Manchester United made a world-record bid for Bayern Munich’s Thomas Muller last summer, according to chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.
Manchester United were repetitively linked with a move for the German centre-forward in the British press, and Rummenigge admits an offer was put in by the club, who were managed by the ex-Bayern Munich manager, Louis van Gaal at the time.
Rummenigge confessed that Manchester United’s offer would have whacked the existing transfer record of £86 million, which Real Madrid paid Tottenham Hotspur for the services of Gareth Bale in 2013.
Bayern Munich swayed Thomas Muller to stay and sign a new contract and Rumenigge admits keeping hold of their star forward symbolized an imperative show of cheekiness.
Current Club: Bayern Munich
- Clinical Finisher
- Good at Aerial Duels
- Key Passes
- Weak at tackling
- Lower work rate at defence
Goals Scored: 32
Shots Per Game: 3
Pass Success Percentage: 76.6%
The stats of Thomas Muller are totally top class, and so is his performance practically as well. The work rate which the German international provides for his team, both club and country is hard to beat and can match the likes of Wayne Rooney, John Terry and Bastian Schweinsteiger when it comes to fight for the team.
His display on the pitch is almost flawless and delivers when his team requires the most.
His move to Manchester United can be the best thing that has happened since Sir Alex left the club. He will without a doubt, be worth every penny of the huge transfer fee that Bayern Munich will put out.
The Red Devils should reawaken their interest in the German attacking midfielder as he can really boost the attacking force of the team by miles.
He is known to have a great stamina and composure which can make him settle in the English football without any difficulties.
Jose Mourinho is the kind of manager who has the needed influence to lure a player of his stature to Old Trafford.
