Thomas Muller has revealed he has no immediate intention of following Pep Guardiola to the Premier League. The 26-year-old has admitted that, unlike his current coach, he sees his future with Bayern Munich.
The Germany international admitted there is a strong attraction to the Premier League, but said he is loving life in Bavaria. Muller has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United in the past.
"The environment [at Bayern], the infrastructure, the history and the culture in recent years are incentives that not every club, or every city, has to offer," Muller said, according to Sky Sports. "Of course, England offers a lot at the moment, but Bayern does not have to hide."
United are rumoured to have made a number of big-money bids for Muller's services over the summer. But in December, he signed a new contract that will keep him at the Allianz Arena until 2021. Muller hopes the contract extension will end any speculation surrounding his future.
"The renewal was a statement by me and the club that we feel comfortable with each other and have huge ambitions," Muller said. "It is also a small sign that Bayern are not a club you simply leave."
Muller has been in stellar form this campaign, scoring 14 goals in just 17 league games. Ultimately, however, he will judge his season according to the trophies Bayern win, rather than his own goals tally.
"Of course I am not satisfied with my own performances and goals, I make no secret of that," he said. "We want to play a good second half of the season and challenge for titles. Then we will see what's left.
"I want to help the team. I try to be a player who is there for the team, even off the pitch. You always have to find the right mix of being serious and relaxed."
Bayern currently top the Bundesliga and have also reached the last 16 stage of the Champions League, where they face Serie A champions Juventus.
