Bayern Munich striker Thomas Muller has insisted that he has no plans to leave the club and follow Pep Guardiola to the Premier League.
The Spanish tactician revealed that he would leaving the Bavarian giants at the end of the season in favour of a new challenge in England, with Carlo Ancelotti set to be appointed his successor at the Bundesliga giants.
However, despite his impending departure, Muller has dismissed the suggestion that he could follow his coach to England as he is confident in Bayern’s ability to remain one of the top clubs in Europe for the foreseeable future.
“The environment [at Bayern], the infrastructure, the history and the culture in recent years are incentives that not every club, or every city, has to offer,” Muller said, as reported by Sky Sports.
“Of course, England offers a lot at the moment, but Bayern does not have to hide.”
The German international has been in high demand in recent months, particularly with Manchester United linked with a move for him last summer, as noted by Sky Sports.
However, the 26-year-old committed his future to Bayern in December by signing a new contract that keeps him at the cub until 2021, and he has insisted that that should be enough proof to show where his loyalties lie and end the speculation surrounding his future.
Muller has continued his stunning goalscoring form this season having scored 14 goals in 17 league games, which ensures that he has already surpassed his tally from last year when he made 32 appearances.
As a result, it appears as though there is little reason as to why he would disrupt his own development, while he will also hope to focus on helping Germany to Euro 2016 glory this summer as opposed to dealing with rumours about his future.
