Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski has ruled out an exit from the Bundesliga side this summer, thus putting an end to speculation regarding the Polish international's move away from the German champions.
The 24-year old has been linked with a move to Manchester United, Chelsea, Bayern Munich, and Juventus, and according to his agent Maik Barthel, had numerous offers made for his services earlier in the summer.
However, with United having now moved for Robin van Persie and Chelsea keen on other players, Lewandowski has postponed his desire to make a move to the Premier League, choosing to concentrate on the upcoming season with Dortmund.
"I am not interested in the speculation surrounding me," Lewandowski told Polish newspaper Przeglad Sportowy. "I have another two years on my contract and I am a Borussia Dortmund player.
"We have a match coming up this weekend and this is what matters. I am concentrating on next season and not on what could be in two years' time."
Bayern however are still said to be keen on Lewandowski, and could be ready to lure the striker with a Â£115,000-a-week pay package. The Pole though still has two years left on his existing contract, and chances are Dortmund will reject any advances for him this season, though will probably be forced into a sale next summer as they are unlikely to meet his wage expectations once his reputation grows stronger.
