Bayern Munich striker Thomas Muller has dismissed speculation linking him with a move to Manchester United.
The Red Devils are weighing up their forward options for this summer, with plenty of doubts surrounding the future of Radamel Falcao.
The Colombian is on loan at Manchester United until the end of the season with the club retaining an option to make the move permanent for around £43 million, however things aren't going too well.
He's managed just three goals for Manchester United so far and has started just seven league games. His latest setback came when he was left out of the entire match day squad for the defeat against Southampton, with youngster James Wilson taking his place on the bench.
It is being reported that Manchester United are looking at alternatives to the £265,000-per-week striker, and have been linked with the likes of Edinson Cavani, Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale.

The latest name to be added to that list is Muller, who would reportedly cost the Red Devils around £45 million. he recently signed a new long-term contract at the Allianz Arena, and is looking to help his side claim another Bundesliga title as well as Champions League glory this season.
However the German World Cup winner has had his say on the speculation, insisting that he is no intention of leaving Bayern Munich any time soon. “I think that talk is only for the newspapers,” he said.
“Last summer I extended my contract until 2019. I can't imagine that someone will try to make an offer. I don't think that would work."
It appears as though Manchester United will have to look elsewhere for a new forward given Muller's quotes, and with doubts over Robin van Persie's future too it looks as though it will be a busy summer at Old Trafford this year.
