It would be a huge decision for any player to leave a club as big as Bayern Munich, but an opportunity to join Manchester United doesn’t come around very often.
Thomas Muller has admitted it could be an “interesting” career choice to leave the Allianz Area but accepts it would be “very difficult” to do so.
Muller has been part of Bayern Munich since joining the club aged just 11 in 2000. He’s not only part of the furniture in Munich, he’s a player that provides a real attacking threat.
United haven’t been linked with Muller this summer, but Ed Woodward should perhaps consider a move if he’s seriously open to leaving Bayern Munich.
With 176 goals in 440 games for the Bundesliga giants, the 28-year-old was wanted by Louis van Gaal when he was United boss. The Dutchman made Muller a first team regular at Bayern in the 2009-10 season, helping the club reach a shock Champions League final.
Sadly, a deal never happened.
“If the situation is different, a lot can happen.
“Basically, it is very difficult to get away from Bayern. Currently, I have no thoughts to do something else.”
Muller also has a World Cup to his name with Germany in 2014 when they beat Argentina in the final. He will be hoping they can retain that trophy in Russia this summer.
