Thomas Muller wants to leave Bayern Munich and join Bastian Schweinsteiger at Manchester United, a sensational report in the Sunday Express claims.
Louis van Gaal has already seen a sensational €100million bid turned down by the German champions with chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge determined to hold onto him.
But the United manager is continuing his pursuit as the transfer window enters its final few weeks and it seems that Muller himself is keen to make the move.

It is believed that the striker, who scored twice in a 5-0 win over Hamburg on Friday, has a difficult relationship with Pep Guardiola and is ready to reunite with Van Gaal; the man who helped bring him through the ranks at the Allianz Arena.
Guardiola is also ready to do business at €100m, but finds himself at odds with Bayern chiefs. Muller's desire to swap Bavaria for Manchester could help him to finally get his way.
The 25-year-old has told friends that he would very interested in joining his international team-mate Schweinsteiger, who himself has been delighted with his first few weeks as a Manchester United player.
There is no doubt that Muller would also see his wages rise significantly. Some reports have suggested that Manchester United would be willing to pay him as much as £160,000-a-week.
Manchester United are committed to smashing their own £59.7m British transfer record, spent on Angel di Maria last season, by launching a renewed attempt to sign him before the window closes.
