Though Thomas Miuller is certainly one of Louis van Gaal’s personal favorite targets, the Bundesliga star is fine where he is. Can LvG convince him otherwise?

Manchester United have put together a massive offer for Bayern Munich striker Thomas Muller, but although the offer is flattering, Muller isn’t inclined to bite.
According to the Daily Mail and the Metro, Man United have offered a major package worth around £113 million in exchange for Muller – an offer the German star acknowledged receiving and felt flattered by.
“When a request comes, automatically you deal with it,” Muller said in response to inquiries about his future. “And a request from a big club is an honor and a reward that one’s performance is good.”
But the German star made it clear that he’s happy in Germany and ruled out any speculation before the end of his contract – which goes through 2019.
“…I feel well at Bayern, and my contract runs until 2019. I will not say any more about the Speculations.”
Back in May, Muller admitted that the connection he has with Man United boss Louis van Gaal is a “relationship that goes beyond that which is normal between a player and a coach.”
Van Gaal was in his first year as the manager of Bayern Munich when he gave Muller his big break and started him for 34 games in each of his seasons with the club. On the international level, Muller became a star for the German National Team, recording 27 goals since 2010 and 5 goals during their 2014 FIFA World Cup Championship run.
Manchester United is reportedly looking into possible replacements for Radamel Falcao and Robin van Persie should they fail to impress in the final leg of the season – which would prompt plenty of speculation about reuniting the Man United club boss with one of his greatest proteges.
Van Gaal’s club is looking to make a major spending spree this summer and is eager to get back to the top of the mountain in the Premier League and the Champions League.
