Bayern Munich legend Thomas Muller has sensationally revealed that leaving the club he has played over 600 games for would be no problem.

Currently a one-club player, Muller made his debut for Bayern in 2008/09 and has been a staple of the side ever since, helping them win nine league titles as well as two Champions League titles and six DFB-Pokal titles.

At the time of writing, Bayern is odds on to retain their Bundesliga title as they get set to face second-placed RB Leipzig in what is a potential title decider. They are also into the quarter-finals of the Champions League where they will meet Pep Guardiola and Manchester City.

Speaking to The Times, Muller revealed that like Thiago did last summer, he could end up leaving as well.

“I’m not fixed to this club. I have a special relationship, I love Bayern before I started playing for them.
“But when there is a situation where you have to decide maybe to play for a different club, it would be no shame and no problem at all.

“Maybe like with Thiago (Alcantara at Liverpool )

Thiago’s debut season with Liverpool has been anything but smooth sailing as injury and COVID have more than played their part.

Thiago spoke of his move to Liverpool:

“I had options to return (to Spain), but it was clear to me. Leaving Bayern was to be able to live the experience of the Premier League, a very competitive league.

“When I got the call from the coach (Jurgen Klopp) and the club, it was an easy decision to choose the destination.
“But it was difficult to choose if I really wanted to leave Bayern. In the end, it happened and I am very happy.
“It is a change of country, club, stadium and you have the expectation not only of seeing the fans in the stadium, and it will be beautiful to see Anfield full, but also the experience of learning day by day about this new country.”

Should Muller follow suit it will surely be an odd experience seeing him in another team’s kit, surely he has to retire a Bayern Munich player doesn’t he?
