Man United target Thomas Muller was the subject of a huge offer before the transfer deadline, according to Bayern Munich.
Club President Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has revealed that the German giants received an extremely lucrative offer, although he did not disclose details of where the bid came from.
Muller had been linked with United all summer, while Real Madrid were also reportedly interested in the 25-year-old.
However, Rummenigge wouldn’t go into details of the bid, but did insist that it was significant in terms of the numbers involved.
“I’m talking about figures which were very high indeed,” he told Suddeutsche Zeitung. “If I were a bank manager then I would have had to accept it, but as a football club we allowed ourselves to close the door on it, and this door is remaining closed. I can promise that to everybody.
“But one thing is for certain, in view of the increased television money in England things are not going to get any easier for Bayern in future.”
Rummenigge also paid tribute to the top clubs in England for their investment in youth development, although the Premier League broke its spending record for the summer transfer window after splashing out £870m on new signings in total.
