Once again Bayern striker Thomas Muller has been forced to deny reports that he will move to Manchester United.
Earlier in the summer transfer window United diced a bid of around £60millio for Muller AND it was straight away rejected. But earlier this month the 26-year-old German star admitted Premier League’s big wages are very tempting and money could lure him to England. Manchester United received a huge boost after hearing the sensational revelation by Bayern Munich star Thomas Muller.
Dramatically, Bayern’s chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge publicly gave a warning to the Red Devils to stop any kind of scouting regarding the World Cup winner’s availability, describing Muller as the heart of Bayern Munich.
“I heard what Rummenigge said and it’s nice for me to hear it,” Muller told the in a recent interview.
“There are never any guarantees in football, but I do have a four-year contract and when I go on the pitch and hear fans shout my name, that’s something special.”
When questioned about Louis van Gaal’s interest in him, Muller’s answer was: “The club, as Rummenigge showed, denied it straight away, so it’s not up for discussion.”
Manchester United now has only three recognised senior striker in the first team in the likes of Wayne Rooney, Anthony Martial and James Wilson. So another world-class striker who has a knack of scoring goals along with providing assists regularly would be highly welcomed.
The German international’s long-term teammate Bastian Schweinsteiger is also now reunited with his ex-boss van, Gaal. United thought, may be Muller is also thinking of following the footsteps of Bastian after he gave the hint about his move earlier. The Bavarians home grown lad Muller has scored stunning 132 goals in 316 matches for his present club. He has still four years left in his contract of £110,000-a-week. It was always a tough challenge for van Gaal to lure him as Bayern are still reluctant to let their star goalscorer leave.
