Man Utd transfer news: Louis van Gaal expects Real Madrid target to report back to pre-season training
The 25-year-old, in an interview with Sport Bild on Wednesday, claimed that a ‘big club’ was chasing his signature this summer, and it seems that the Red Devils could be the club at question.
The versatile forward, however, also suggested that he had little desire to leave the Bundesliga giants – noting that his contract isn’t set to expire until 2019.
In a follow up, Sport Bild reporter Christian Falk has revealed that Manchester United have made an offer for the Germany international, and the package tabled – including a five-year contract – is said to be worth a staggering €160m.

Muller made 28 starts in the Bundesliga last season, scoring 13 goals and registered 10 assists, but with a number of attacking options for Pep Guardiola – including Robert Lewandowski and Mario Gotze – a regular position is by no means guaranteed at the Allianz Arena.

However, like Muller, Schweinsteiger has hinted that he has no desire to leave Guardiola’s side and is targeting more trophies in Germany, as reported by the Manchester Evening News.
