Thomas Muller: You don't leave Bayern Munich, even when England offers a lot
Thomas Muller has said that his new contract at Bayern Munich shows that "you don't leave FC Bayern, even when England offers a lot."
Muller, who like teammates Javi Martinez and Jerome Boateng signed a new deal shortly before Christmas, was linked with a big-money move to Manchester United last summer.
His Bayern coach Pep Guardiola, who will leave at the end of the season, has said he wants to manage in the Premier League but added that he does not plan to take any Bayern players to his new club.

Speaking to reporters at Bayern's training camp in Qatar, Muller said: "It set a signal that you don't leave FC Bayern even when England offers a lot with all the TV money.
"It was a statement from me and the club that we stand together, feel great together and pursue goals together."
The Bavaria-born Germany international praised his club as "more than just an employer" and said of the quality of life in Munich: "Not everyone can offer that."
