Thomas Muller opens the door to Manchester United

Published Add your comment

Bayern Munich striker Thomas Muller is one of the most lethal forwards in Europe. The German international, who won the Golden Boot award at the 2010 World Cup, would be a dream striker for any team in the world. 

He has scored 20 goals in all competitions this season, managing 18 assists also, but speculation remains about his future at the Allianz Arena.

Muller, 25, currently has two years left on his contract with Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich, but the German as opened the door to a possible transfer to Manchester United.

Muller spoke about a possible reunion with Red Devils boss Louis Van Gaal, although a transfer this season is not expected.

"It's a secret for nobody," Muller said. "Louis Van Gaal and I have a relationship that goes beyond that which is normal between a player and a coach."

"However, I have a contract with Bayern until 2017."

The relationship between Van Gaal and Muller is a special one, with the former Dutch coach giving Muller his debut during his time at the helm of Bayern Munich. Van Gaal has reportedly tried to sign the 25-year-old German twice since his appointment at Old Trafford.

Muller and current Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola are reportedly not on good terms, and that looked evident when the player was substituted in Bayern's 3-0 defeat to Barcelona. 

With a permanent transfer for Radamel Falcao highly unexpected, it makes sense that Van Gaal will look to bolster his strike force in the near future. I'd be surprised if the transfer happened during the next window, but you can never say never in football.

Manchester United fans, would you like to see Muller lead the line at Old Trafford? Would he link up well with Memphis Depay? Let us know in the comments section!
