Thomas Müller considered Manchester United move in 2015

Thomas Müller has revealed he considered joining Manchester United in 2015 when Louis van Gaal was interested in his former player.

Speaking to Kicker, Müller said: “There was a stage when the subject arose two years ago when I considered it, but then the club immediately backed me and I was told I belong here. I didn’t have to think about it a great deal after Bayern said we are counting on you and that you are an important man for us.”

Speaking about a possible move away from Bayern Munich in the future, Müller stated he was happy at the Bundesliga champions: “At the moment, I don’t think it’s going to happen because I am very happy here. However, I’m not saying that somewhere different in the world definitely wouldn’t be my thing either.

“If life takes you somewhere else then I would make myself at home there as well. I would follow the same principle as here, enjoying as many good things as possible every day.”

Müller was the subject of a €100m bid from Manchester United in 2015.
