Falk: Milan ‘closely monitoring’ situation of 327-goal Bayern Munich stalwart

By Ben Dixon -

After losing the veteran Zlatan Ibrahimovic at the end of the 2022-23 season, AC Milan are looking to bring a similar figure to the club, who could fill a vital role on and off the field.

Whilst in his final Rossoneri season Zlatan may not have been ever-present on the pitch, his work off it will have been seen as the club’s biggest loss.

The 42-year-old had played in four of the top five European leagues and seen almost everything, both highs and lows. As such, losing a player with his experiences would have been a blow to the locker room. 

Whilst he is due to return to the club in some capacity, the Rossoneri are also monitoring a player who could fit a similar role to the one the Swede held in his playing time. 

As Christian Falk has reported as part of his guest column in CaughtOffside, Milan could move for Thomas Muller, with his future at Bayern Munich in the air.

The report suggests that the 34-year-old wants to extend his stay with the German heavyweights until 2025. However, with his contract set to expire in June 2024, if there is no agreement, the Diavolo will look to tempt him to join. 

From the World Cup in 2014 to the Champions League, Muller has seen and won it all, often playing a pivotal role too. With Stefano Pioli not opposed to a 4-2-3-1 formation this season – he provides extra coverage for the attacking midfielder position, which is an additional benefit.

  1. Absolutely.
    Bring him in. Milan needs a player with a brain and not just ability to run.
    Probably his best position will be the false 9.
    He would bring experience and actual leadership that is lacking currently at Milan since the departures of Kessie and Zlatan.

  2. He is refusing to lower his wage. That’s why contract negotiation is on the air… How we, as a broke club, offer him contract? He doesn’t accept even 4-5 mil offer. Even if so, this player was born specifically for Bayern. There is motivation for him to do anything in Milan I am afraid. Can they give us Harry Kane as Christmas gift ? lol

    1. 😀 that would indeed be a nice christmas gift.
      Considering how badly the management has behaved towards Maldini im pretty sure santa wont be so generous but maybe Krampus will arrive for all of us december 5th 😛

      The funny and sad thing is that before Harry Kane really became famous Berlusconi wanted to bring him to AC Milan and i remember a lot of people complaining about it as they had no clue about his talent,

    2. “How we, as a broke club, offer him contract?”
      Milan a broke club?
      Milan might be a cheap club but nowhere near broke. It used to be broke during the later years of Berlusconi era and Li Yonghong year but right now Milan is financially the best positioned club in serie A.
      Thank you Elliott and Gazidis

    3. Milan ain’t broke. They can pay high wages but have a policy not to do so. Anyways, it doesn’t matter in this case as Thomas Müller would be under the Growth Decree. So he would need less money from Milan to get the salary he wants from Bayern

    4. “There is motivation for him to do anything in Milan I am afraid. ”

      LOL. I’m 10000% sure you’re right. What kind of players would be motivated to play for his new team? I mean… Pulisic doesn’t give a damn about playing in Milan, right? Or Giroud.

  3. Muller with his 21M gross pay at Milan. Yeah, that will be the day. Besids there are tons of more suitable players out there if you want age with exp

  4. Milan already has Pulisic, who is not by nature a winger, he is an attacking midfielder, that purchase has not sense, Milan lacks of a top coach, that’s the main problem now and a killer center forward.

  5. Bring him. Shouldn’t even be a discussion. The man has won it all and seen it all in football and Milan desperately need a leader like him on and off the field. He would also be a true role model in Milan
