United warned off Muller transfer


Man Utd have been warned off Thomas Muller, Everton want Alexander Buttner and Emmanuel Adebayor wants to join West Ham, say Friday's papers.
BAYERN HAVE 'NO REASON' TO SELL MULLER
Man United have been warned off making a fresh approach for Thomas Muller, according to the Daily Mirror.
United have already signed his former Bayern team-mate Bastian Schweinsteiger this summer and reportedly want to sign Muller as they seek more options to play up front.
Bayern chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said: "Muller is not for sale. Our English colleagues seem to be unable to spend all of their money.Everyone knows our old friend, Louis van Gaal. He is very stubborn in those things ... We are completely resistan."
United have just Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez and James Wilson as central striking options and want to add Muller to their options, with the German able to fulfil a variety of positions.
But Rummenigge added: "Maybe he thinks that there is a price where Bayern will start to ruminate, but there is no price at all. Thomas Muller has four years more on his contract.
"There is no one, not here or anywhere, who can explain to me why we should sell Thomas Muller."
EVERTON CHASE BUTTNER
Everton are considering a move for former Man United full-back Alexander Buttner after losing Leighton Baines for around 12 weeks with an ankle injury.
The Daily Mail reports Roberto Martinez is considering an approach for Buttner, who now plays in Russia for Dinamo Moscow.
Youngster Brendan Galloway filled in for Baines for last weekend's Premier League opener against Watford, while Bryan Oviedo is fit after injury.
But Luke Garbutt has been sent on loan to Fulham which has left Martinez considering diving into the loan market.
Buttner joined United from Vitesse Arnhem in 2012 but made only 13 Premier League appearances in two seasons before leaving last year.
ADEBAYOR TO SNUB VILLA FOR HAMMERS
Emmanuel Adebayor stalled on his Aston Villa transfer because he is still holding out for a switch to West Ham, claims the Daily Mirror.
The Irons are in turn hopeful that a loan deal can be resurrected this month - despite the poor relationship between the two clubs and the bitter fall-out from the striker's aborted Deadline Day move back in January.
Although West Ham are in the hunt for Manchester United striker Javier Hernandez they are still pursuing several other options as the Reds have so far been insistent that Hernandez will not be sold.
Mauricio Pochettino has reiterated that Adebayor, in the final year of his contract, has no future at Tottenham.
But Adebayor does want to remain in the capital and is hoping Daniel Levy would rather stomach a move for him to Upton Park than continue to paying him for another 11 months.
He had been expected to join Villa on loan last month after agreeing terms with Midlands club.
He had travelled to Villa's Bodymoor Heath training ground and held talks with boss Tim Sherwood, under whom he worked at Spurs.
But while there were no problems with money with Villa able to meet Adebayor's £100,000-a-week wage demands, the club moved on to other targets after he kept them waiting.
Adebayor's move to West Ham was blocked by Levy eight months ago because, while the Spurs chairman was prepared to part-fund the player's £100,000-a-week wages for other clubs, he did not want to do so for the Irons.
Furious Hammers co-chairman David Gold, who had urged supporters to wait up for the beat-the-deadline deal at the time, subsequently took to Twitter to deliver an icy blast at Levy.
He Tweeted at the time: "No matter how hard you try there are people out there that you just can't do business with."
