The Bayern Munich chairman, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, has rejected speculation that the club will make a summer move for the Schalke attacking midfielder Julian Draxler, a rumoured Arsenal transfer target.

There had been speculation in the German media that Bayern were planning to make a move for Draxler in the summer transfer window but Rummenigge, speaking to Die Welt am Sonntag, rubbished the rumours claiming that Draxler was not in the club's plans.

"We are not buying any player from [Borussia] Dortmund or Schalke just to hurt these clubs," he said. "We are just buying players who can give FC Bayern more quality straight away. I can rule out that we will sign Julian Draxler in the summer," he added.

Rummenigge also said that he expected the striker Mario Mandzukic to remain with the Bavarian club, despite interest from several other clubs as well as the impending arrival of Robert Lewandowski on a free transfer from Dortmund. Mandzukic leads the Bundesliga scoring charts with 17 goals so far this season; Lewandowski is behind him in second with 16 goals to his name.

"I am aware that several clubs are interested in him but I think he will stay past the end of this season," Rummenigge said. "I am noticing something by the players. They know what it means to play for Bayern and they appreciate it. They live in a beautiful city, a beautiful stadium, the best manager and the club is well known internationally."

Meanwhile in the Bundesliga, Bayern, who have drawn Manchester United in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, beat Mainz 2-0 but were forced to delay their title celebrations for another week after Dortmund took three points from their match against Hannover.
