Mario Gomez: Reluctant to be drawn into a debate regarding his future

With his place in the Bayern starting XI having been taken by Mario Mandzukic, it has been suggested that Gomez could be offloaded in the summer.

His prolific strike rate in the Bundesliga would make him an appealing acquisition for many of Europe's top clubs.

Gomez is, however, keen to point out that he is not looking for a move and would welcome the opportunity to form part of an exciting new era for Bayern under Pep Guardiola in 2013/14.

He told Tuttosport: "The rumours about a move away from Bayern? It's not a topic I like to discuss.

"It's not an ideal situation for me, but the question must be put to Bayern, it's not up to me to decide my future.

"Club leaders have already said that I won't be sold, so there is nothing more to say. I'm very happy at Bayern and in Munich.

"The interest of other clubs flatters me, but at the moment I am only thinking about Bayern and the goals we need to achieve.

"It's true that I am playing very little, and of course I am very disappointed when I am left out of big matches. We will have to see what type of game Guardiola wants to play and whether I can be of use to him.

"If I become aware that I will be facing another season on the bench, then I would revise my thoughts and choices. But it is still too early to talk about that."

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
