Muller hints at Premier League move

Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Thomas Muller has sug­gested he could leave Bay­ern Mu­nich in favour of a move to the Premier League if a big-money of­fer comes in.

Bay­ern chair­man Karl­Heinz Rum­menigge re­cently re­vealed that Manch­ester United at­tempted to sign the Ger­many in­ter­na­tional dur­ing the most re­cent trans­fer win­dow, be­fore stress­ing that the Bun­desliga cham­pi­ons have no in­ten­tion of selling the 26-year-old.

How­ever, Muller has re­fused to rule out a move to Eng­land in the fu­ture.

“In the end, we should not for­get that play­ing football is our job,” Muller told Welt am Son­ntag.

“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.”

Muller has a con­tract with Bay­ern un­til June 2019.
