Bastian Schweinsteiger has insisted that Philipp Lahm's decision to sign a new contract with Bayern Munich will have no influence on whether he opts to extend his own contract.

Lahm has agreed to stay at the club until 2016 and it is the future of Schweinsteiger that has now come under the microscope.

The midfielder's current contract does not expire for almost two years but he has previously admitted that he could be tempted by a move elsewhere.

Reports have suggested that Real Madrid are interested in bringing in Schweinsteiger and Bayern are determined to tie him to fresh terms.

However, the 26-year-old maintains that he will take his time to decide on his next move and will not be swayed by what Lahm has done.

"The fact Philipp has decided to extend his contract plays no role in my decision," Schweinsteiger told Bild.

"I will not let me put myself under pressure."

Last week, Schweinsteiger hinted he would be happy to extend his contract and Bayern president Uli Hoeness has said the German giants are set to offer him a deal.

"We will not be mean, because we know precisely the importance he has for us," said Hoeness.
