Will the romance between Bayern Munich and ‘One Club Man’ end?

German media 스포츠토토 ‘Buld’ reported on the 12th (Korean time), “Thomas Müller and Bayern Munich board members talked about the future.” It is known that general manager Hassan Salihamizic and chairman Oliver Kahn conveyed their wishes to Müller to stay.

Müller is a ‘one-club man’ representing the Bundesliga. He has been with Munich from his youth days in 2000 to the present. It’s been a whopping 23 years.

After his professional debut in 2008, his true value was revealed. He may not be flashy, but he has excellent football intelligence. Use your brain to create space to score goals or create chances for your teammates. He scored 234 goals and 255 assists in 663 appearances in Munich alone. He shared the honor of winning the European Football Federation Champions League twice and the Bundesliga 11 times.

▲ Müller is a player who is evaluated as ‘Munich itself’.

▲ Müller (right), who is not getting many opportunities under the management of Thomas Tuchel.

The German national team also shone. In particular, it was strong in big competitions. Participated from the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. He drove in 12 goals in 23 matches. Germany won the 2014 World Cup in Brazil thanks to Müller’s performance.

As such, Müller is an indispensable player in ‘Munich’. However, rumors are circulating that he will leave the team recently. On the 10th, reporter Christian Polk of ‘Built’ reported that Muller was considering a transfer this summer.

The reason is the team’s sluggishness. Munich is particularly struggling this season. He won the Bundesliga every year with his overwhelming performance.

However, they have won 2 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses in their recent 6 matches, including UCL. The flow is unusual. They are currently at the top of the league table, but only one point ahead of second-placed Dortmund. In March, after firing head coach Julian Nagelsmann, Thomas Tuchel was appointed head coach. However, performance is not improving. Müller feels skeptical about this situation.

Running time also decreased. Muller has started four of his last six games off the bench. Opportunities have decreased in the Tuchel coaching system.

When rumors of a transfer circulated, general manager Salihamidzic and chairman Khan quickly stepped forward. According to the media, the two reportedly persuaded Müller to “still depend on him. Please retire in Munich.” If the two send Müller, who is ‘Munich itself’ and a long-time devotee to the team, they will have to face the fierce backlash from the fans head-on.

Meanwhile, ‘Bilt’ added that Muller received offers from two teams in the American Professional League (MLS), but the possibility of leaving Europe was slim.
