Bayern Munich sporting executive Matthias Sammer has insisted that Thomas Muller will stay in Germany despite interest from Manchester United.
Sport Bild claimed on Tuesday that Man United had made a fresh €85m bid for the forward.
However, Sammer revealed that Muller “has no price tag” and that he will not be sold.
“His performances have caused a stir, not Thomas,” said Sammer.
“We can’t be blamed for anything but this. Rummenigge was right when pointing out that he is a player who has no price tag.”
The press continue to persist with the rumours but it’s abundantly clear that Muller will not be leaving Bayern. While the German would be the ideal fit for United, Ed Woodward and Louis van Gaal will have to look elsewhere for goalscoring potency.
In light of Wayne Rooney‘s recent disappointing displays in front of goal, van Gaal needs to locate a top striker who will challenge the captain for a starting place and perhaps expel the current notion of the striker being indispensable.
