Bayern Munich attacker Thomas Muller has “opened the door” to a sensational move to Liverpool.
That is according to former Tottenham and England number one Paul Robinson, speaking exclusively to Football Insider about the 31-year-old’s recent comments in the press.
In an interview with The Times, Muller revealed that he is “not fixed” to Bayern and could decide to play for a “different club” in the future.
He drew comparisons between his own situation and that of his former teammate Thiago Alcantara, who swapped the Allianz Arena for Anfield last summer.
Robinson heaped praise on Muller, who has won the Champions League and World Cup in his career, but claimed he would need to be at his best to succeed in England.
“It (his comments) opens the door on a move to Liverpool or anywhere else in the Premier League,” he told Football Insider.
“Bayern Munich are fantastic and dominate the German league but the majority of players hold aspirations of playing in the Premier League at some point in their career.
“Players know that it is the fastest, strongest, best league in the world. It is the toughest league in the world and every player would want to play in the Premier League at some point.
“Muller has had an unbelievable career and he is a top class player.
“He could not come here for his swan song though, if you do you will get found out very quickly. Muller would need to be at the peak of his powers.”
