It is now being suggested that though all of Ed Woodward’s approaches for World Cup winner Thomas Muller were rebuffed this summer, he has now dropped a huge hint that he may be interested in a move to Manchester United. His current club Bayern Munich had made it clear that there are no chances that they would sell the forward, nor did he have any interest in leaving the Allianz Arena as well.
However, questions have been raised after the 26-year-old admitted that the money offered by Premier League sides is “very tempting”.
Speaking to Welt am Sonntag, he said, “In the end, we should not forget that playing football is our job.”
“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.”
