Thomas Muller has given his reaction to Bastian Schweinsteiger's transfer to Manchester United.

German international Thomas Muller has given his reaction to Bastian Schweinsteiger's move to Manchester United.

The Red Devils confirmed on their official website over the weekend they had an agreement with Bayern Munich to sign Schweinsteiger.

Muller is a teammate of the midfielder for his national team, and until now, for his entire career at Bayern Munich.

He told German channel Sport1: "That Basti is gone is strange. He was sensational for the club. Everybody will not soon forget him here.

"I wish him the best of luck. But such is the football business."

Muller himself was linked with a Bayern exit last week to Old Traffod, with Manchester United said by Sport1 to be willing to pay €82 million - which works out at £58.3 million, for the attacker.

Can anything be gleamed from his reaction?

There is nothing overt in Muller's comments which suggest he is leaving Bayern any time soon, but it would be a surprise if he were to make such a statement unannounced.

Seeing Schweinsteiger move on could stir his curiosity, having won everything possible at Bayern so far in his career, at only 25.

His comment about the transfer simply being part of the football business indicates he realises that one day it could be him. United will have to make Bayern an offer they can't refuse in order to make it happen.
