Manchester United KEEN On Thomas Muller, LVG Confident Of Getting His Man

Manchester United’s manager, Louis van Gaal is reportedly observing with keen interest the ongoing rift involving Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola and German international Thomas Muller.

According to the Daily Mail, the 25-year old German international and Bayern striker, was said to have reacted angrily to criticism during training by responding: “Fine! So I may as well just stop now and go back inside!”

Bayern, have however, maintained that their prized jewel is not for sale, and would not entertain any offer. However, the paper believes that the strained relationship between manager and player could be the encouragement the Red Devils need to test the resolve of the German side with a move for the German international. Guardiola is desperate to win the Champions League with Bayern, and would stop at nothing to ensure he builds a team around players that have respect for his coaching style.

The former Barcelona manager is known to be a stickler for his coaching style, and may not tolerate players’ unrest despite not being able to conquer Europe in the last two seasons since joining the current Bundesliga champions.

Muller’s problem with Guardiola dates back to last season after the former was substituted by the former Barcelona manager in an important international club match. The relationship between both player and manager gas failed to improve since then.

According to talkSPORT, Manchester United are believed to be preparing a bid for the German international this summer. Quoting Sport1, a German outlet, talkSPORT reports that Ed Woodward has already held a first round of talks with Bayern chief Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and the former EPL champions are prepared to pay cough up €81 million for the player.
