Bayern Munich forward Thomas Müller is not believed to be negotiating with Manchester United, with a January move away from the Allianz Arena thought to be extremely unlikely.

The 30-year-old has started just three Bundesliga games this season, forcing him to admit that he would start considering his future at the club if his situation did not improve.

As a result, a report emerged suggesting United could look to offer Müller a lifeline with a January bid, but Sky Sport Germany have countered those claims and suggested that Müller will not be leaving.

They state that Müller has not spoken to either United or Inter, who are also believed to be keen on the German, so a departure Bayern in the upcoming January transfer window is described as 'extremely unlikely'.

However, Sky do note that there are several sides who have expressed an interest in Müller, so a January transfer is not impossible, but he would be more likely to leave the club at the end of the season.

Müller has made 12 appearances for Niko Kovač's side this season, but he has mainly had to settle for brief cameo appearances.

Alongside his three starts in the Bundesliga, Müller has started another three games in cup competitions, but he has played in a multitude of different positions as he has struggled to hold down a permanent role.

He has spent time as a right-winger, a centre-forward and as a midfielder, but Kovač appears to prefer other players in each of those roles.

With Barcelona loanee Philippe Coutinho shining at the top of Bayern's midfield, Müller has been left to compete with Serge Gnabry, Kingsley Coman and Ivan Perišić out wide, while he is fighting a losing battle to displace the prolific Robert Lewandowski in attack.

Despite the concerns over a lack of game time, Bayern executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge recently insisted that Müller is happy at the club and will not be going anywhere.

There is still time for United to involve themselves in the situation, but it appears as though Müller will be remaining with Bayern for the foreseeable future.
