Bayern Munich star Thomas Muller has confirmed for the first time that he is tempted by a move to the Premier League, amid continued transfer interest from Manchester United.

Muller was the subject of persistent transfer interest from United last summer, with Bayern chiefs confirming they turned down huge offers from the Old Trafford club for their World Cup winner.

Now the latest comments from Muller look certain to fuel rumours that the forward will be back on United's transfer radar in upcoming transfer windows, after he conceded the financial incentives of a move to England cannot be ignored.

"In the end, we should not forget that playing football is our job," Muller told German newspaper Welt am Sonntag.

"So people should accept that wages will always play a role in a player's decision-making. Of course, the wages that are being paid in the Premier League are very tempting. It would be hypocrisy to deny that.

"You have to look at the complete package to determine whether something is right for you. What's good for you one day will not necessarily still be good for you the day after.

"I know that a lot of German clubs are unhappy with the Premier League clubs' spending, but I think it is something good for all clubs in the end.

"It can only be a good thing for football when clubs invest so much money."

Muller could expect to earn huge wages if he was to seal a move to United or any of the top Premier League clubs and it seems as if that prospect is of serious interest to the 26-year-old forward.
