Manchester United has been linked with a move for World Cup-winning German midfielder Thomas Muller. The Bayern Munich midfielder is said to be willing to leave the Bundesliga champions in the January transfer window.
The 30-year-old has won eight Bundesliga titles and a Champions League trophy since making his Bayern debut in 2008. But German outlet Bild claims Muller is unhappy with his lack of playing time and has asked for permission to quit.
The forward has started just three of Bayern’s seven Bundesliga games this season and was an unused substitute in last week’s 7-2 thrashing of Tottenham in the Champions League.
He is behind Serge Gnabry, Kingsley Coman and Philippe Coutinho in the pecking order at the Allianz Arena.
He has been a big part of Bayern Munich’s success in the past 10 years and has scored 110 goals in 375 goals so far. Manchester United was interested in the player after the 2014 World Cup in Brazil but the move did not materialize.
The Red Devils are in need of a natural goalscorer after losing Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan and the injury suffered to Anthony Martial. The team has only scored more than one goal twice this season which is impacting their results.
They are currently 12th on the log with nine points which is just tow better than Everton who are in the relegation zone.
