Bayern Munich star Thomas Muller reveals that he rejected a move to Manchester United this summer, despite being offered higher wages.

Bayern Munich star Thomas Muller has revealed that he rejected a big-money offer to join Manchester United.

The German World Cup winner was linked with the former Premier League champions before he put pen to paper on a new contract with the Bundesliga giants this summer.

The 24-year-old told Bild: "I knew that I would have earned more money. The sums from other clubs which circulated had been astronomical. I can just say, a transfer for me was never an option. FC Bayern is my club."

United have been criticised for the lack of transfer activity at Old Trafford this summer, having only signed midfielder Ander Herrera and Luke Shaw in the early stages of the window.

However, Louis van Gaal is poised to bolster his defence after the club agreed a deal with Sporting Lisbon to sign Marcos Rojo, with Nani returning to the Portuguese club on loan.
