However, Begovic has insisted that he is focused on Stoke's preparations for the new season.
"As far as I'm concerned I will [start the season at Stoke]," he told talkSPORT.
"I've obviously just got home from Brazil. My first thoughts are to rest and recuperate and get myself ready for pre-season, which for me starts in three weeks.
"As far as I'm concerned this is where I'll be, this is where I see my future and I'm excited about training in a couple of weeks or so."
Begovic joined Stoke from Portsmouth in 2010.
