Redknapp says Muller would be fantastic for United

As the transfer deadline day was over last season, everybody was pretty sure that Manchester United had bought the player to guarantee them with twenty plus goals every season. 

Radamel Falcao's season long loan spell at Old Trafford has ended unsuccessfully, leaving the Red Devils to keep searching for the striker that will be helping Wayne Rooney upfront next season. 

Meanwhile, as rumors and reports keep linking Robin van Persie with a move away of the club, manager Louis van Gaal is keen to sign a striker with Thomas Muller being one of the hottest names on his list.

Redknapp believes Muller is perfect for United

Former Tottenham Hotspur manager, Harry Redknapp, believes that the German international is the right man for United. According to the Daily Star, Redknapp said that “Thomas Muller would be fantastic signing for any club" and with van Gaal interested "it’s not hard to see why Manchester United would want him."

Yet Redknapp asked why he "would he want to go" and why Bayern would "be prepared to let him go?”

Muller played two seasons under Louis van Gaal at Bayern Munich and it is no surprise that the Dutch manager would love to re-unite with the German international at Old Trafford next season. 

Rumors are linking Muller with a move to Manchester United this summer, and according to the Express, a £50 million bid was made by United only to be rejected by the German star.

"When you get an offer you consider it automatically," Muller said. 

He continued that a "request by a big club is an honour and appreciation that your output was good" but despite this interest from Manchester United, he feels "fine at Bayern" and his "contract runs until 2019. There is nothing more to say about this speculation."

Muller lifted the 2014 World Cup in Brazil last year with Germany and won the Bundesliga with Bayern Munich in the season following it, scoring 13 times.

World Cup winner scored more than any United player

Wayne Rooney scored one less than Muller while van Persie scored just ten and Falcao and James Wilson scored a combined total of 5.

The German registered 10 assists, which again is more than Rooney, van Persie, Falcao and Wilson.

Meanwhile, he had a shot accuracy of 61%, greater than United's four forwards by at least 5% for each player.

The transfer market was recently opened and there is still a long time until the deadline day. If a deal brings Muller to Old Trafford, his previous work with Louis van Gaal will only benefit him and the team, possibly solving Manchester United's problem with a lack of goals.
