Bayern Munich chairman addresses Thomas Muller exit rumours

Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has spoken about the future of Thomas Muller, a player recently linked with a move to Manchester United.

Any possible interest Manchester United may have in Bayern Munich forward Thomas Muller is likely to fall on deaf ears.

That is according to the Bavarian club’s chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, who has dismissed any suggestion that the Bundesiga champions would be willing to sell the World Cup winner.

Speaking in quotes carried by Bayern’s official website, the club legend poured cold water on the idea of the 25-year-old leaving the Allianz Arena.

"There are some players who just don't have any price tag," he explained Rummenigge.

"We would be out of our minds to sell Muller."

Bild reported on Manchester United’s potential interest in the attacker, earlier this week.

According to the German news outlet, the Red Devils are offering as much as €100 million (£70m) to prise Muller away from Bayern.

Any move would come hot on the heels of the deal that saw former Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger move to Old Trafford.

A teammate of Muller’s at both club and international level, the presence of the 30-year-old within the Red Devils set-up would help to make any transition smooth.

But with Rummenigge appearing to rule out a deal with United for the forward, the Premier League side may now look elsewhere for potential attacking reinforcements.
