Thomas Muller responds to Manchester United transfer speculation

Manchester Evening News Sports 1 month ago

Bayern Munich star Thomas Muller has played down reports linking him with Manchester United ahead of the January transfer window.

The German, who has also been linked with Inter Milan, is said to be growing increasingly frustrated with the bit-part role under Bayern boss Niko Kovac. 

The World Cup winner has only started three out of eight league games this season, with the Bavarian giants currently third in the table behind Borussia Monchengladbach and Wolfsburg.

Following Bayern’s win on Tuesday in the Champions League against Olympiacos, Muller stated: "I try to focus on playing football and gradually all the speculation will die down a bit."

The German started the game in Greece, where a resilient Bayern side managed to fend off a late fightback from the Greek outfit to win the game 3-2.

Olympiacos went ahead through Youssef El-Arabi before a brace from in-form Pole Robert Lewandowski and a Corentin Tolisso goal put Bayern 3-1 up.

Guilherme dos Santos Torres pulled one back with 10 minutes to go but Niko Kovac’s side held on to ensure their perfect start to the Champions League group stages were in tact.

United have been urged to sign more talent in the January transfer window, with legend Paul Scholes having urged the club to purchase up to three attacking midfielder and forward players.

 

The Red Devils made a €100million bid for Muller in 2015 under then manager Louis van Gaal but he decided to stay put.
