Manchester United are reportedly eyeing a move for Bayern Munich playmaker Thomas Muller, but any move would prove difficult for the Red Devils.
According to Media Foot, Thomas Muller is on the list of targets for Manchester United this month, and they might attempt to sign the Bayern Munich veteran. Any move could prove difficult for the Red Devils, as the German international remains firmly established in Bavaria, a club he has played for in his entire career.
Thomas Muller and Manchester United have remained connected for years, with the Bayern Munich playmaker linked with a move for a long time. In the recent past, those connections died down in the media. But they could make a stunning comeback this month as the Red Devils plot a move.
Muller has only known one way of playing football: how his current club plays. The Bayern Munich playmaker has spent his entire career in Bavaria and reportedly plans to retire at some stage. He remains a firm starter for the club and Germany, featuring in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
The report claims Muller is not preferred by Julian Nagelsmann, who has only picked him for eight Bundesliga games so far. They have certainly overlooked that the Bayern Munich playmaker got injured before the World Cup, which is why he missed all those games.
He had started all but one game for the club this season in the league in the first half of 2022/23. Muller could make a comeback as soon as the Bundesliga season resumes. For now, one should treat the links with Manchester United as baseless rumours.
The report also discusses Manchester United’s reported interest in Eric Maxim Chuopo-Moting. They suggest the Red Devils may have switched targets from the Cameroonian star to the German playmaker. Manchester United were in the market for a new striker, but Muller needed a different solution.
Moreover, they are closing in on signing Wout Weghorst on loan in the coming days. Hence, the understanding is that Erik ten Hag may move to focus on other targets in the coming days. That is if Manchester United intend on adding more names.
As for Muller, many would have seen him having a similar impact to summer signing Christian Eriksen. The Danish playmaker has proved his worth at Old Trafford, becoming crucial to ten Hag’s midfield with fellow new arrival Casemiro.
Dislodging Muller from Bayern will prove difficult for Manchester United. The Bayern Munich playmaker may be considering a late move in his career. But he intends to finish playing with the Bavarians at some stage. Hence, a transfer may not be possible in this window.
