Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has revealed that Manchester United have not made an offer for German midfielder Thomas Muller.
There has been speculation that Man United are looking to bring Muller to Old Trafford to replace Robin Van Persie, who looks set for Fenerbahce.
However, Rummenigge quashed those rumours, at least for the time being.
After announcing that Bastian Schweinsteiger would be moving to United, Rummenigge assured Bayern fans that the 30-year-old would be the only player they sell to United this summer.

The rumour mill has been going into overdrive over the past week with reports suggesting that United’s executive-vice-chairman Ed Woodward was going after both Schweinsteiger and Muller. However, it looks like United well only have to settle for the former.
Of course, this does not mean that an approach will not be made in the future. Given Rummenigge’s statement, however, it now seems increasing unlikely that United will be able to prize Muller away from the German champions.
