Man United transfers: Thomas Muller won’t leave Bayern, says expert

Bayern Munich won't sell Thomas Muller to Manchester United this summer, according to Jan Aage Fjortoft

Bayern Munich won’t sell Thomas Muller to Manchester United despite interest from the Red Devils, according to Jan Aage Fjortoft.

The Germany international has emerged as a target for Louis van Gaal as the United manager looks to add more competition for Red Devils captain Wayne Rooney up front.

Muller opened his account for the 2015/16 campaign on Friday night after the striker scored twice in an impressive 5-0 victory over Hamburg in their season opener.

The 25-year-old is reportedly valued at £71.2m by the German champions, and Bundesliga expert Fjortoft can’t see Pep Guardiola allowing the forward to leave.

United have already snapped up Bastian Schweinsteiger from Bayern Munich this summer as Van Gaal looks to transform his side into genuine Premier League title contenders next season.
