Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski has insisted he is focusing fully on his task at the Ruhr giants as speculation continues to swirl around his future.
Lewandowski’s current contract at Dortmund expires in the summer of 2014, meaning he will have just one more year left to run in the summer, should he not pen an extension.
Dortmund are hopeful the Poland international will decide to stay, but there has been interest from elsewhere, with Manchester United consistently linked with Lewandowski, while Bayern Munich are also thought to be admirers.
Another potential destination is Juventus, although the Italian champions have agreed to sign Spain international striker Fernando Llorente in the summer.
Lewandowski is paying no attention to the speculation in any case and remains focused on Dortmund and the current campaign.
"I’m certainly here until the end of the season and that’s the most important thing", he told German daily Bild.
"I am concentrating only on Borussia Dortmund."
There is though no news on a new contract for Lewandowski, even though Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke remains hopeful.
"There is nothing new to report, but our ambition is of course still to extend Robert’s contract."
