The Euro 2016 qualifiers continued on Monday night, and a summer target for Manchester United continued to show what they’re missing out on.
According to the Metro, United boss Louis Van Gaal was keen on adding German international Thomas Muller to his squad in the transfer window.

And the Bayern Munich star proved exactly why he is regarded as one of the top strikers in Europe with a crucial contribution against Scotland at Hampden Park.
The World Cup holders eventually secured a 3-2 win after a spirited effort from Gordon Strachan’s men, and that ensures that they maintain their two-point lead over Poland at the top of Group D despite their rivals thumping Gibraltar 8-1 in Warsaw.
Elsewhere, Denmark were held to a disappointing 0-0 draw at Armenia, which in turn helped Portugal move a step closer to securing qualification for France 2016.
Former Arsenal striker Nicklas Bendtner could do little to break down a stubborn Armenian defence, and the Danes are now in a precarious position heading into the final few games of qualification.
Portugal left it very late to secure their three points, with Miguel Veloso scoring in the second minute of added time to see them edge out Albania. The victory opens up a three-point gap at the top of Group I, while the Portuguese also have a game in hand.
Meanwhile, there were also wins for the Republic of Ireland and Finland, while Romania and Northern Ireland were left frustrated after being held to draws by Greece and Hungary respectively.
