Reports – Man United table £60m bid for Germany star

first_imgManchester United have lodged a £60m bid for Bayern Munich star Thomas Muller, according to reports in Germany.Muller has been on Louis van Gaal’s radar all summer but the United manager looked set to land Barcelona’s Pedro instead.However German newspaper Bild are reporting that United’s pursuit of Pedro has not prevented them from offering a staggering £60m for the World Cup winner.Reports have suggested that Arsenal enquired about Muller’s availability earlier this summer but were told that he was not for sale.But that has not stopped United from testing Bayern’s resolve to hang on to the German, who is under contract until 2019.Van Gaal is in the market for a new central forward following the departure of Robin van Persie and the uncertainty surrounding the future of Javier Hernandez. Should the Mexican leave, that would leave Wayne Rooney and James Wilson as the only out-and-out strikers.And the former Holland manager reckons Muller, still only 25, could fit the bill and has now reportedly opened the bidding. 1 Bayern Munich Thomas Muller last_img read more
