How much do you think Manchester United is willing to pay for Thomas Müller now? €100 million? €200 million? We know that Karl-Heinz Rummenigge have told them that Müller is not for sale at any price, and the win over Hoffenheim is another great example of how great he truly is.
After conceding the opening goal, Bayern had the majority of the possession as Hoffenheim tried to press and harry the FCB backline and strike on the counter. For most of the first half, it was a successful gameplan. While Bayern kept getting close, they never really tested Oliver Baumann in the Hoffenheim goal. The final ball was missing.
Douglas Costa remains a positive on the wing of Bayern's attack. He constantly put Hoffenheim's defense on their heels. While his crosses were poor on the day, it was his ability to beat his defender and put a shot on goal that was one of Bayern's best weapons on the day.
It was one of these instances that Müller struck. Costa's shot was too much for Baumann to handle, and he parried the ball back into the middle of his box. Müller found the space behind the defense and was all alone when the ball came to him. With a simple touch of his thigh, he put the ball into the back of the net to pull FC Bayern level.
With the goal, Müller now has three on the season after only two matches. Pep Guardiola has said that the squad will have to be rotated this season to keep everyone at the peak of their game, so it will be interesting to see what this means once Bayern begin to regularly play midweek matches when the Champions League group stage begins.
