Bayern star fancies a move to England
Manchester United are on standby after Bayern Munich forward Thomas Muller admitted that Premier League wage offers are ‘very tempting’.
The German international was the subject of several enquiries by United boss Louis van Gaal during the summer transfer window; rumours even suggested that the Bundesliga champions rejected a Deadline Day bid from the Red Devils.
Reports in Germany claim that Bayern Munich’s Chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has publicly asked the Mancunians to stop sending email enquiries for the 26-year old.
‘playing football is our job’
Bayern are reluctant to let Muller leave the Allianz Arena, however, the versatile attacker has done nothing to end the speculation of a move.
When speaking to German media outlet Welt am Sonntag, he said: “In the end we should not forget that playing football is our job, so people should accept that wages will always play a role in a player’s decision-making.
Of course the wages that are being paid in the Premier League are very tempting, it would be hypocrisy to deny that. You have to look at the complete package to determine whether something is right for you.”
He also added: “What’s good for you one day will not necessarily still be good for you the day after. I know that a lot of German clubs are unhappy with the Premier League clubs’ spending, but I think it is something good for all clubs in the end.”
“It can only be a good thing for football when clubs invest so much money,” insisted the 2014 World Cup winner.
