Manchester United dealt German international transfer blow

Manchester United are set to miss out on German international playmaker target Thomas Muller.

Reports in Germany claimed the Red Devils were considering a bid for the 23-year-old, with manager David Moyes eager to bring the player to Old Trafford from the Allianz Arena.

However, the versatile attacking midfielder – who can also play on the wing – is happy with life in his homeland, and is not considering leaving the club after an incredible season.

Muller scored 13 league goals for Bayern Munich as they claimed the Bundesliga crown, and was influential in both their German Cup and Champions League successes.

"There are always enquiries, especially after a season like that. It's an acknowledgement of my performance,” he told Kicker magazine.

"However, I'm not thinking about leaving Bayern after this season."

It’s easy to see why Muller wants to stay in Munich, with Pep Guardiola set to take the helm and Mario Gotze arriving from arch-rivals Borussia Dortmund.
The news will still come as a blow to Manchester United, with Moyes looking to put his own mark on the Premier League champions after taking over from Sir Alex Ferguson.
Muller won't be joining his Red Devils revolution however, and the Scot will now need to look elsewhere in the summer transfer window.
