Gomez: Linked with Schalke
Bayern Munich director of sport Christian Nerlinger has admitted that he is getting angry about rumours linking striker Mario Gomez with a move away from the German champions.
The Germany international's future has been cast into doubt following manager Louis van Gaal's announcement that he is looking to offload a forward this summer.
Last season's runners-up Schalke are reported to be considering an offer for Gomez, but Nerlinger insists that speculation has been blown out of proportion.
He told Sportinformationsdienst: "I am unhappy about the rumours regarding his (Gomez's) future.
"The manager came up with a statement on his situation and this then became a big fuss.
"The manager did not just make a statement on the one player. Mario Gomez has a valid contract with our club, he is a player of Bayern Munich."
Gomez signed for Bayern in 2009 from Stuttgart and is under contract at the Allianz Arena until June 2013.
