Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has said the club are not interested in selling Thomas Muller, amid speculation that a trio of Premier League clubs want to sign the Germany international.
According to Sport Bild, Serie A champions Juventus as well as Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool all want to purchase Thomas Muller, who has slipped down the pecking order at Bayern.
The 27-year-old only managed five Bundesliga goals last term and endured a 999-minute Bundesliga goal drought — in contrast to his most prolific season ever of 2015-16 when he notched 32 goals in all competitions
“Both the club and Thomas agree on the assessment of last season — it wasn’t a good one,” Bayern CEO Rummenigge told Sport Bild. “[But] Thomas is still not for sale because he’s a perfect fit for Bayern. This is not a matter of discussion.”
Muller played 800 minutes less under Bayern boss Carlo Ancelotti last term than during Pep Guardiola’s final season in charge.
However, Rummenigge backed the club’s sole remaining Bavarian first-team player to come through his barren spell.
“Thomas knows that he has to deliver a bit more, but this isn’t a problem,” he said.
