Bayern Munich issue hands-off warning to Manchester United over key forward Thomas Muller

  • Bayern Munich board member claims club would never be forgiven if they sold Thomas Muller
  • Forward remains of interest to Manchester United, who are struggling for goals in the Premier League

In the latest Manchester United transfer news, a member on the advisory board of Bayern Munich has explained that the Old Trafford outfit will never be allowed to purchase Thomas Muller as the trophy magnet has 'Bayern DNA'.



Muller's situation is a stark contrast to Bastian Schweinsteiger. After all, Bayern sold Schweinsteiger to United at a time when the midfield legend would only have sporadically played for the Bavarian kings, while Muller remains in his prime and a peak-level athlete at just 27-years-old. 

Muller has tactical versatility, can play anywhere across the forward line, is an expert passer and a magnificent finisher. He is also an ever-present force in the German national football team and a fans favourite at club-level, though he could improve on his current haul of two goals and three assists in 15 combined Champions League and Bundesliga appearances this season. 

Regardless, it appears Muller is at Bayern to stay.

Edmund Stoiber, for instance, is quoted by Bild to have said: "No one on the Supervisory Board would vote to sell. It should not happen that Thomas Muller plays at Manchester United. 

"Muller is more than just an excellent footballer. A player like him is part of our DNA. He plays an important role at the club. Muller not only creates emotions with his goals, he talks to the fans hearts."

Stoiber added: "When Bastian Schweinsteiger went to Manchester United, the fans were not happy. He's 32 years old and wanted to experience something new. The members and fans, however, would never forgive us if we sell Thomas Muller. No matter how much money." 

Muller played 65 minutes in Bayern's recent 2-1 win over Bayer Leverkusen and will likely start the upcoming match at Mainz on Friday.
