Manchester United are hoping that a staggering offer of €80m will be enough to land Bayern Munich forward Thomas Muller, according to Sport.
The Red Devils have already had two bids turned down for the World Cup winner (via Daily Express), but are hoping that this third offer may be enough to lure the 25-year-old to Old Trafford.
Their chances of signing the striker have been boosted after he reportedly told friends that he would be keen on a move to the Premier League, according to the Express.
And while manager Pep Guardiola is unlikely to stand in his way – following a series of bust-ups with the Germany international – the Express claimed that chief executive Karl-Heinze Rummenigge wanted to keep Muller at all costs.
However, his stance could change should Louis van Gaal give the go-ahead for the incredible offer that United are currently contemplating.
With few attacking options currently, Muller would possibly be the perfect addition to rectify that situation, and thus, a bid should surely be made.
His versatility causes defenders so many headaches during the course of a game, as he drifts deep to collect the ball, or makes such clever runs that either create chances for himself, or create gaps for his teammates to exploit.
