After Bayern Munich announced that Robert Lewandowski will join the club on a free transfer in the summer, his future team-mate Mario Mandzukic could be on his way out with Manchester United and Arsenal said to be interested, according to The Daily Express.

The Croatian striker has scored 12 goals in 21 games for Bayern this season, however his future may be in doubt due to the arrival of Lewandowski. 

With United's Javier Hernandez's future in doubt, and Arsenal's lack of striking options, both clubs are reported to be interested in Bayern's striker however Munich will only sell in the summer. 

With Juventus interested in making move this month, Bayern Munich chairman came out publicly to announce that the player was not for sale:

"We're very happy with Mario. He made a major contribution to us winning so many titles last year. I just have to think back to the goal in London.

"He's a fantastic player who has come on leaps and bounds with Bayern.

"His contract runs until 2016 and I told his advisor in Marrakech that we would be willing to talk about an extension. We have absolutely no intention of selling Mario."

However, Mandzukic may seek a move away just as Mario Gomez did after he lost his place to Mandzukic himself.
