He's won the World Cup, the Champions League, six Bundesliga titles and five DFB Pokals, as well as being one of only three men to score five goals in two World Cups.

No wonder Thomas Muller was being sought after during the summer transfer window.

And according to reports emerging from Germany, three Premier League sides were very interested in bringing him to England.

It is fairly well-known in Bavaria that Thomas Muller hasn't exactly found it easy adapting to work with head coach Carlo Ancelotti.

He only scored five goals last season in 29 appearances, his lowest tally since breaking into the Bayern team in 2009.

SportBild have claimed that Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool made enquiries to sign the 27-year-old during the summer, although they were immediately rebuffed by the Bundesliga champions.

The paper doesn't believe that Muller would ideally like to leave the club he has spent 17 years at, but the forward is growing increasingly concerned about his relationship with the Italian.

Muller remained sidelined for the majority of Bayern's 2-0 win against Werder Bremen, after which he went vocal with his criticism of Ancelotti.

"I don’t know exactly which qualities the coach wants to see," he told German broadcaster ARD after the match.

"But mine seem not to be 100 per cent in demand."

SportBild say that the club are worried about the frostiness between the pair, and Bayern are risking losing a fan favourite and idol.

Bayern legend Lothar Matthaus publicly blamed Ancelotti for Muller's dramatic loss of form, with the former Chelsea manager restricting his opportunities despite him still being a regular for Germany.

"Thomas Muller is first-choice for the national team but he's having a hard time at Bayern," he said.

"He's selected less often in the important games in Munich and I am sceptical that this will improve this year.

"This has nothing to do with Muller. He needs a coach who wants him in his team, then Muller will not disappoint.

''Muller isn't a No 7, a No 9 nor a No 10. He is everything and in between. But Carlo Ancelotti thinks and selects his team very strictly according to a player's position."

If the situation worsens between Muller and Ancelotti, we could very well be seeing the German playing in the Premier League before too long.
