Mario Gomez: Expected to leave Bayern Munich within the next fortnight

The agent of Bayern Munich and Germany striker Mario Gomez has denied suggestions his client is heading to Fiorentina, although the chances of him leaving the European champions remain high.

The 27-year-old struggled to hold down a regular starting berth in the Bayern team last season after missing much of the first half of the campaign injured.

Mario Mandzukic's form also meant he was only second choice under Jupp Heynckes, and the chances of that changing under Pep Guardiola next season appear slim.

Fiorentina are one club understood to be interested in his services to replace Stevan Jovetic, who has expressed a desire to leave Florence this summer, but they face competition from Serie A rivals Juventus and Napoli.

Reports yesterday claimed Fiorentina had won the race for Gomez, although his agent Uli Ferber told Sport1 television that was not the case.

"That's not true," he said when asked today.

Nevertheless, Gomez's days as a Bayern striker appear to be numbered with Ferber expecting to reveal the identity of his new employers within 10 days.

"It's not going to be a major assignment (finding a new club)," he said.

"But one thing is for sure - he will only go to a club where he will be a first-choice striker."

Gomez has scored a total of 113 goals for Bayern in 174 games since joining from Bundesliga rivals Stuttgart in 2009.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
