The 26-year-old Bayern Munich Forward, Thomas Muller, is tempted by the Premier League offers. He admitted that the “wages are tempting” and it would be “hypocrisy” not to admit the bigger wages lure, notes the Guardian.
“In the end, we should not forget that playing football is our job,” ESPN FC quoted Muller as saying.
“People should accept that wages will always play a role in a player’s decision-making. Of course, the wages that are being paid in the Premier League are very tempting. It would be hypocrisy to deny that.”
Earlier, the Bayern Munich star forward had rejected £60 million bid from Manchester United during the summer as the German club’s chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge stated that “he is a player that we cannot put a price on”.
After Bastian Schweinsteiger made his move to playing for the Reds, Louis Van Gaal had long been waiting for an opportunity to rope in the ace forward.
Now that the transfer window is closed, Muller still insisted “to show him the money” and apparently stated that “Anyone who says cash does not matter is a liar.” The German chief still believes that it is not all about money and that the striker holds a special place at the club.
The german forward also added, “You have to look at the complete package to determine whether something is right for you. What’s good for you one day will not necessarily still be good for you the day after. I know that a lot of German clubs are unhappy with the Premier League clubs’ spending, but I think it is something good for all clubs in the end. It can only be a good thing for football when clubs invest so much money.”
Muller has made 315 appearances for his team in which he scored 131 goals.
