Muller offered job for life at Bayern by chairman Rummenigge

Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has offered Thomas Muller a job for life at the record German champions.

Muller has been linked with a move to Manchester United but Rummenigge does not ever expect the Germany international to want to leave the Bavarian club and has therefore offered him a position after he hangs up his boots.

"I get the feeling that Thomas will never leave FC Bayern," Rummenigge told Sport Bild magazine.

"And when Thomas does call it a day, we would also like to keep him as part of the club."

There had been fears that Muller might follow Bastian Schweinsteiger to United for a reported 100 million euro, but Rummenigge said last week that he is not entertaining that idea, adding that the 25-year-old forward is priceless.

Bayern have already signed midfield cover for Schweinsteiger by signing Arturo Vidal from Juventus on Wednesday.

The Chile international joined for 37 million euro ($40m) from the Italian champions with a further three million euro owing based on the player fulfilling certain criteria.
