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.
