German tabloid Bild have an interview with Bayern Munich forward Thomas Muller on Wednesday in which the German World Cup winner openly discussed an official approach from Manchester United earlier this summer.

Muller, who scored 26 goals in all competitions last term, was the subject of an official bid from Old Trafford, however the attacking midfielder chose to reject the approach out of hand. 

Muller told Bild:

[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.
