Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has told Ed Woodward to stop emailing him offers for Thomas Muller – because the Bayern Munich chief executive doesn’t know how to switch his account off.
The former Bayern striker has admitted that Manchester United have shown a consistent interest in signing the German international hitman.
Louis van Gaal gave Muller his shot at the Bundesliga giants during his time as manager of the club.
And he must be keen to link up with Muller again – as proven by Rummenigge’s revelation that executive vice-chairman Woodward won’t stop emailing offers from United to sign the striker.
According to BILD chief football writer Christian Falk, Rummenigge said:

You’ve got to love the persistence of Woodward and United, but with a reported price tag of €100million on Muller’s head it looks unlikely that he’ll be going anywhere.
Muller also has eight goals in 10 games for Bayern this term and Pep Guardiola will obviously be determined to hold on to one of his most valuable players.
