The FC Bayern forward is loving life right now. Despite having to go to extra time to get to the quarter-finals of the World Cup, Müller and his German teammates are their mainly due to his goals. The false number 9 has 4 goals to his name in Brazil and has created a further two. Only James Rodriguez of Columbia has scored more. It means Müller now has 9 World Cup goals in his career, and is expected to surpass the record of 15 World Cup goals scored overall, held by Ronaldo and Müller’s international teammate Miroslav Klose.
And he’s only 24-years-old. An already experienced striker who is yet to reach his late twenties, Müller is the perfect man for Manchester United. He can play out on the right, centre of midfield and as a striker, making him extremely versatile. We know van Gaal is a fan of him, because he gave the forward his first start for Bayern back in 2009.
