Bayern reveal United snub over Muller

15 February 2017 07:57:18 EST

Bayern Munich executive vice-chairman Jan-Christian Dreesen has confirmed the club did turn down a big-money deal from Manchester United for Germany international Thomas Muller over the summer.

The Red Devils have long been linked with the clinical finisher, who has struggled for game time this season, only scoring four goals in all competitions.

United did spend big over the summer with the likes of Eric Bailly, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Paul Pogba all fresh faces through the doors at Old Trafford.

However Muller's signature went begging and Bayern have now confirmed they had no plans to allow the 27-year-old to leave the Allianz Arena.

When asked if an offer of more than €100m came from United, Dreesen conceded the Red Devils did table a bid for Muller's services.

He said: "There really was such a thing.

"Then came a fax from England. For us, however, a sale of Thomas Muller was never discussed."

It does appear that United may have turned their attentions to fresh targets, with Atletico Madrid star Antoine Greizmann thought to be at the top of manager Jose Mourinho's wishlist this summer.

United are 4500/1 to win the Premier League this season, while they are 8/1 to win the FA Cup this term.
