Bayern boss rejected 'very high' Mueller offer

05 September 2015, 16:20

Munich - Bayern Munich rejected a "very high" offer for versatile attacking midfielder Thomas Mueller this summer, president of the German club Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has said.

The 25-year-old Mueller, who worked with Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal during his time in charge of Bundesliga champions Bayern, was heavily linked with a move to the Red Devils throughout the summer.

United's last offer for the 2014 World Cup Golden Boot winner was thought to be in excess of 70 million pounds ($106.70 million), according to British media reports.

"I'm talking about figures which were very high indeed. If I were a bank manager then I would have had to accept it," Rummenigge was quoted as saying by the Manchester Evening News.

"But as a football club we allowed ourselves to close the door on it, and this door is remaining closed. I can promise that to everybody.

"But one thing is for certain, in view of the increased television money in England things are not going to get any easier for Bayern in future," he added.

Mueller has started the campaign in outstanding form, scoring five goals from the opening three league matches.
