Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has dismissed rumours of Thomas Muller leaving the club as he is linked to Arsenal.

  • Thomas Muller was linked with Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester United by SportBild
  • Rummenigge has rubbished those reports, saying Muller is not for sale
  • Muller had a below par season last season

The summer window can brew up some of the weirdest and most unrealistic rumours imaginable, and SportBild offered their own contribution with their story linking Thomas Muller to Arsenal.

Muller has been a key player for Bayern over the years and although he had a below par season last season, that’s hardly cause to sell the player.

Inevitably, Bayern’s CEO, Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, has played down the rumours.

“Thomas is not for sale because he’s a perfect fit at Bayern. This is not for discussion,” he said.

“Thomas and us were in agreement that last season wasn’t a good one. But that’s not a problem. Thomas knows he has to bring more.”

Muller struggled under Carlo Ancelotti last season, only scoring 9 goals in all competitions. The previous year he scored 32.

He did, however, provide a good number of assists and still possesses a lot of quality.

Bayern aren’t so ruthless as to sell one of their own after one inadequate season.
