Manchester United told Thomas Muller is not for sale by Bayern Munich

Bayern Munich chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has warned Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal to give up his pursuit of Thomas Muller.

United have been linked with Muller on multiple occasions this summer, but Rummenigge insists Bayern Munich are not prepared to sell the German World Cup winner - regardless of how much money the Red Devils are prepared to spend.

"Louis van Gaal is very stubborn,” Rummenigge was quoted as saying by DW Sports, “but there is no price for Thomas Müller.”

It was reported earlier this summer that Manchester United were prepared to pay as much as €100 million for Muller, 25, who has scored 48 goals in his previous two seasons with Bayern Munich.

This isn’t the first time this summer Rummenigge has told Manchester United to back off via the press. Shortly after news broke last month that the Red Devils were planning a €100 million offer, the chief executive told reporters: "There are some players who just don't have any price tag. We would be out of our minds to sell Muller."

Bayern Munich are not selling Thomas Muller

Bayern Munich have already sold one fan favourite to Manchester United this summer - Bastian Schweinsteiger completed his move to Old Trafford from the Allianz Arena - and it seems there is now no realistic chance of the Bundesliga champions also agreeing to sell Muller.

Pep Guardiola, Bayern Munich’s manager, also confirmed in his press conference on Thursday that Muller will still be at the Allianz Arena after September 1.

While Muller would undoubtedly be a fantastic addition to Manchester United’s squad, Van Gaal would be best off looking towards other attack-minded players with Bayern Munich making it crystal clear they aren’t prepared to do business.
