Another United-admired Bundesliga attacker says NO to Bayern

Bayer Leverkusen star Son Heung-Min has followed in Marco Reus’ footsteps by stating that he would turn down a move to the European champions.

With Bayern Munich tempting the likes of Mario Gotze and Robert Lewandowski away from Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund, a number of other players in Germany have been linked with a switch to Bavaria – only for the player to refute the claims.

Marco Reus was reported as saying that he would not follow in the footsteps of the afore-mentioned duo and would not sign for Pep Guardiola’s men given the chance.

Meanwhile, another rising star of the domestic game in Germany has stated that he would knock back an approach from the Allianz Arena outfit.

Son Heung-Min is impressing for Bayer Leverkusen this term, scoring seven goals to date following his move from Hamburg in the summer.

The South Korea international is thought to have opted to move to the BayArena outfit ahead of switching to Manchester United in the summer and has stated that he has no interest in moving to Bayern now.

"I would not go to Bavaria. In Leverkusen, I have just a very happy time. Why should I go now?” Son told BILD.

"Sure, Bayern is a top club. Bayern has the best team in the world. And they are getting better. But the competition is much greater, and I want to play a lot. I have a lot of fun and want to stay longer.”

The sheer strength in depth in the Bayern squad seems to be the reason for Son’s comments, which could well be a factor when the European champions battle for other stars in the near future – like Arsenal target Julian Draxler.
