Lewandowski looks like staying put
Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski has insisted that he is focused on playing for the Bundesliga Champions and has no intention to leave at the moment.
After a cracking season for Dortmund last time out where he scored 22 goals in the German top flight and then impressed for Poland at Euro 2012, he became one of the most highly-rated young strikers around.
Attention has come from Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Chelsea but Lewandowski seems to want to see out the remainder of his current deal at the club.
He said: “The rumours about me and other teams are not of any interest to me. I have two years on my deal at Borussia Dortmund and I am still a player at this club.
“We have a competitive match this coming weekend and that’s all that matters to me. I am totally focused on the new season and not what could happen in the future.”
Dortmund will be looking to emulate their success of their last campaign where they won the domestic league and cup double.
As well as that, they will be looking to also make a challenge in the Champions League and reach the latter stages of the competition to show what a quality side they are.
Manager Jurgen Klopp has already lost Shinji Kagawa to Manchester United this summer so is sure to fight tooth and nail to keep another one of his prized assets in his squad.
He has hit out at the 23-year-olds agents though, stating that they have been looking for a move instead of the player himself.
Klopp said: “Robert is an exceptional player. He will always be in my squads. Unfortunately his agents will not, there is no doubt about that.”
Dortmund get their Bundesliga campaign underway on Saturday 25th August with a home tie against Werder Bremen.
