Everything appears to be A-OK for Thomas Muller in Germany, especially after he wrecked Hamburg this past week.
Louis van Gaal is extremely high on his former striker Thomas Muller as a Man United transfer target – but Muller appears to be a little less enthusiastic.
According to the Metro, Muller declined to answer questions about Man United’s recent decision to launch an estimated £50 million bid for his transfer.
“I don’t know, you have to ask him (Louis Van Gaal),” Muller said, following a two-goal performance in a 5-0 win over Hamburg. “I am the wrong man for this question.”
This past week it was reported that Man United were willing to pay the former LVG protege as much as £7.1 million-a-year to play at Old Trafford. Van Gaal coached Muller to a Bundesliga title when they worked together from 2008 to 2011.
Thomas Muller is coming off yet another strong year with his 3rd straight season with 13 league goals and 20+ total goals. He has also been sensational for the German national team, recording six goals in Germany’s run to the 2014 FIFA World Cup Final.
Though the Red Devils have been defensively sharp since the season opener, many speculate that Wayne Rooney can’t hold down the No. 1 striker position by himself forever if the team hopes to win the Premier League.
