Manchester United are hoping that they can convince Thomas Muller to make the move to Old Trafford by offering him a contract worth a staggering £1m per month, the Metro report.
Having seemingly missed out on Pedro to Chelsea, Louis van Gaal is desperate to make the 25-year-old the man to alleviate the Red Devils’ concerns over lack of goalscoring options (via Metro).
But, the Metro claim that United’s latest bid of £59.8m is set to be rejected by Bayern Munich, forcing the Premier League side to make the audacious offer to Muller himself in an attempt to entice him away from the Alianz Arena.
The forward is reportedly interested in the idea of moving to England (via Metro), and this offer may help him make his mind up.
After missing out on Barcelona winger Pedro, the United hierarchy are under immense pressure to ensure that they manage to secure one marquee name before the end of the window.
While Sadio Mane is also attracting interest (via BBC Sport), and is a very talented player, Muller is on a different level having played at the very top of the game – both domestically and internationally – for all of his career, and may be the only signing that appeases supporters.
