Thomas Muller has been one of the key players behind Bayern Munich’s success in recent years, as well as the German National Team which won the last World Cup in 2014. One of the most versatile attacking player the game, Muller has been seen playing out on the wings, connecting seamless passes through the middle of the field, and knocking the goals in himself; Muller can do it all when he takes to to the pitch.
Being a key play in a team that has won quite a few trophies over the past few seasons has made Muller a wanted man. Unfortunately for teams wanting the him, Muller is happy in Germany and doesn't seem to want leave his homeland.
Manchester United have been keeping tabs on the German international for some time now and have supposedly put in a €100 million bid for the prolific attacking midfielder. While that is an absurd amount of money, what’s even more absurd is that Bayern have rejected the offer…or have they?
Wikipedia had changed Muller’s official page to say his current team is Manchester United. Wikipedia doesn’t have much in terms of credibility for reporting breaking news, so take from it what you will.
The Premier league side have been on the hunt to buy the perfect starting 11 since Sir Alex Ferguson left and have spent quite a lot of money since then to do so. With purchases of Juan Mata, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Ander Herrera, Luke Shaw, Di Maria and more, United look to reclaim their position at the top of world football.
That could all change if they do end up signing Thomas Muller, as he could bring another dimension to their roster and link up well with new signing and former teammate Bastian Schweinsteiger.
Wikipedia may have since changed Muller’s current club back to Bayern Munich, but just as his status on the site didn’t mean the deal was done, it doesn’t now mean the deal is over. If the money is right Muller could be a Manchester United player by the end of the transfer window.
