Thomas Muller brushes off rumours of retirement
Thomas Muller will become a free agent next summer
Thomas Muller has rejected any retirement rumours after the forward has only one year left on his Bayern Munich contract. Fabrizio Romano has revealed Muller will either extend his deal or leave the club as a free agent.
Thomas Müller’s current deal with Bayern Munich is scheduled to end during this campaign. As a result, Kicker reports that Bayern is keen to meet with the attacking midfield player shortly, coinciding with custodian Manuel Neuer’s (37), probable impending contract extension request.
Müller has now verified reports that the two club icons are amenable to this concept.
Müller has previously been rumoured to be leaving Bayern because of a lack of playing time. Bild claims that this option is now once more available. The 125-time German international hopes to stay at the top of the game.
“I definitely want to play for another year beyond 2024. I’m still enjoying being on the pitch – I hope that’s showing.”

Müller has made fourteen appearances in official Bayern matches this season, mostly as a substitute. He admits that he gets frustrated with his lack of playing time occasionally. “But there’s almost an abundance of attackers, everyone has to swallow something now and then.”
Müller is among Bayern’s highest-paid employees, reportedly earning about twenty million euros a year. Since making his professional debut for Bayern in 2009, the two-time Champions League winner has participated in an incredible 680 official contests, netting 237 goals.
Following their 2014 victory, Germany lost both of their World Cup championships in the group stages. Muller may be about to end his career on his terms following yet more setbacks. Under Joachim Lowe, he was left off the national team from 2019 to 2021.
Muller could his last tournament with Germany next year and could call it a day, while with Bayern he may continue for more years. It will be his decision if he decides to leave plenty of clubs will certainly pounce on his signing.
