Lewandowski 'flattered' by PSG talk, but happy at Bayern

The 27-year-old played down talk of a move to the Ligue 1 side, while also stated he does not take the Ballon d'Or seriously
Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski admits it is "flattering" to be linked with Paris Saint-Germain, but insists he is fully focused on his work with the Bundesliga side.

With the Ligue 1 side set to lose star man Zlatan Ibrahimovic at the end of the season, the 27-year-old has been talked up as a potential replacement.

Bayern chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge also put pressure on his position by stating the clubs' interest in Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain, yet he played down rumours of a move.

He told Telefoot: "It's very flattering to see PSG officials talk about me but I'm concentrated on my work here at Bayern."

The Poland international finished fourth in the Ballon d'Or for last year, behind winner Lionel Messi, runner-up Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar after an impressive 2015 for club and country.

Yet Lewandowski, who helped Poland to Euro 2016 with a second-place finish in Group D while winning the Bundesliga and the DFB-Pokal with Bayern, says he is "not passionate" about the award.

He added: "I'm happy to be in that group of players. I've improved since I joined Bayern.

"But I can confess that I'm not passionate about the Ballon d'Or."
