Thomas Muller would have ‘no problem’ leaving Bayern Munich


Thomas Muller admitted he would have ‘no problem’ leaving longtime Bayern Munich if the time was right, and hinted he would like to follow in Thiago Alcantara’s footsteps in his stint in Premier League.

The 31-year-old joined Die Roten as a child and has spent more than 20 years at the club, making over 600 appearances and scoring over 200 goals during that time.

Despite his synonymy with Bayern, Muller admitted in an interview with The Times that he would have “ no problem ” leaving the Bundesliga giants in the future, and compared his situation to that of Thiago, who joined Liverpool this summer.

“I am not attached to this club. I have a special relationship, I loved Bayern before I started playing for them, but when there is a situation where you maybe have to decide to play for another club, it wouldn’t be a shame or a problem at all .

“Maybe like with Thiago (Alcantara, now at Liverpool),” Muller teased.

Thiago spent seven years in the Bundesliga and had just won the Champions League when he decided it was time for a new challenge, asking to be allowed to leave the club this summer. He had dreams of a move to England, and Liverpool obliged, signing the midfielder for around £ 20million.

So, could we see Muller in the Premier League next season? He confessed that he loved the country, although his mastery of certain accents and dialects is not at its peak.

“I like it. But some cultures … speaking and such, special dialect, I don’t understand everything. Newcastle? Ah, I don’t know …”

But a Geordie accent wouldn’t be enough to deter Muller from moving to England, that’s for sure. The attacking midfielder is one of the smartest players in world football, and he is widely regarded as a specialist in his Spatial interpreter position.

Let’s keep an eye out for this one over the summer, okay?
