The Red Devils suffer a huge blow in their chase to get the signature Bayern Munich attacker Thomas Muller as club boss Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has made it clear that the club will never sell their versatile player.
The Spaniards’ current deal with the German giants, who recorded a 5-1 victory over Wolfsburg on Tuesday night, is set to expire at the end of the season. “And a good team needs a good coach”, Rummenigge told.
Writing in his new book, Leading, Ferguson revealed that United’s scouts had been keeping tabs on Muller when he was 10, but the player soon committed his future to Bayern Munich. “He represents the “Mia San Mia” [‘We are we’, the club motto] feeling at Bayern”. “That looks pretty good”.
However, given that he would likely receive numerous offers from Europe’s top clubs should he quit the Allianz Arena in the summer, Bayern may have to present him with some very attractive terms to persuade Guardiola to stay on. The coach feels good.
“We will have a serious conversation with Pep in the upcoming weeks and we will see what comes from that”. I am definitely optimistic that Pep will stay beyond June 30, 2016.
Manuel Pellegrini recently extended his contract at City to summer 2017.
