Van Gaal wants Man Utd to focus on Bayern Munich attacker Muller

Bayern Munich attacker Thomas Muller is a target for Louis van Gaal at Manchester United.

Bayern Munich attacker Thomas Muller is a target for Louis van Gaal at Manchester United.

The Daily Mail says informed sources in Germany have revealed that Muller is the name at the top of Val Gaal’s wanted list and that he is the one manager the Germany striker would leave his home club for.

Muller is unhappy with his role on the fringes of Bayern’s starting line-up under Pep Guardiola and has become increasingly frustrated at being left on the bench for key games, such as the Bundesliga showdown with their main rivals Dortmund and Champions’ League tie against United.

Bavarian-born, he saw himself spending his entire career at the Allianz Arena but has been forced to contemplate the unthinkable of seeking a fresh start. According to sources close to him, Van Gaal’s imminent appointment as United boss has turned his sights towards Old Trafford.
