Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has insisted that former Manchester United target Thomas Muller is not for sale at any price.
Muller has been a consistent source of goals for the German outfit in recent years, with this strike voted as his best effort from last season.
According to Sky Sports, the German international was linked with a move to Old Trafford by the British press this summer, although no move materialised despite the fact that it would have handed him the opportunity to reunite with Louis van Gaal.
The 26-year-old has eight goals in eight games so far this season, and Rummenigge has insisted that any interested clubs would be wasting their time if they attempted to sign him.
“Muller will stay at Bayern, regardless of what any club offers. There is no amount that would make us consider an offer,” he told Bild, as reported by Sky Sports.
“Messi belongs to Barcelona, Rooney belongs to Manchester United and Muller belongs to Bayern. It should stay like that.
“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.”
The World Cup winner has established himself as an integral player for both club and country with his goalscoring ability, although he perhaps lacks the all-round game to be compared and be on the same level as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
Nevertheless, there is no doubting his importance to Bayern and the Bundesliga champions will hope that their striker can fire them towards more success this season in what could be Pep Guardiola’s last year in Bavaria given that his current contract expires at the end of the campaign.
