Manchester United had an £85million move for Bayern Munich star Thomas Muller rejected by the club, according to reports.

The club’s financial partner Jan-Christian Dreeson told German news outlet Bild, that United made the big-money bid in the summer for the forward.

Jose Mourinho has been strongly linked with signing a new striker since his arrival at Old Trafford, including a possible move for Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann.

Dreeson was asked if the offer for Muller was in the region of £85million, and he confirmed this was correct: “There really was something like that.

“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.”

Muller has somewhat struggled this season for Bayern however, scoring just four times this season for Carlo Ancelotti’s side, and failing to score in his last five appearances.

Mourinho spent in the region of £150million during his first summer at the club, including a world record £89million on Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, plus the purchases of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Eric Bailly.


He doesn't actually say Utd in his quote does he?

Bayern Munich midfielder Xabi Alonso has confirmed he will retire when his contract expires in the summer.

Alongside a picture of him waving goodbye, the 35-year-old Spain international wrote on Twitter: "Lived it. Loved it. Farewell beautiful game."

He won club honours with Liverpool, Real Madrid and Bayern and the World Cup and two European Championships.

Alonso told Bayern's TV channel: "It wasn't an easy decision to make, but I believe it's the right time.

He added: "I always thought it would be better to quit sooner rather than later. I still feel good, but I believe this is the right moment."

Alonso joined Liverpool from Real Sociedad in 2004 and was part of a famous Champions League victory in Istanbul in his first season as the Reds came back from 3-0 down at half-time to beat AC Milan on penalties. He also claimed an FA Cup, a Uefa Super Cup and a Community Shield during his time at Anfield.

He moved to Real Madrid in 2009 and won a second Champions League as well as the Spanish title before a switch to Germany in 2014, where he has helped Bayern win two Bundesliga titles and reach the quarter-finals of this year's Champions League - courtesy of a 10-2 aggregate win over Arsenal on Tuesday.

Alonso played 114 times for Spain and scored 16 goals as the national side won the 2008 and 2012 European Championships, either side of their maiden World Cup triumph in South Africa in 2010. His final appearance for his country came at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.


He's had an amazing career and he's always been one of my favourite players to watch
