Bayern Munich chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge says Thomas Muller will not be leaving the club regardless of the amount of money offered to them.

The Bundesliga champions rejected offers from Manchester United for the Germany international this summer and Rummenigge says he has told the Old Trafford club it is not worth their while coming back in the future.

He said: “I told my colleagues at Manchester United: ‘I cannot close down my email account, but you no longer need to send me anything. It is useless.'”

Muller helped himself to two goals as Bayern swept aside Borussia Dortmund at the weekend and the 26-year-old will not be leaving the Allianz Arena at any price, according to Rummenigge.

“He’s under contract for another four years,” said Rummenigge. “He’ll stay – no matter what is offered. There is no price I would even start considering it.”

Pep Guardiola’s team have made a perfect start to the new season, winning all 10 of their games in league and Champions League so far this season, scoring 36 times and conceding just four goals.

Muller has now linked up with his German team-mates for their final Euro 2016 qualifying games against the Republic of Ireland in Dublin and Georgia in Leipzig.

Joachim Low’s world champions top Group D and will secure their place in France next summer with a point against Martin O’Neill’s men.

Muller is the second highest scorer in the qualification stage behind his Bayern Munich colleague Robert Lewandowski of Poland. He took his tally to eight in seven games with a brace against Scotland in the 3-2 win at Hampden Park last month.

Muller is 4.50 to score the opening goal against the Republic of Ireland, a game the Germans are 1.44 to win.
