Bayern Munich won’t be letting Thomas Muller reunite with Louis van Gaal anytime soon.
Louis van Gaal is very fond of his former protege Thomas Muller, but Bayern Munich made sure to squash any hopes of their star striker going to Old Trafford.
According to the Metro, FC Bayern Munich president Karl-Heinz Rummenigge confirmed that the Bundesliga giants had turned down a lucrative transfer offer for Thomas Muller – but didn’t specifically say which club had made the offer.
Rummenigge went so far as to say that the offer was so high that if he were a banker he’d have no choice but to accept the offer.
“I’m talking about figures which were very high indeed,” Rummenigge told Sky Sports. “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.”
Man United were believed to be the club with the most significant interest, with manager Louis van Gaal giving Muller his big break back when he was the club’s manager in 2009.
The 25-year-old Thomas Muller has 76 goals in 200 appearances, along with 11 goals for the German national team between the 2014 FIFA World Cup and 2016 UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying matches.
