Just days after Louis Van Gaal reiterated his desire for a marquee signing, a world class player whose quality can compete among the highest in football, the Dutchman has reportedly asked Manchester United Chairman Ed Woodward to sign German Striker Thomas Muller at any cost. The Dutch Coach who worked with the 24 year old striker when he was in charge of Bayern Munich is clearly a big fan of Thomas Muller and has order Ed Woodward to go over the length for him to be re-united with his former player.
The Bayern Munich striker will definitely not come cheap to Manchester United as Bayern Munich have slapped a 70 million pounds price tag on the 24 year old and it seems unlikely for the German team to reduce their asking price. Manchester United are in the market for a world class striker after losing both Van Persie and Falcao in this summer transfer window. Louis Van Gaal will feel short-handed in his striking options as they look forward to the starting of the new season. With the shortage of few quality strikers available in the market Manchester United looks set to go all out and break the bank for Thomas Muller.
Many would feel spending that much on Thomas Muller will be seen as an act of just throwing money around but the signing of Thomas Muller could prove to have a very massive impact to United in a lot of areas. The 24 year old is a proven goal scorer all over in the world and has been known to scoring important goals for both country and club. Manchester United lacked a goal machine last season and the addition of Thomas Muller to the team with the present creativity in the team will guarantee a lot of goals next season.
Next only will signing Thomas Muller bring his goal scoring prowess to United but also United will generate a lot of revenue through his shirt sales being a marquee signing. The sales of tickets for United could also triple because a lot of fans will definitely want to see a player like Muller play at Old Trafford. If Ed Woodward can pull this deal off he deserves a statue at Old Trafford.
