Speculation regarding the Croatia international's future has intensified during the winter transfer window.

Mandzukic was already being linked with the likes of Arsenal prior to the announcement that Borussia Dortmund's Robert Lewandowski is to move to the Allianz Arena as a free agent over the summer.

Bayern have always maintained that there is space in their squad for multiple frontmen, and they are not about to relax that stance.

Club president Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has assured Mandzukic that he still has a role to play and would be prepared to discuss an extension to a contract which is due to run until 2016.

He told BILD: "We are absolutely content with Mario Mandzukic. He has outperformed our expectation and we will keep him at Bayern Munich.

"We are willing to sign a new contract with him and I don't think he would be against those talks."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
