In an interview with Welt am Sonntag FC Bayern Munich forward Thomas Müller admitted that the money invested in the Premier League makes it very tempting for him to play there, and also pushes the sport further. The 26-year-old, who has played for Bayern since he was 11, didn’t rule out the possibility of moving to the UK.
He said in the interview: ”'In the end, we should not forget that playing football is our job. So people should accept that wages will always play a role in a player's decision-making. Of course, the wages that are being paid in the Premier League are very tempting. It would be hypocrisy to deny that.
You have to look at the complete package to determine whether something is right for you. What's good for you one day will not necessarily still be good for you the day after. 'I know that a lot of German clubs are unhappy with the Premier League clubs' spending, but I think it is something good for all clubs in the end. It can only be a good thing for football when clubs invest so much money.”
Meanwhile, FC Bayern Munich chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said last week that Manchester United have shown interest, but insisted that the club had no intention of letting Thomas Mueller leave Munich.
Rummenigge said: “There is no price, Thomas Müller has four years more on his contract. There is no one, not here or anywhere, who can explain to me why we should sell Thomas Muller.”
Rummenigge is known for being almost as stubborn as Manchester’s Louis van Gaal, who would reportedly like Muller to join Schweinsteiger at Manchester United.
