Robert Lewandowski remains focused on Poland’s forthcoming Euro 2012 campaign, despite speculation continuing to link him with a host of clubs, including Manchester United.
The Borussia Dortmund forward is a summer target of United boss, Sir Alex Ferguson, who is looking to bolster his attacking options, following Michael Owen’s departure, and the anticipated exit of Dimitar Berbatov.
However, the £15-million rated Lewandowski is refusing to get carried away by the thought of turning out at Old Trafford, next season, insisting: "For every player, this is a once-in-a-lifetime thing, a tournament like this in your country.
“I hope for the Polish players and fans this creates unforgettable emotions, and will be a great experience.
"There are advantages and disadvantages of being hosts, having the fans and the entire country behind us is an advantage, but the pressure and expectations will be great, so we have to prepare both physically and mentally."
The 23-year-old has spent the last two seasons with Borussia Dortmund; his goals - 30 in only 67 appearances - have helped the club win successive Bundesliga titles.
He also scored a hat trick, as Dortmund beat Bayern Munich 5-2 in the DFB-Pokal Final, earlier this month, as the club earned the first league and cup double in their history.
Lewandowski made his name at Lech Poznan, where he was a prolific goalscorer . Earlier in his career, he was Znicz Pruszkow’s top scorer in the 2006-07 campaign, helping the club secure promotion from the Polish third division.
