Thomas Muller has been a top transfer target of Louis van Gaal since he was named as Manchester United boss.
Van Gaal has been searching for a world class talent who can bring the old glory days back to Old Trafford and Muller was on top of the transfer list.
The 24-year-old forward has admitted that a move to United was way better than his current club in terms of money but he believes that the decision of staying at Allianz Arena was a better one for his future.
Muller who started his professional career from Bayern Munich in 2008 told Bild that he was aware of United’s plan, the offer was astronomical but staying in Germany was a better option for him.
He told Bild: “The amount that Manchester United were offering me was astronomical. But Bayern are my club, a change was not an issue for me.”
The German forward who enjoyed his World Cup victory last month has scored 100 goals in 258 games for his club Bayern Munich. He has won every trophy with them including three Bundesliga titles, a Champions League trophy and many other local Cups.
