Sporting Lisbon defender Marcos Rojo has vowed not to be distracted by interest from other clubs, as he seeks to put his full focus into the World Cup.

Rojo, who has been linked with Manchester United, Liverpool, Barcelona, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, is currently in Brazil as part of the Argentina squad and started their first group game against Bosnia, a 2-1 win.

The defender could be on the move from Sporting Lisbon this summer, but he is determined not to let anything overshadow his World Cup experience.

"I am calm and I'm keeping my mind on the World Cup", Rojo told Catalan daily Sport.


"I have done the right things in the past year in Europe and we will see what my future holds", he added, in a nod towards a potential move.


The 24-year-old made 24 appearances in the Primeira Liga with Sporting Lisbon last season, even managing to get on the scoresheet on four occasions.

Rojo's contract at the Portuguese giants runs until the summer of 2016.
