Peter Schmeichel teases Manchester United fans with picture of Thomas Muller shirt

by Richard Laverty

Peter Schmeichel has teased the transfer crazy section of Manchester United fans, posting a picture of Thomas Muller’s Bayern Munich shirt, whilst linking Muller to an Old Trafford move.

Muller’s name has popped up regularly in recent weeks as a target for Louis van Gaal, with a striker seemingly a priority after Radamel Falcao’s departure and Robin van Persie’s declining fitness and form.

Van Gaal forged a close friendship with Muller whilst coaching the German club, Muller being one of the players the Dutchman integrated into the first team during his short spell there.

Muller himself has spoke of his special relationship with Van Gaal, leading to further rumours about a potential move to Old Trafford this summer.

If reports of a fall out between Muller and Pep Guardiola are to be believed, it may give United an even better chance of pulling off a move for the prolific German, but any transfer still seems a long way away.

Memphis Depay has already joined the club, but recent rumours surround the likes of Ilkay Gundogan or Bastian Schweinsteiger leaving Germany for England, rather than the irreplaceable German striker.
