Thomas Muller Offered €25m-A-Year By Chinese Super League Club
Thomas Muller could become the latest in a long line of high profile players in China with one club reportedly offering the Bayern Munich forward £25 million-a-year to move to the Far East.
The list of players linked with a move to China is nearly as long as the list of players linked with Manchester United any given summer and Thomas Muller is now on both lists.
Muller, who only scored six Bundesliga goals this season, is the latest player to be linked with the Far East as Kicker, via Bavarian Football, reporting that a club is willing to offer him £25-a-year to move to the Chinese Super League.
No club is named as the interested party but if he were to move for that offer it would mean he would be earning over £2 million a month, £520k-a-week, £74,404-a-day, £3,100 per hour, £51 a minute and 86p per second- you can barely even spend 86p in a second.
The report does say that Muller would turn down that offer as he believes that he is still too young, and too good, to make the move to the Far East.
The Chinese Super League has become a place for players to make big money but it isn't like they've all been old and many have even been younger than Muller's 29.
Bayern youth product Muller has been with the Bundesliga club for 11 years but his importance to the first team has diminished in recent seasons.
He started just 28 games in the league last season scoring only six goals and has netted just 19 goals in the league in the last three seasons.
Niko Kovac is overseeing an evolution at the club this summer with veteran wingers Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery both leaving and he is lowering the average age of the squad.
Mousa Dembele, Moussa Sissoko, Sandro Wagner and Marek Hamsik are amongst the foreign players to have moved to the CSL just this year.
There has already been plenty of transfer rumours regarding the Far East this summer with Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang and Sergio Ramos linked with moves.
On the other hand Yannick Carrasco has been linked with a move back from China, with Arsenal reportedly his destination.
Muller could make a lot of money if he decided to move but clearly still wants to contribute in Europe.
