Bayern Munich forward Thomas Muller has once again played down speculation linking him with a move to Barcelona, after insisting he has not held talks with the club, reports Sky Sports.
The 24-year-old has been the subject of intense transfer speculation, having been spotted in Spain on a recent visit to the Catalan capital.
With rumours that Gerardo Martino is planning a bid to bring the Germany international to Camp Nou when the transfer window reopens in January, Muller has already been forced to reiterate his commitment to Bayern Munich, saying he has no desire to leave the Allianz Arena.
"I have not been in touch with Barcelona," he told Sky Deutschland. "I do not have to feel ashamed being linked to club like Barcelona.
"But there was nothing in between me and that club."
Content with life at the Bundesliga champions, and under the new stewardship of former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola, Muller sees no reason why he should look to leave Bayern.
"Everyone who knows me is aware Bayern Munich is deep down in my heart," he explained. "I have the desire to stay a player of Bayern Munich for a very long period of time."
After winning a League, Cup and European treble last term, the Bavarian's have started the 2013/14 campaign in similarly scintillating form, and sit top of the Bundesliga with eight wins and two draws from their opening 10 games.
