Manchester United reportedly had a bid rejected for Bayern Munich forward Thomas Muller. The Red Devils had made a bid of £85m for the German international.
United were searching for an attacker relentlessly at the start of this season. Mourinho spent a whopping £150million to bring the likes of Paul Pogba, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Eric Bailly to strengthen his squad.
Muller has been struggling this term for Munich as he scored only four times this season and hasn’t scored in the last five outings. United have also been linked with Antoine Griezmann but nothing materialised in the summer.
The club’s financial partner Jan-Christian Dreeson confirmed there was a bid for the 27-year-old. “There really was something like that.
“Then came a fax from England. For us, however, a sale of Thomas Müller was never discussed. If a player fits us, we would be stupid to give him a short-term prospect of a record profit and to weaken him.”
