Bayern Munich forward Thomas Mueller wants to hold a frank discussion with club management over his future.
"I am not the type of guy that says 'alright, I have played a good part and will keep my mouth shut and everyone else is able to do with me whatever he wants,'" Mueller said, per Stern (h/t Jamie Jackson at the Guardian).
He continued: "It's no secret that Louis van Gaal and I have a relationship that goes a little beyond the normal relationship between coaches and players."
Translation: Mueller is not content with being shifted all over the field under Pep Guardiola and would be open to moving to Manchester United to play under Van Gaal.
Mueller has played on the right, started centrally, appeared on the left and up front.
Perhaps he wants to play in one position, where he can then have a world-class season, rather than an elite season while constantly changing positions.
