Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is wiling to bid for Bayern Munich attacker Thomas Muller. The Daily Star says Muller flourished under van Gaal during the Dutchman's reign at Bayern and the new United chief is widely regarded as the man who transformed the Bavarian star.

Reports in Germany claim van Gaal is keen to bring his former player to Old Trafford and that he is willing to offer the German giants to £25m secure his services.

Although Muller is keen to leave the club in order to play first team football and it will be difficult for van Gaal to lure him to Old Trafford as the Red Devils won't be playing in the Champions League next season which could be a major stumbling block for any potential deal.
