Bayern Munich turned down a stunning €100nillion bid from Manchester United for Thomas Muller last summer, according to the club’s executive vice-chairman Jan-Christian Dreesen, per Sky.

United made the approach when Jose Mourinho replaced Louis van Gaal as boss of the Red Devils, who would later go on to spend £145million on Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pogba, who cost a world-record fee from Juventus.

Thomas Muller Euros

According to the article, United are now planning a swoop for Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann, but Bayern claim they wanted to sign Muller.

“There really was such a thing,” he said.

“Then came a fax from England. For us, however, a sale of Thomas Muller was never discussed.

“If a player fits us, we would be stupid to give him a short-term prospect of a record profit and to weaken him.”

Muller is usually prolific goalscorer, but he has struggled under Carlo Ancelotti this season, scoring just four goals in 17 Bundesliga games.
