Fresh speculation over Lewandowski

Borussia Dortmund's Robert Lewandowski has brushed off talk of an agreement to join Bayern Munich next season amid claims from Sky Germany that the striker has been given permission to talk to other clubs.

Lewandowski, 24, has been linked with a move away from Dortmund for some time, with a host of top clubs believed to be in for him.

Reports of a deal having been agreed with Bayern emerged on Monday, only for Dortmund general manager Michael Zorc to immediately dismiss them.

The Poland international himself has spoken out, stating that there is no agreement currently in place to take him from the club he joined from Lech Pozanan in 2010.

"We will talk after the last game of this season," he told Sport Bild. "The decision will be taken in the summer.

"Offers and interest might be nice. But I have told all parties that I don't want to hear any more about this until the summer and I want to focus on BVB.

"I will listen to everything in the summer and will sit down with my agents. I don’t care about anything else right now. How do you say? That it is six of one and half a dozen of the other."

Later on Wednesday, however, Sky Germany reported Dortmund have turned down two offers for the forward - one from Manchester United and another from Bayern Munich.

The media outlet also claimed Dortmund have now given Lewandowski permission to speak to other club, although Dortmund CEO Aki Watzke has told sid: "We will not comment on it [if Dortmund would talk to Bayern]. If somebody approaches us they will find out."

Zorc later added on the Dortmund website: "It is a complete fabrication."
