Transfer balls: Muller invites Manchester United to show him the money
The Manchester Evening News reports:
Manchester United transfer news: Muller hints at ‘tempting’ MUFC move
What was his hint? He said:
“In the end, we should not forget that playing football is our job. 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…”
…in Premier League footballers’ wages. Because that’s where the money goes.
In 2014, Muller said:
“[On Manchester United’s multi million euros offer], of course, I was aware that I could theoretically earn more with a transfer. The sums that were standing by foreign clubs in the room were already astronomical. I can only say: For me, a change was never really an issue anyway. FC Bayern is my club.”
Bayern reportedly rejected a £60m bid from Manchester United for Müller last summer.
