Robert Lewandowski: Borussia Dortmund striker has refused to be drawn over his f

The Poland striker showed on Wednesday why he is one of the hottest properties in world football when netting all four goals in Dortmund's 4-1 UEFA Champions League semi-final first leg win over Real Madrid.

While the 24-year-old's contract does not expire until the summer of 2014 and has no release clause, his representative, Maik Barthel, has since claimed his client has agreed a deal with another club and can leave Dortmund this summer.

But Lewandowski, who has previously been linked to Bayern Munich, Manchester United and Juventus, simply wants to concentrate on playing.

He told Polish newspaper Fakt: "I will not comment on pure speculation.

"The media write a lot about me, but that's just their duty. It's hard for me to say now what will happen when the season ends.

"I focus on the nearest game and then the second match with Real. We will see next what life brings."

Lewandowski believes Real were 'clueless' as they slipped from a 1-1 interval scoreline to the heavy defeat.

"They were clueless when we pressed them in the second-half, at times they simply didn't know what to do," he added.

"They weren't too chatty afterwards. They ran to the changing room pretty quickly, while we were celebrating as a team."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
