Manchester United were close to Muller deal

mullerManchester Evening News have managed to get Manchester United fans looking up open mouthed here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they claim that the club were close to a deal for Thomas Muller this summer.

This is according to Bayern Munich president Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, who claimed that if Bayern and Muller were only interested in money, the player would have joined Manchester United.

Now as one of our punters notes over a couple of pints, it doesn’t really come as a shock that United made a huge bid for the striker, considering how talented the player is and how desperate Louis van Gaal was for a forward, but we think the player did the right thing to stay where he was and will have far more success with the German club.

United fans. Would Muller have made a title winning difference to you? Let us know your thoughts below.
