Latest transfer news and rumours

In spite of several reported refusals, Manchester United has not given up on their hope of signing Bayern striker, Thomas Mueller. United, who seem to be a bit scarce in the striker department have been speculated to sign a “surprise” signing. Van Gaal has been tight lipped on who the surprise would be.

With this, the media was abuzz with various high profile names; one name which never quite died down was Mueller. Even Mueller’s Bayern colleague, Phillip Lahm, suggested that the move might happen. He was quoted saying as.

“It’s not my decision,” Lahm said. “Things can happen very quickly in football. I certainly can’t provide any guarantee for Thomas Muller [staying].”

The media even reported a probable bid of €100m being submitted by United. However, it also said that this fee was rejected by Bayern as the player is too important for them. The player, however might be interested in the move but it is the club which is blocking it

As per the report, the Bayern executive Karl Heinz Rummenigge, is against the opinion of selling two of their big names to United in single transfer window. This might cause a disconnect with the fans, as per his opinion.

It looked as if the transfer is out of bounds, but with the latest reports, it seems that Van Gaal has asked Ed Woodward to finalize the deal for Mueller as soon as possible. He is even willing to spend the left transfer budget on this deal. This might seem a bit hasty considering the fact that United are still to sign an experienced Center back, a priority area since the start of the window.

However, considering United’s attacking option, he might do with another forward player in order to compliment Memphis Depay and Wayne Rooney. With Robin Van Persie, Radamel Falcao already at their new clubs, it might be important for the manager to have another striking option. Van Gaal, who is an admirer of Mueller, also tried bringing him to the club last season, which did not realize.  However he will be planning on getting this done sooner rather than later, considering the season starting in just over a week’s time. He would not want to have a situation that he had with Falcao in the last season, where his late arrival did not bode well with his performance.
