Bastian Schweinsteiger has outlined his intention to stay at Bayern Munich and sign a new contract.
The Germany international rediscovered his best form at Euro 2008 and has been linked with a move to the Premier League.
Chelsea and Manchester United are both rumoured to want the 23-year-old, whose Bayern contract expires next summer.
However, after returning for pre-season training, the midfielder confirmed he wants to discuss a new deal at the Allianz Arena.
"I'll be talking to Bayern before I talk to anyone else because Bayern Munich is my home," Schweinsteiger told the club's official website.
Schweinsteiger is also looking ahead to the new season following Germany's defeat to Spain in the final of Euro 2008.
He added: "I don't really want to talk about the Euro any more. The past counts for nothing in football."
