Thomas Müller wanted by MLS, according to reports in Germany
The World Cup winner is said to be wanted by MLS clubs, according to reports in Germany.
It seems like MLS Commissioner Don Garber wasn’t lying back in July when he said that Messi’s arrival was just the beginning of a new era in MLS. Now, several media outlets are reporting that the league are analysing the option of having four designated players per team for next season, instead of three.
This change has one obvious reason behind: the inclusion of top talent from across the world no longer see MLS as a place to retire to but a league to compete in, and as a results various names are being linked with a move to North America. The latest player on the long list of MLS links is Germany and Bayern’s legendary forward, Thomas Müller.
According to Sports Bild in Germany, Müller, a key figure in the German national team that won the World Cup in Brazil 2014, winning the ‘Silver Boot’ for the five goals he managed to score, is on the radar of numerous MLS clubs.
Müller wants to stay at Bayern
Despite the rumours, the German player himself revealed that he would like to stay at Bayern for several more years. Just five days ago, the Germany international confessed his desire to stay at the Bavarian club.
“I definitely want to play one more year beyond 2024. I still enjoy being on the pitch, I hope that it shows” were Müller’s words recently about his career as a footballer in the Bundesliga.
During the current domestic season, Müller has played a mere 329 minutes of football and has only scored a solitary goal. As well as these stats, of the 10 games he has played in the domestic tournament, he has started from the bench in six of them.
The arrival of Harry Kane at Bayern Münich has taken away Müller’s prominence in the team, but Thomas Tuchel still has the World Cup winner firmly in his plans as an impact player at the home of the German champions.
