Fulham keeper Schwarzer baffled over new contract offer claims
Schwarzer, whose current deal ends this summer, is adamant discussions have not started and no offer has been made, contrary to claims by manager Martin Jol.
A close source revealed to The Sun: "Mark has had a brilliant season and loves playing for Fulham.
"But, more than anything, he wants to be assured he will be first-choice and not simply be sitting on the bench next season.
"No offer has yet been made to him, but this is not about money for him.
"Australia have a great chance of qualifying for the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil and Mark knows he needs regular first-team club football to be selected.
"He has looked after himself, is in great physical condition and remains one of the best keepers in the Premier League."
