Bayern Munich forward Thomas Muller has admitted that he’s been contacted by Manchester United and that it’s an “honour” to be linked with the club.
The German World Cup winner is thought to be a target for Louis van Gaal with the summer transfer window now open, with the Dutchman looking to add a striker to his ranks following the exit of loan flop Radamel Falcao.
Bild journalist Christian Falk has suggested that a package worth around £113m has been put in place to tempt the 25-year-old away from Bavaria, where he’s broken through from the youth set-up and won four Bundesliga titles in an impressive career so far.

Muller himself has revealed that he’s aware of United’s proposal and that he’s happy to see that his performances are being rewarded with such interest:
“When a request comes, automatically you deal with it,” he is quoted by Metro.
“And a request from a big club is an honour and a reward that one’s performance is good.”
However, Muller went on to state that he’s very much content at Bayern and that he’s not looking to make a move:
“But I feel well at Bayern, and my contract runs until 2019. I will not say any more about the speculations.”
