Thomas Muller has revealed that he was subject to a mammoth offer from Manchester United, and he even considered leaving Bayern Munich.
There were reports of a huge offer from Manchester United for Bayern’s Thomas Muller, which have now been confirmed by the player.
The German attacker has been linked with a move to Old Trafford for years now. It was Bayern’s executive vice-chairman Jan-Christian Dreesen, who had earlier this year, disclosed the information that there was a €100 million offer on the table.
Resonating with Dreesen’s words, Thomas Muller has himself admitted that there was indeed an approach and he even considered joining the English giants. However, in the end, the player ended up staying at the Allianz Arena, as Bayern convinced him that he was a vital player for them.
While talking to Kicker, Muller said: “There was a point, two years ago, when this was an issue, when I thought about it. But the club immediately supported me and they told me, I belonged here. When Bayern told me they needed me and how I am an important player, I did not have to think that much anymore.”
The German international had a poor season last year, and many believe that he isn’t at the center of the plans of boss Carlo Ancelotti, which is why he might seek a move away.
But Muller rubbished those suggestions by saying: “I don’t have the feeling something will happen. I feel very comfortable here. My advantage is that I played my whole career in Munich.”
