In the latest edition of United Peoples TV’s Transfer Daley series, Sam looks at reports from Spain suggesting Manchester United have tabled a big-money bid for Bayern Munich’s Thomas Muller.
Man United should always be in for the best players and the German certainly falls into that category but it is hard to believe that he will leave Bayern.
The only real hope is that Muller would be persuaded to join due to his good relationship with Louis van Gaal, but supporters shouldn’t hold their breath.
Elsewhere, AS have claimed United have given up hope of keeping David de Gea at the club and that they are now willing to accept a bid from Real Madrid of €35m.
United had been playing hardball with the Spaniard so it would be odd for them to ‘give up’ now having put so much work in.
Meanwhile, former Madrid president Ramon Calderon has insisted that Sergio Ramos will only leave the Spanish side for United.
It looks like the saga will drag on, which is worrying given pre-season is rapidly approaching. Make sure you subscribe to UPTV to keep up with the latest updates.
