Clearly visible on the cover of Wednesday’s edition, it states that Manchester United have now bid €85m (just shy of £60m in real money) for the German international.

Having heard all summer long from Bayern Munich hierarchy that Muller will be staying put in Bavaria, Louis van Gaal is reportedly not taking no for an answer.
