Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern have been left furious after hearing news that Chelsea have joined the hunt for one of their prime forward targets.
The Daily Mirror states Chelsea have joined the hunt for the signature of Bayern Munich ace Thomas Muller, seeing the German international as the ideal replacement for Diego Costa.
Costa hit the back pages for the wrong reasons at the weekend after launching a bib at Jose Mourinho in a tantrum after he was told he could not be coming off the bench for the game against Tottenham Hotspur, which finished 0-0.
The Spanish international will not be punished for his actions by the club but it could push him further towards the exit door, with the 27-year-old enduring a disappointing second season in the Premier League.
An arrival at Stamford Bridge for Muller seems unlikely, as Bayern Munich rate their star player extremely highly, with United already hitting a brick wall in their own pursuit of the World Cup winner.
Blues fans at the bar are desperate to bring a player of Muller’s calibre to West London but believe this deal is merely a dream, with no chance of it taking place.
Chelsea fans, is it time to get rid of Diego Costa? Would you want Thomas Muller? Let us know in the comments below!
