Ancelotti - Muller still in Bayern plans

Ancelotti - Muller still in Bayern plans

The 19-year-old winger was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United but the Red Devils are set to miss out on the Portuguese worldwide as Sanches is said to have already agreed to move to AC Milan.

James also said his relationship with Bayern boss Carlo Ancelotti played a pivotal role in his decision to join the Bundesliga champions. "When the time comes, I will see what will happen". "Of course, I'd like to play more".

Bayern president Karl Heinz Rummenigge suggested last week that the German champions would consider a bid in the region of €50m (£43m) would be accepted, with the potential of an initial loan move also being acceptable.

United are on "red alert", says The Sun after Portugal midfielder Renato Sanches said he wanted to leave Bayern Munich a year after he arrived in Germany with high hopes and great expectations. I am now with Bayern but when we go back to Munich from Asia, we will sit together and find a solution.

Should United make a late move for the midfielder? Vincenzo Montella has been given a lot of money to spend by the club's new Chinese owners, adding Leonardo Bonucci, Ricardo Rodriguez and Andre Silva among over €215m of new signings during the transfer window.

They have already brought in midfielders Franck Kessie from Atalanta and Lucas Biglia from Lazio, while the other realistic first team options in the centre of the park will be Giacomo Bonaventura and the veteran Riccardo Montolivo.

It's questionable as to how much coaches look into results in pre-season, as ultimately their main focus is on making sure their players are fit and healthy and ready for the campaign ahead.
