Man United still want Thomas Muller, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge claims

The Bundesliga champions also warned Manchester United, to stop making enquiries about the Germany global, as they were not willing to sell.


“I am not a banker”. We are a football club, ‘ he is quoted by German television station Sport1. The German global was one of the key targets for Louis van Gaal earlier in the summer and they were ready to pay any amount to secure his services.

While pundits are bemoaning the lack of excitement in the Bundesliga, Thomas Muller said those complaints fall on deaf-ears in the Bayern dressing room.

Heinz Rummenigge reportedly said: “I told Ed Woodward that I can’t switch off my email account, so he should stop sending offers for Muller”.

Reports throughout the summer linked the Germany worldwide with a move to Old Trafford but the Bavarians refused to enter negotiations despite a potentially record-breaking deal being put on the table.

With United failing to hit the back of the net at the weekend and eventually losing out to Arsenal on a scoreline of 3-0, another striker of Muller’s quality may be what’s needed, with Wayne Rooney under performing and Anthony Martial not capable of doing it on his own every week.

The forward has enjoyed a superb start to the season, scoring eight goals in eight Bundesliga appearances, and helped Pep Guardiola’s side secure a 5-1 victory against Borussia Dortmund on Sunday to underline his importance to Bayern’s cause.


Both were signed as Bayern were found wanting for pace out wide in the Champions League semi-finals last season when Robben and Ribery again picked up injuries.
