Thomas Muller has signed a new contract with Bayern Munich, bringing an end to Louis van Gaal's faint hopes of luring the forward to Manchester United.

Muller, 24, originally broke into the Bayern first team during van Gaal's reign in charge at the Allianz Arena in 2009 and recently admitted that he is still has a "close relationship" with the Netherlands manager.

Suggestions the German international has grown frustrated under Pep Guardiola fuelled speculation of a summer bid from Old Trafford and Muller's recent admission that he was considering his future at the German champions seemingly gave van Gaal and United hope.

However, having held discussions with the club, Muller has opted to extend his stay in Bavaria along with Germany and Bayern captain Philipp Lahm who have penned two year contract extensions until 2019 and 2018 respectively.

"Both Philipp Lahm and Thomas Müller are very important members of the FC Bayern squad. Both have stayed loyal to the club since the start of their careers and will continue to play an important role here in the future. We're delighted both players have committed to Bayern Munich for the long term," Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told the club's official website.

"I now wish Philipp Lahm and Thomas Müller a successful World Cup in Brazil and I'm keeping my fingers crossed for them and the Germany team as they seek to win the trophy."

On his renewal, Muller said: "We held very good talks with the management of the club, which made it clear to me that I'm in the right place here. I have the feeling I'm an important component in the club's plans. FC Bayern Munich has been my club since 2000 and will remain my club in the years to come."
