Bayern Munich chief refuses to rule out Thomas Muller departure amid Manchester United links
Bayern Munich chief Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has refused to rule out the departure of Thomas Muller in the summer transfer window.
Muller has been linked with Manchester United as it seems his former manager, Louis van Gaal, who gave him his first opportunity at Bayern is set to take over.
David Moyes was sacked recently, leaving Ryan Giggs in caretaker charge of the club while they pursued a new manager – thought to be van Gaal.
When prompted with the rumours that Muller could leave, Rummenigge could not deny them.
“Muller’s situation? If a player does not feel well at Bayern Munich, he should come to my office,” Rummenigge was quoted as saying in Bild.
“We will have to talk about things like that.”
Muller has a contract still running until 2017 at Bayern so the fee to take him away from the reigning European champions would be a substantial one.
The German has been a star of German football for a number of years now after first breaking through at Bayern in 2009 then making an impact on the World Cup a year later.
He has since won everything he possibly can do at club level with the German giants, including a treble last season, followed up by several more trophies this season.
