Bayern Munich have reportedly offered striker Thomas Müller a new contract in an attempt to persuade him to stay in Germany and turn down a move to Manchester United.

According to SportBild, the 25-year-old is set to be offered greatly improved terms at the Allianz Arena as the Bundesliga club look to increase the £110,000-a-week package he currently receives.

United boss Louis van Gaal has been linked with a prospective £75m bid for the German international, who lifted the World Cup last summer, but is likely to be disappointed.

Bayern sporting director Matthias Sammer has regularly dismissed the speculation despite the reoccurring interest from English clubs, usually United.

Bastian Schweinsteiger has already made the switch from Munich to Manchester this summer but that is expected to be where the line in drawn in terms of exits at the Allianz.

Last season, Müller managed to score 13 goals in the Bundesliga, with 10 assists, as Munich lifted the league title once more.
