Bayern Munich ace Thomas Muller has ruled out a transfer to the Premier League this summer, amid reports of Manchester United’s heavy interest, by insisting he is happy in Bavaria and wants to see out his contract with the Bundesliga champions.
Muller has been heavily linked to the Red Devils since Louis Van Gaal, the man that handed the German international his Bayern debut, moved to the club last summer. Recent reports have suggested that United are preparing a bumper £120m pay-package to lure the World Cup winner to Old Trafford.
However, despite admitting he was flattered by United’s interest, Muller ruled out a move when speaking to Sport Bild as he said:
“When you get an offer you consider it automatically. A request by a big club is an honour and appreciation that your output was good.”
“But I feel fine at Bayern and my contract runs until 2019. There is nothing more to say about this speculation.”
The news follows a similar statement from Bastian Schweinsteiger last week, who will turn down a move to United as he aims to ‘create history’ with Bayern.
