Officials from Bayern Munich and Juventus have confirmed no conversations have taken place regarding Mario Götze.

"There is no contact with another club," said media director Markus Hörwick said Sunday, according to kicker. Juventus president Giuseppe Moratta acknowledged something similar in his press conference Monday, saying Götze is "a Bayern player and there are no negotiations, rather only an offer."

"Götze fits our demand profile," said Moratta. "Should there be a possibility to get him, we will be the first ones to take the opportunity."

Gazzetta dello Sport reported over the weekend Juventus and Götze's representatives had agreed to a five-year, €30 million contract with bonuses, half of what Götze currently makes currently with Bayern. Kicker reported Monday Götze already rejected an offer from Juventus on Friday.

Götze said in a video Juventus was a "very, very good club" over the weekend, but denied there was anything commenting on. Bayern manager Pep Guardiola assured reporters over the weekend Götze was part of his plans.

"Mario Götze has a contract here. He is a player for Bayern Munich," said Guardiola. "I voice my opinion as a manager, but I learned that here the decision always depends on the club. The club makes the decisions. Mario is a top-player. In my head he stays here."
