German football club champions Bayern Munich captain Philipp Lahm has said striker Thomas Muller is priceless for the club amid ongoing speculation linking him with a move to English Premier League side Manchester United. Reports in Germany over the weekend claimed United had tabled an 85 million euro ($97.5 million) bid for the Germany international as they look to secure a marquee signing for the season. Lahm, however, has underlined Muller’s importance to Bayern and does not believe the 25-yearold will move on.
“Thomas is one of those role models who you can’t attach a price tag to. He lives for Bayern, he is a very, very important player for us,” Lahm was quoted as saying by German newspaper Munchner Mekur. “There shouldn’t be a concern about Bayern’s identity. Look at the team: Thomas Muller, Holger Badstuber, David Alaba, me – all from the youth team,” he said.
