Manchester United have no chance of signing Thomas Muller from Bayern Munich, as the club will never consider a sale- according to CEO Karl-Heinze Rummenigge.
Manchester United were linked with a mega-bid in the summer, which was rejected by the Bavarian side, whilst Sir Alex Ferguson recently revealed that the Red Devils had made approaches to sign the World Cup winner when he was 10.
Whilst United may still have hopes of luring the Bavarian striker to Manchester, they have been told to forget about their plans as Rummenigge dubbed the forward ‘priceless’ and compared the 26-year-old to Barcelona’s Lionel Messi when speaking to Bild.
“Muller will stay at Bayern, regardless of what any club offers. There is no amount that would make us consider an offer.”
“He’s a special type, different than anyone we’ve ever had at the club, on and off the pitch.”
“There might be players out there who have a better technique and who are faster, but there is no second Thomas Muller in this world.”
“He is extremely valuable to us. He represents the Mia San Mia (we are we) feeling at Bayern.”
With eight goals in as many games for the Bundesliga side this season it’s easy to see why United were eying his signature but any advances will fall on death ears, as the Bavarian club adore their icon.
