Thomas Muller ‘demands to quit Bayern Munich in January transfer window’ after being frozen out – The Sun

THOMAS MULLER has reportedly demanded to quit Bayern Munich.

Sport Bild claims the Germany international could be leaving his boyhood club after an incredible 19 years due to a lack of playing time this season.

Muller has started just five games under Niko Kovac this season.

He also netted just nine times last term, his lowest total since his first senior campaign with Bayern in 08/09.

And versatile Muller, 33, believes his situation will not improve any time soon, with the likes of Tottenham nightmare Serge Gnabry, Robert Lewandowski and Philippe Coutinho all preferred in the starting XI.

It’s reckoned he has now asked Bayern for an exit in the upcoming January transfer window, bringing an end to a relationship which began in 2000.

But Muller’s options remain unclear after coming close to joining Manchester United in 2015.

The Red Devils may not prove to be an option following their struggles under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, though Muller would waltz into the line-up should he join.

It’s said that Man City is not an option for Muller as he does not want to play under former Bayern boss Pep Guardiola again.

The report adds that Liverpool and Arsenal could both be interested after unsuccessfully battling for Muller’s signature in 2017.

 

Bayern could be keen to offload Muller as they continue to pursue Leroy Sane.

The City winger’s agent David Gardner met with a Bayern confidant, Giovanni Branchini, to discuss a move to the Allianz Arena.

Bayern have also been linked with City teammate Gabriel Jesus, who is struggling for minutes at the Etihad.
