The club insist rumours of failed moves for the German pair are untrue, with a United spokesman saying: "It is not true that we made offers for Muller or Reus at any stage."

Bayern Munich striker Thomas Muller - one of the stars of his nation's victorious World Cup campaign with five goals - appeared to hint at an offer from United in an interview with German newspaper Sport Bild.

Asked if he knew of United's interest, Muller said: "Of course - I was aware I could theoretically earn more with a transfer.

"The sums that were standing by from foreign clubs were already astronomical. I can only say that a change was never really an issue anyway."

Meanwhile Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo claimed in Spanish media that his club pulled out of the running for Reus because they could not match a more lucrative offer that United had already had rejected.

@solskjaer99, I agree, I think sports journalists get lucky purely by coincidence because players will always change clubs every transfer window. It's an odds/numbers game and sports journalists play that game knowing that they will get some right just because that's how it works. On the topic of Woodward signing players though, is it really all his fault? He can only spend the money that the Glazers sanction for transfer fees and wages. If they either refuse or are unable to release funds for fees and wages then criticising Woodward isn't taking an objective look at the whole system and whole picture.
