelona.

But Nerlinger told Kicker sports magazine that “Lahm and Schweinsteiger are our crown jewels. They are not for sale!” Schweinsteiger, 25, and Lahm, 26, are under contract in Munich until 2012.

They were both impressive in Germany’s 4-0 rout of Australia in their World Cup opener on Sunday, which could lead to more interest after the event.
