Bayern Munich turned down the highest transfer offer in the history of world football this summer. Manchester United offered a staggering €120 million for the Bayern man, but the Bavarians turned down the offer according to Kicker quoting a "reliable source".

The fee would've been €20 million more than the €100 million that Real Madrid paid Tottenham two years ago for Gareth Bale. In the process, he would have become the most expensive German player in history, more than doubling what Arsenal paid for Mesut Özil two seasons ago.

Kicker's report goes on to state that their offer was a five year contract through 2020 at the "astronomical" net rate of €12.5 million a season.

Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge made it very clear where FCB stood on the issue. "Louis van Gaal is very stubborn, but there is no price for Thomas Müller."

The start of this season has proven just how valuable Müller is to Bayern with six goals in their first four Bundesliga matches. This continues to prove that Bayern only sell when they want to sell. Now, Manchester United, please stop making offers for players that have "no price".
