Podolski.. van Buyten not for sale.

According to recent reports, Bayern has put the kibash on the sale of Podolski to Man City or anywhere.

"Our next manager Jurgen Klinsmann has communicated to us a list of the players that are going to be part of his project, and Podolski's name is included.

"Podolski has been under-rated - he is worth much more money. Manchester City are one of the clubs interested but for us this file is closed."

Also of news, is the fact that Daniel van Buyten will be staying with Bayern. Also thanks to Klinsmann.

"Daniel was considering a move to Celtic as well as other clubs in Britain but today things are a little bit different. Jurgen Klinsmann has come to Munich and doesn't think Daniel should leave.

"Celtic are an attractive proposal because of the Champions League and the size of the club but the possibility of that happening is very low. Daniel wants to play and a lot of clubs see him not playing and think they can sign him or there is a possibility of him joining them on loan or permanently.

"But the boy is not ready to leave and is not keen to leave Bayern who want to keep him.
"He is not willing to leave now because he wants to show Jurgen and be ready for the time the new manager arrives.

"Daniel thinks he can do a job for Jurgen and likes what the next manager says. If that situation changes in the future then he might have to leave. "But he wants to prove he should play every week in Germany."
