Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge: Manchester United target Thomas Muller is not for sale

Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has confirmed that Thomas Muller will not be leaving the club this summer.

Manchester United have reportedly offered the German champions £70m for the striker during this transfer window.

After the departures of Robin van Persie to Fenerbahce and Radamel Falcao to Chelsea, Louis van Gaal is in search of a new striker to beef up United’s attack.

However, Rummenigge has insisted that the Dutchman must look elsewhere for an accomplished goalscorer.

“There are some players who just don’t have any price tag. We would be out of our minds to sell Muller,” he said.

Muller, who has netted 121 goals for Bayern in seven seasons, would be the ideal antidote for an ailing strike force that only managed 30 goals between them last term.

But after prizing Bastian Schweinsteiger away from the Allianz Arena, it’s no surprise that Bayern are reluctant to sell any more of their players to van Gaal.

After already declaring that Wayne Rooney is United’s first-choice striker, van Gaal has a difficult job in finding a world-class forward who is happy to play second fiddle to the 29-year-old.
