Manchester United remain short of striker options despite the fact they have picked up two wins from two Premier League games so far, with Wayne Rooney seeming out of form as their first choice, with Javier Hernandez behind the England international.
Reports in Germany this week claim that the Red Devils have made an offer worth around £85 million for Muller's services - and now the forward has responded to the rumours.
Speaking in an interview with German outlet Sport1, Muller said when asked about the speculation: “It’s basically crazy the numbers which are currently kicking around in football – that’s just business.
“In Dresden, a fan addressed me with a megaphone: ‘Hey €100m man, what is your playing shirt worth?’ That made me smile.”
