It has been reported that Bayern Munich sporting director Matthias Sammer is warning Premier League clubs off Thomas Muller.
The German international star is being linked with Manchester United and Chelsea.
Sammer has reiterated the club’s desire to keep their talismanic striker – who is said to have a £75m price-tag on his head.
“Thomas Muller embodies everything which distinguishes FC Bayern Munich,” he said.
“He is an absolute role model, an absolute gem and he’s irreplaceable.”
