Bayern Munich warn Man United to 'stop e-mailing about Thomas Muller'

Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has urged Manchester United bosses to stop contacting him over the striker.

KARL-HEINZ RUMMENIGGE says Bayern Munich never had any intention to sell Thomas Muller and suggested Manchester United are wasting their time in making enquiries.

Muller was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford in the close-season after another impressive season with Bayern but remained part of Pep Guardiola’s squad.

The Germany international also signed a new deal at the Allianz Arena last year, which will keep him under contract until 2019.

And, speaking after Muller’s brace helped inspire Sunday’s 5-1 win over Borussia Dortmund, Rummenigge told his United counterparts to stop e-mailing him about the forward.

“I am not a banker. We are a football club,” he is quoted by Sport1.

“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.’”
