Bayern Munich striker Lukas Podolski claims he is unconcerned by reports linking him with a move to Real Madrid. Podolski, 23, is unsettled at the Allianz Arena after spending two seasons behind the likes of Luca Toni and Miroslav Klose in the pecking order. The Germany international has been linked with a move to Real Madrid in the Spanish press, but Podolski claims he is paying little attention. Speaking ahead of his country's World Cup qualifying trip to Finland on Wednesday, he said: "Now is not the time to speak about this. "I am only concentrating on the German national team and I am only thinking about the games we have to play to qualify for the World Cup."
