Rumours of Müller to Man United can finally be put to bed as he signs new Bayern deal

FOR A WHILE, there were relentless rumours about Thomas Müller potentially joining Manchester United.

Louis van Gaal had given him his debut at Bayern Munich and there was a feeling a generous financial package could be enough to persuade the attacker to swap the Bundesliga for England.

But now it seems United have little hope in acquiring the 26-year-old as he’s penned a new deal with the German giants that will keep him at the Allianz Arena until 2021.

Jerome Boateng and Javi Martinez signed similar deals while 34-year-old Xabi Alonso has agreed a one-year extension.

All in all, not a bad Christmas present for Bayern fans.
