Fresh reports have claimed Manchester United are readying a £25million swoop for Thomas Muller.
Louis van Gaal is in daily contact with assistant Ryan Giggs and has given the go-ahead for a move for the German international.
A German magazine interview published this weekend has confirmed United’s belief that they can prise attacking midfielder Thomas Muller out of Bayern Munich this summer.
As quoted on the Daily Mirror website, Muller said: “I have now come to the point where I insist to know that I am part of the starting 11 at Bayern Munich.
“I have also demanded to know if the club really want to go forward with me in the next few seasons.
“I am no longer the type who says, ‘OK then, today I will play in this role, next match in that role. Just move me about and I will keep my mouth shut’. No, those days are gone.”
