Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has stuck the boot into Manchester United over their failed attempt to lure star forward Thomas Muller to Old Trafford during the summer transfer window, according to German publication Sport1.
United were told that Muller would not be put up for sale at any price, but their blind determination to land the World Cup winner saw them come back numerous times.
He made a mockery of United’s attempts in recent transfer windows to buy their way back to the top of English and European football.
“I am not a banker. We are a football club. That is why we never even considered selling Thomas Muller. I told my colleagues at Manchester United: ‘I cannot close down my email account, but you no longer need to send me anything. It is useless,’” he said.
“He’s under contract for another four years. He’ll stay – no matter what is offered. There is no price I would even start considering it.”
