Newsflash, newsflash; Bayern Munich’s Thomas Muller wants to join Manchester United this summer – well that is according to The Mirror who have sensationally reported that the German international could yet arrive at Old Trafford before September 1st.
According to the reports, United have already seen two bids for the World Cup winner turned down by Pep Guardiola’s side but for whatever reason, the paper believes Louis van Gaal can still pull a deal off.
While our resident Red Devils fanatics by the bar would love some more concrete indications that Muller is keen on a switch, these same fans can’t help but think just how the German would fit into their new-look team.
An incredibly lethal customer, Muller is definitely a world class player in his own right and while he doesn’t score the amount of goals Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo do – I mean who does – he certainly weighs in with his fair share over the course of a season.
With Wayne Rooney having not set anything alight in his first two games in the number 9 position, many United fans would like to see van Gaal pull something out of the bag regarding a striker while following up on his promise of a “surprise” signing a few weeks back.
While United fans get all dreamy over Muller’s potential signing, we’ve devised a list of five players who could partner him up front for United.
