Bayern Munich's director of football Christian Nerlinger has rejected speculation linking the German giants with a move for Shakhtar Donetsk's Croatia international Darijo Srna. The versatile 27-year-old has been with the Ukrainian club, the current UEFA Cup holders, for six years and has also been linked with a move to England this summer. Nerlinger told Bild: "I can rule out that we are to make a move for Darijo Srna. "We do not feel pressured by the sale of Lucio as we are always considering what is going on. "In addition, we also have a lot of good young players inside our academy we always keep our eyes on." Srna, who can play anywhere down the right flank, has won well over 50 caps for his country and has played at the last two European Championship finals, as well as the 2006 World Cup finals.
