Thomas Muller has hit out at the 'crazy' transfer rumours linking him with a €100 million move to Manchester United.

The German international is believed to be high up on Louis van Gaal's transfer hitlist as the window draws to a close, however a deal seems unlikely.

Bayern officials Both Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and Matthias Sammer have both publicly denied that the German World Cup winner will be on the move this summer, with the former insisting that there isn't an offer that would tempt him to sell.

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.”

Manchester United have missed out on the signing of Pedro from Barcelona, with the winger opting to join Chelsea instead. Pedro was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford, only for the Blues to offer more money and seal the deal.

Where do you think Manchester United will finish this season?
