Arsenal and Man United could be left disappointed this summer as Bayern chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge says Mario Gotze will stay.
The German international suggested that he would have to assess his options this summer following his side’s win over Milan in the Audi Cup on Tuesday night.

After revealing that he has issues with coach Pep Guardiola, Gotze appeared to making interested parties aware that all was not well for him in Bavaria.
However, Rummenigge has stopped all the speculation before it can gather any further momentum by insisting that the 23-year-old has a contract with that club that he believes he will honour, while adding that Mehdi Benatia will not be leaving either.
“As for the German player [Gotze], he’s also tied to our club for the next two years, and I think he’ll stay with us,” he told Sky, as reported by Football Italia.
“I have a feeling that neither of them will leave us, we’re happy to have them with us.”
Gotze has had a frustrating time at Bayern following his move from rivals Dortmund, playing a bit-part role in their success.
Having played just six minutes in their German Super Cup loss to Wolfsburg last weekend, he may well have to push for a move in order to secure a new challenge.
