Thomas Muller was subject of a number of bids from Manchester United last summer, including one of around £60 million, and perhaps another worth significantly more than that. Bayern, of course, refused to countenance his sale despite the ludicrous amounts of money on offer. However, Muller has said this weekend that the high salaries on offer in the Premier League are very tempting, and that after all, his job is his job. It seems like a move to England is inevitable for him at some point, perhaps to United or equally somewhere else. You can read the full story in the Guardian.
In between all the Bee Ess he has recently spouted, Alex Ferguson has still found time to accurately appraise Arsenal's work. They'll not find a better manager than Arsene Wenger, he thinks, but they've nevertheless not improved in the last few seasons. Entirely correct, and the quotes are in the Telegraph.
Fair play to Ferguson, too, for saying that he didn't sign David Silva because he wasn't sure he did enough defensive work. Right you are, Alex. That's on ESPNFC. He bought Shinji Kagawa, by the way.
And lastly, in the Manchester Evening News, Louis van Gaal gave Marcos Rojo and Ander Herrera the chance to go on holiday, keeping in mind that the squad have had very little time off in the last few weeks. That's nice.
