‘We Will Not Be Selling Another Player to Manchester United’
Though Thomas Muller is not a traditional striker, he will prove to be an excellent acquisition for Manchester United if the German international were to follow in the footsteps of his idol Bastian Schweinsteiger who is currently touring with the likes of Wayne Rooney and David De Gea. As reported earlier, Muller was reported to have fallen out with manager Pep Guardiola during a training session following the summer break.

At the same time, Bayern Munich will be keen to avoid losing two of their star players to Manchester United in one summer. Karl-Heinz Rummenigge had confirmed earlier that Bayern Munich had received no offers for Muller while making it clear that they were not keen on doing any more business with Manchester United.
“Bastian’s was a very special situation. I can reassure all the fans -we will not be selling another player to Manchester United.”
