Bayern Munich president Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has admitted that they rejected a major offer for Thomas Muller over the summer.
The German international striker was a target for Manchester United throughout the close-season market.
“I’m talking about figures which were very high indeed,” he said. “If I were a bank manager then I would have had to accept it.
“But as a football club we allowed ourselves to close the door on it, and this door is remaining closed. I can promise that to everybody.
“But one thing is for certain, in view of the increased television money in England things are not going to get any easier for Bayern in future.”
