Thomas Muller admits he could follow Thiago in leaving Allianz Arena

'The Raumdeuter' has admitted that it would be “no problem” for him to leave Bayern Munich before he retires.

The 31-year-old is a club legend in Bavaria, scoring 212 goals in 571 appearances, winning nine Bundesliga titles in the process, along with two Champions Leagues in 2013 and 2020.

He has regularly been linked with a move away from the Allianz Arena, with Manchester United regularly talked about as a possible destination for him, but a transfer has never materialised.

His suitors would not be as numerous now as they were earlier in his career, with the peak of his goal-scoring powers coming in 2015-16 when he netted 32 times and he has not really come close to that since.

Bayern Munich are also on course to win the Bundesliga this season. They are four points clear of their nearest rivals RB Leipzig. They will also face Manchester City in the last eight of the Champions League.

Muller recently told The Times that he may end up leaving just like Thiago did last summer:

“I’m not fixed to this club. I have a special relationship, I love Bayern before I started playing for them.

“But when there is a situation where you have to decide maybe to play for a different club, it would be no shame and no problem at all.

“Maybe like with Thiago (Alcantara at Liverpool ).”

Thiago turned down LaLiga return for “easy decision” of joining Liverpool

Thiago’s first season in England has been hampered with injury and Covid. But he recently insisted that it was an “easy decision” for him to join Liverpool:

“I had options to return (to Spain), but it was clear to me. Leaving Bayern was to be able to live the experience of the Premier League, a very competitive league.

“When I got the call from the coach (Jurgen Klopp) and the club, it was an easy decision to choose the destination.

“But it was difficult to choose if I really wanted to leave Bayern. In the end, it happened and I am very happy.

“It is a change of country, club, stadium and you have the expectation not only of seeing the fans in the stadium, and it will be beautiful to see Anfield full, but also the experience of learning day by day about this new country.”
