Bayern is in danger of losing its icon and most creative player Thomas Muller


A rare one-man club that symbolizes the organisation almost as much as the crest, Thomas Muller, might be nearing the end of his days in Bavaria. The 30-year-old German is not satisfied with his playing time and as his contract is running out in the summer of 2021 he might make a switch in June of this year.

Muller has spent his whole career at Bayern, making 510 appearances for the Bavarian giants scoring 190 goals and making 180 assists to his teammates. This season, he has made 11 Bundesliga assists, with two goals to his name he has contributed to more than a quarter of Bayern's 46 goals.

Yet, he only started 11 games in the league this year, was subbed out six times, and also came on as a substitute six time for a complete playing time of 962 minutes. Making his record all that more impressive and his dissatisfaction all that reasonable.

Muller recently explained why Bayern's new manager Hansi Flick is better than the former boss Niko Kovac in the most Muller-like fashion.

Muller reiterated that he is focused on the current season.

"I'm only focusing on having a successful season. I will talk to the club and think to myself about what will happen in the summer. Then we'll see in which direction it goes," said the German versatile player.

Bayern's legend explained what is needed to make the agreement with the club.

"With such a thing, all parties have to put their arguments in the pot. Let's see if you can make an agreement there. You just have to compare what all parties want."

The German player is also known for his jovial spirit, as evident by Robert Lewandowski's recent description of him. To see Muller leave the dressing room at Allianz Arena might have more than just on-pitch repercussions as he is the fan and the player favourite.
