Manchester United made bid for Thomas Muller two weeks ago

Published Add your comment

Manchester United are reported to have made a formal approach for Bayern Munich forward two weeks ago as Louis van Gaal bids to reinforce his ranks ahead of his move to the club after the World Cup.

Muller has been linked with a transfer to Manchester United for some time amid supposed uncertainty regarding his future with Bayern Munich, and BILD reports that an offer has been submitted by the Red Devils.

The Germany international himself has fuelled speculation about a potential departure from the Allianz Arena after this week claiming he needs to seek assurances from Bayern that he remains an integral part of their plans.

Manchester United, it would seem, are optimistic of taking advantage of Muller’s current predicament and, while it is unclear of the exact size of their proposal submitted, they have previously been linked with a £35 million bid for the 24-year-old.

Van Gaal is expected to perform something of an overhaul of the squad he has inherited during the summer transfer window, and the acquisition of Muller would certainly go some way to propelling the club into the upper echelons of the Premier League once again.

Along with Muller, Manchester United have also been linked with moves central midfielders Toni Kroos and Cesc Fabregas, while Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels also appears to be in Van Gaal’s sights.
