Both the Gunners and the Red Devils were linked with approaches for Bayern Munich star Mario Gotze during the post season break, amid speculation that the German World Cup winner was unhappy with his playing time in Bavaria.
A move never materialised and Gotze told Suddeutsche Zeitung that, despite interest from other clubs, he never thought about leaving the Bundesliga champions.
“I never thought about moving. There may well have been other clubs interested in me but I had no interest in leaving Bayern. I feel very, very good here and I’m glad to be a Bayern player.”
The comments have led to very grumpy punters at the bar, who dreamt of luring the former Borussia Dortmund star to the club next year if their side were to revisit their interest. However, it seems any approach would fall on deaf ears.
Arsenal and Manchester United fans, is there any way for you to get Gotze? Let us know in the comments below!
