Manchester United failed with an £84m bid for Thomas Muller last summer, according to Bayern Munich‘s financial partner Jan-Christian Dreesen.
“There really was such a thing,” he told Sport Bild. “Then came a fax from England. For us, however, a sale of Thomas Müller was never discussed.
“If a player fits us, we would be stupid to give him a short-term prospect of a record profit and to weaken him.”
It would appear United dodged a bullet with Muller though, with the Germany international struggling for form this season.
The 27-year-old has just a single Bundesliga goal to his name for Bayern – he had 15 at the same stage last term.
