It was thought that a possible reunion with former coach Louis van Gaal might persuade the German international to leave the Bundesliga champions and move to Old Trafford however, Muller claims that a transfer to Manchester was never likely to happen.

“I know there was interest, but Man United were interested in a lot of players this summer,” he said.

“It never really got anywhere because I had just renewed my contract [until 2019], and Bayern were clear that they saw my future here. The decision for me was an easy one.”

Despite van Gaal being a huge admirer of Muller, the Dutchman quickly found that the German star wasn’t interested in leaving the Allianz Arena and he moved onto other targets.

Although Bayern have yet to reach top form in this years Bundesliga, they have taken seven points from their first three games.

Some have pointed out that Pep Guardiola’s men may struggle to play their best football following an arduous World Cup campaign that some of the Spaniard’s contingent endured however, Muller feels that this shouldn’t be an excuse.

“Everyone wants to link everything to the World Cup in the early weeks of the season,” he said. “You play badly: you’ve fallen into a hole because of the World Cup. You play well: it’s the World Cup feelgood factor.

“Physically, it shouldn’t be a problem at all, especially for us younger guys. Maybe in October, November, it’ll become difficult, mentally. But you can’t think that way when you play at Bayern. You mustn’t.

“At Bayern, the journey is always headed for titles. So far, the travel agency haven’t called to say there’ll be complications. No rebooking, just yet.”
