Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski has brushed off talk of an agreement to join Bayern Munich next season, insisting he will make a decision on his future in the summer.

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.

And the Poland international himself has now spoken out, confirming that there is no agreement currently in place to take him from the club he joined from Lech Poznan in 2010.

"We will talk after the last game of this season," Lewandowski 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."

Lewandowski has previously been linked with Manchester United, who reportedly expressed an interest in the striker prior to last summer's European Championship. However, the signing of Robin van Persie has diminished Sir Alex Ferguson's need for additional attacking options.
