Wolfsburg boss Felix Magath insists striker Mario Mandzukic has not asked to move to Bayern Munich, but admits a deal could still take place this summer.
The Croatia international raised his profile after scoring three times for his country at Euro 2012, despite their eventual group stage exit.
The 26-year-old's efforts in Poland and Ukraine led to speculation he would leave Wolfsburg this summer, with Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich emerging as frontrunners for his signature.
The German giants are keen on signing a striker this summer and appear to have switched their attentions to Mandzukic after interest in Manchester City's Edin Dzeko cooled.
Magath confirmed earlier this week that a number of clubs were interested in signing the former Dinamo Zagreb star.
However, he has since insisted that the club are under no pressure to sell and the player has yet to indicate a desire to leave.
"If there is a club interested and if that club feels in a hurry regarding a transfer, things can be worked out pretty fast," he told Wolfsburger Allgemeine Zeitung.
"We, as the current club of the player, feel no pressure.
"I am able to imagine Mario Mandzukic is keen to play for a club like Bayern Munich.
"He has, however, not told me that thus far."
