Manchester United face competition from Inter Milan for the signature of Thomas Muller, according to reports in Germany.
Muller has spent his entire senior career with Bayern Munich, but recent reports suggested he was becoming increasingly frustrated there and would request a move in January.
Bayern coach Niko Kovac says that everything has been cleared up with Muller, but that hasn’t stopped two German publications speculating on his future today.
According to Bild, Manchester United would like to sign Muller in January, having pursued him since the days of Louis van Gaal’s reign as manager.
Short of attacking options after parting ways with Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez over the summer, United are said to be on the lookout for reinforcements – with Muller remaining in their thoughts.
However, Kicker say that Italian giants Inter Milan – who took both Lukaku and Sanchez from United in August – are also keeping tabs on Muller.
Sanchez has been ruled out for months with an injury, so Inter will wait to see if he recovers in time or if they will need to bring in another attacker during the winter transfer window – with Muller being more intensely watched as a result.
A move to Liverpool has also even been suggested for Muller, whose contract runs until 2021.
