Schalke striker Jefferson Farfan has refused to comment on speculation regarding a move to Malaga but admits he intends to return to play in Peru one day.
The 26-year-old has been a big hit at the Veltins-Arena since signing from PSV in 2008 but has just a year left on his current deal.
The Bundesliga outfit have already offered Farfan and new three-year contract and are expecting a decision from the striker by the end of the month.
Rumours have since emerged of a January move to Malaga, who have embarked on an extensive spending spree thanks to the wealth of owner Sheikh Abdullah Bin Nassar Al-Thani.
When quizzed on the rumours, Farfan insisted he was concentrating solely on Peru's World Cup qualifier with Paraguay in Lima this weekend.
He did, however, admit that one day he would like to return to his homeland and play for former side Alianza Lima.
"I know by things that I have read in the Peruvian press that it is being said that I may be transferred to Malaga in the next transfer window," said Farfan.
"But I must say that in this moment I have my mind focused on the national team.
"On the other hand, I don't dream of playing at Alianza Lima some day because I know that I am going to play at Alianza."
