Bundesliga side Schalke insist that they have no intention to sell playmaker Lincoln.
On the contrary, managing director Andreas Muller has confirmed the club are ready to hand the Brazilian a new contract.
"It's very important to keep him on the basis of a long-term contract," said
"Lincoln has a position here at Schalke he would not enjoy elsewhere, certainly not in Munich."
Earlier this summer, The Royal Blues rebuffed Bayern's é¼6 million (£4 million) offer for Lincoln and according to speculation in the German press, the Bundesliga champions could test Schalke's resolve again by presenting a new offer during the January transfer window.
"We have to wait and see what the player wants, but he is a vital factor in our long-term planning," Muller added.
Lincoln is tied to the Veltins-Arena until 2008, but has recently fuelled the rumours about his possible farewell by stressing that he could be ready for a new challenge.
