Just when it seemed United’s transfer window dealings were drawing to a close with the pursuit of Pedro, the latest reports indicate, the Reds haven’t given up hope of landing Thomas Muller.
German paper Bild claims United have launched an audacious €85 million bid for the Bayern Munich striker- despite his club’s insistence he’s not going anywhere.
Following the sale of Bastian Schweinsteiger to United, Bayern CEO Karl-Heinze Rummenigge insisted Muller wouldn’t be following his international team-mate.
He said: “I can calm all the worries of all Bayern supporters. We will not let another player leave for Manchester United.”
Those words may be empty though as Bild note that United are willing to make him their biggest signing of the Summer.
If United were to sign Muller it would be a huge coup for Louis Van Gaal to get two star names from his former club, but that’s a big ‘if’.
