Reports of Manchester United offering €100m for Bayern Munich star Thomas Muller emerged earlier in the week, and whilst some have disputed that such an offer was made, it is well known that United are interested in the World Cup winner.
Muller confirmed that United made an approach for him last summer and despite, being interested he refused the move. This apparently hasn’t deterred United though, as their interest in the 25 year old remains.
But having already snagged Bayern Munich talisman Bastian Schweinsteiger, CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is determined to ensure that he is the only player to swap the Allianz Arena for Old Trafford this summer.
Rummenigge previously said that Schweinsteiger would not be joining United, but was forced to eat humble pie when the midfielder mad the switch but he has defiantly declared that Muller won’t follow in his steps, labelling the big game player priceless.
Asked about United’s interest in the player, Rummenigge told German news agency SID:
“There are players who do not have a price tag”
Muller’s circumstance is of course different to Schweinsteiger’s, and you get the impression that United will have to turn their attention to another player as Bayern dig their heels in over the star.
