Muller cited Thiago Alcantara is transfer to Liverpool as an example the players are not bound to any particular club and they can choose to leave if they want.

“I’m not fixed to this club,” the Bayern forward told The Times. “I have a special relationship, I love Bayern before I started playing for them, but when there is a situation where you have to decide maybe to play for a different club it would be no shame and no problem at all.

“Maybe like with Thiago [Alcantara, now at Liverpool].”
