Bayern Munich have told Manchester United they will never let Thomas Muller move to Old Trafford.
The €76.8m-rated German striker was linked with a move to United in 2015 to be reunited with former Bayern boss Louis van Gaal.
The Budesliga side rejected the approach. And now a member of their board has told Ed Woodward and Jose Mourinho, who has also been linked with Bayern defender David Alaba, that there is no point returning with an improved offer.
Edmund Stoiber told Bild: “No one on the Supervisory Board would vote to sell. It should not happen that Thomas Muller plays at Manchester United.
“Muller is more than just an excellent footballer. A player like him is part of our DNA. He plays an important role at the club. Muller not only creates emotions with his goals, he talks to the fans hearts.
“When Bastian Schweinsteiger went to Manchester United, the fans were not happy
“He’s 32 years old and wanted to experience something new. The members and fans, however, would never forgive us if we sell Thomas Muller. No matter how much money.”
