Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo claim that Bayern Munich forward Thomas Muller is growing fed up with his lack of game time and shrinking importance in Germany with it still unclear how and where he fits into Carlo Ancelotti’s new system, and he could demand a move to Manchester to join the club who made offers for him in the summer.
The experienced German has won all there is to win in Germany but has been dropped several times this season with only five goals from 31 games so far this season. However, with 14 assists to his name, it is clear that he still has huge quality and at 27-years-old is at his peak.
An alternative could be Everton’s Romelu Lukaku, who the Telegraph say will cost the Red Devils a massive £90 million if they are to bring him to Old Trafford. The Belgian, who has 20 goals on his record this season, has reportedly told the club that he will not renew his contract with only two years left on his existing deal.
It is believed that Jose Mourinho and co. are tracking the situation with an eye on a potential summer move for the strong forward, who could represent a long term replacement for the likes of Wayne Rooney or Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
In other news, the club has been charged with failing to control their players after surrounding referee Michael Oliver in Monday’s FA Cup clash with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, say BBC Sport. After Ander Herrera was shown red for two yellow card offences on Eden Hazard, his team-mates were clearly furious.
The club have until Friday evening to respond to the charge, but will be buoyed by the more positive news that Marcos Rojo will not face action for appearing to stamp on Hazard in the second half after Oliver claimed that he saw the action and addressed it within the game.
