Bayern Munich chiefs respond to Thomas Muller to Man Utd transfer links

Mirror Online Sports 1 month ago

Bayern Munich bosses have played down the chances of Thomas Muller leaving the club this January amid strong links to Manchester United .

The experienced German striker has been out of favour this season, with United chief Ed Woodward giving the all-clear for manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to splash £125m on Muller and Bayer Leverkusen midfielder Kai Havertz from the Bundesliga.

Muller has been on United's radar in the past and never yet made it to Old Trafford - and it seems they might be unlikely to get their man in the next transfer window.

But despite rubbishing claims he could leave midway through the season, Bayern Munich bosses Hasan Salihamidzic and Karl-Heinze Rummenigge have refused to rule out a summer departure.

Sporting director Salihamidzic told Sky Sport : "That’s a story you want to write [Muller being sold].

“We have two players out for months and you are trying to tell us to sell a player.

“There’s no reason for doing this.”

Those comments were echoed by CEO Rummenigge, who stated he "cannot imagine" Muller being sold any time soon.

Muller, 30, has been used mostly off the bench so far this season, prompting doubts over his future in Munich.

And he recently admitted his role could prompt him to consider his future.

"If the coaches only see me as a substitute in future, then I have to start having a think,” Muller told German magazine Kicker.

“I’m too ambitious for that.

"I've only just turned 30, I'm top fit and I'm hungry for success, both with Bayern and also personally.

“I'm absolutely convinced that I can help the team with my abilities."
