Bayern Munich says club “cannot put a price” on Thomas Muller

Thomas Muller has been with Bayern Munich since he was a ten-year-old boy.

Since then, he has made more than 300 appearances for the club, scoring 123 goals and winning every trophy imaginable.

Despite already achieving status as a club legend at just 25, rumors have been swirling this summer about a possible move for the star striker away from the Allianz Arena.

Last season it was reported that Muller and Bayern manager Pep Guardiola did not see eye-to-eye, and Muller was linked with a move to Manchester United where he would rejoin Louis van Gaal, the manager who made him a regular in the Bavarians’ first-team.

German newspaper Bild reported that Manchester United had lodged a $94 million bid to bring Muller to Old Trafford, an offer most clubs would find hard to turn down. However, Bayern’s sporting director Matthias Sammer has said there is no price that can persuade the club to sell.

It is not Thomas who is causing the fuss, it is his performances. And we can’t do anything about that.

[Chief executive] Karl-Heinz Rummenigge is right, he is a player that we cannot put a price on.”

Bayern has already sold one of the faces of the club to Manchester United this summer, when Bastian Schweinsteiger made the move after 13 seasons in Munich. If Muller was to leave also, it would be just as devastating off the pitch as it would be on it.

That move doesn’t look likely though, as the Bayern executive board has stood strong in their stance that Muller is not up for sale, no matter what sum is offered. However, expect these rumors to keep coming until the transfer window closes on September 1.
