Bayern Munich Star Thomas Muller Responds To Man Utd Transfer Speculation

Thomas Muller has distanced himself from reports linking him with a move to Manchester United.

The Bayern Munich forward has reportedly emerged as a target for both the Red Devils and Serie A side Inter Milan in recent weeks.

Reports in Germany have suggested the 30-year-old is ready to leave the Bundesliga giants in January after growing frustrated at his lack of game-time former Niko Kovac’s team this season.

The World Cup winner has started just three of Bayern’s eight league fixtures this season, with the defending champions currently third in the table behind Borussia Monchengladbach and Wolfsburg.

According to German publication Bild, Muller has been on United’s wishlist since Louis van Gaal’s tenure at Old Trafford, but the forward has insisted he is trying not to pay attention to the rumours surrounding his future.

Speaking after Tuesday’s Champions League win over Olympiacos, Muller said: “I try to focus on playing football and gradually all the speculation will die down a bit.”

Despite coming off the bench in each of Bayern’s last four Bundesliga matches, Muller was handed a rare start in Europe as the German champions held on to secure a 3-2 win in Greece.

Youssef El-Arabi put the hosts ahead in the first half before Robert Lewandowski equalised ten minutes before half-time.

The Poland continued his excellent start to the new season by netting his second goal of the match – his fifth goal of the group stages – just after the break.

Corentin Tolisso also found the net to give the visitors a two-goal cushion, but Guilherme dos Santos Torres pulled one back for Olympiacos with just over 10 minutes remaining to ensure a nervous finish for Kovac’s side.

The result ensured that Bayern remain top of Group B with a perfect nine points from their first three games, with their next outing in the competition coming against the same opponents at the start of November.

In the meantime, the German champions return to Bundesliga action on Saturday when they host Union Berlin at Allianz Arena.
