Bayern Munich will never sell their star forward Thomas Muller to Manchester United, according to former Minister President for Bavaria, Edmund Stoiber.
German superstar Thomas Muller was linked with a move to Manchester United over the last couple of transfer windows. However, the former minister president for Bavaria has now revealed that the aforementioned move will never go through.
Stoiber recently told Bild: “No one on the Supervisory Board would vote to sell. It should not happen that Thomas Muller plays at Manchester United.”
In 2015, Muller was strongly linked with the Old Trafford club, as the then manager of Manchester United, Louis van Gaal, planned a scoop for the Bayern forward. The Dutchman failed in his pursuit for Muller, but ended up bringing Bayern’s midfield maestro Bastian Schweinsteiger to Manchester.

Stoiber also spoke about the former German captain’s move to the Theatre of Dreams, by stating: “When Bastian Schweinsteiger went to Manchester United, the fans were not happy. He’s 32 years old and wanted to experience something new.”
There have been questions regarding Muller’s consistency, and the plan to bench him at Bayern Munich as per the new manager’s tactics isn’t working out for the German striker.
However, those doubts won’t be affecting anyone in the supervisory board at Bayern Munich, as they are ready to reject any offer made by Manchester United.
Edmund Stoiber has therefore, made it clear that the fans won’t be happy if Bayern sell their star talent to United.
“The members and fans would never forgive us if we sell Thomas Muller. No matter how much money,” he said.
