Chelsea –

German International Thomas Muller has claimed he turned down a move to Chelsea after helping his country to the World Cup semi-finals in 2010.

The Bayern Munich forward secured the Golden Boot last summer and hit the target twice in the 4-1 demolition of England in the last 16. But Muller rejected the transfer offers that followed as he was not ready to leave his homeland. The 22-year-old has also been linked with a move to Manchester United but has insisted he is not yet ready.

He said, ‘I wasn’t just offered after a little after the World Cup – I refused several offers, including one at Chelsea’.
