Manchester United have been dealt a definitive transfer blow by Bayern Munich star Thomas Muller, after the Germany international personally rubbished talk of leaving the Allianz Arena.
Reports this weekend claimed that the Bayern star was keen on reuniting with Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford, and even stated that £35million would be enough to convince his club to sell. This follows speculation that Muller was unsettled under Pep Guardiola and keen to make a switch in order to guarantee himself more game time.
However barely 24 hours after the gossip began the 24-year-old has moved to quell talk of him transferring abroad, confirming that he is more than happy to remain with the Bundesliga champions.
According to the Express, Muller said: “I didn't make these rumours up myself, so I don't particularly want to comment on them too much, but I'm definitely not about to jump ship at Bayern."
"That said, I can't make any guarantees for all time."
Despite having been used as a substitute on numerous occasions this year Muller has managed to bag himself 25 goals in all competitions for Bayern, and so United may have to spend some time pondering on who they can bring in instead of him. His rejection may also serve as a timely reminder that money isn’t the only factor on many players’ minds, ahead of what could turn out to be another frustrating transfer window.
