Manchester United & Arsenal Target Not For Sale – Report


Arsenal and Manchester United target striker Mario Mandzukic is not going anywhere in the January transfer window, as claimed by Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

Bayern have signed Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski, who will join them next summer on a free transfer. His signing could see Mandzukic dropping down the pecking orders at the club.

“We’re very happy with Mario,” Rummenigge said on his club’s website. “He made a major contribution to us winning so many titles last year. I just have to think back to the goal in London.

“He’s a fantastic player who has come on leaps and bounds with Bayern.

“His contract runs until 2016 and I told his advisor in Marrakech that we would be willing to talk about an extension. We have absolutely no intention of selling Mario.”

There you go, any chance of a potential transfer is highly unlikely in the winter transfer window but both Arsenal and Manchester United can make a bid for him in the summer. The 27-year-old striker has scored 10 Bundesliga goals in 12 appearances this season.

Rummenigge has also quashed suggestions that Bayern have been monitoring the situation of Chelsea’s David Luiz, claiming β€œhe is not an issue for us.”
