Thomas Muller Linked with Sensational Move to The Premier League in January
- Newcastle reportedly want Muller as their headline-stealing signing of the January window
- Muller, a serial winner, has spent his entire career at Bayern Munich, winning nine Bundesliga titles in a row
- The Magpies have already signed Kieran Trippier from Atletico Madrid and Chris Wood from Burnley
Bayern Munich legend Thomas Muller has been linked with a stunning move to the Premier League, with Newcastle among the clubs interested in his signature.
Latest rumours indicate that Newcastle are in pole position to land the serial winner, with Bayern Munich willing to see him leave.
According to SportsBild, Muller’s time at the Allianz Arena is set to come to an end, despite the 32-year old still being a key player under Julian Nagelsmann.
With Newcastle showing interest, Bayern are reportedly willing to let the World Cup winner go as early as before the January transfer window closes.
Bayern boss Nagelsmann believes Muller can still play top-tier football for a couple more years, but the club is willing to listen to offers for the striker-turned midfielder.
Since the takeover from Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund, Newcastle have been linked with a number of big names in world football.
In terms of signings, however, the Tyneside club have steered clear of bringing in extreme superstars to the club.
Their first signing was Kieran Trippier from Atletico Madrid, and Eddie Howe’s side also recently secured the signature of Chris Wood from Burnley.
Reports also have it that they are closing in on a deal for Lyon's Bruno Guimaraes.
If Muller somehow completes a move to Newcastle, he will by far be their biggest acquisition in recent times.
The German has spent practically his entire career at Bayern Munich and has established himself as a club legend with the Bavarians.
After breaking into the first team under Louis Van Gaal, Muller went on to win the last nine Bundesliga titles in a row, as well as the Champions League and World Cup in 2014.
With so much success, Muller might be tempted to take on a new challenge and one last huge paycheck.
