Thomas Muller’s agent has categorically ruled out a move to Barcelona for the German but refused to comment when question about Manchester United, allowing continued speculation linking him to Old Trafford.
Bayern Munich refused to rule out a Muller exit this week and Muller insisted he was ‘certainly not about to move on’ but his agent has allowed speculation to mount after refusing to comment on it when questioned by Bild.
Agents love to play games with clubs and Muller’s representatives may well be doing this in much the same fashion as Ilkay Gundogan’s did before his renewal with Borussia Dortmund this year.
However, Bayern have not had the best of years in terms of keeping their playing squad happy as Muller, Kroos and Gotze have all been rattled by a lack of game time, something which has more than likely contributed to their current proceedings with the club.
Re: Bayern-player Thomas Müller
His agent Kögl in Bild:
Barcelona? – He won't go there.
Man UTD: – No comment.

Muller might not be the precise player we need but he’s extremely versatile. This season, he has played across all the midfield and attack at various times yet is still Bayern’s most prolific goalscorer and assist maker.
Unlike Cavani, buying Muller could bring a lot to United’s squad and thanks to his agent’s coy remarks, speculation linking him with a move is likely to continue.
