Talks over a new contract for the German International have slowed down between Bayern and the midfielder, subsequently alerting United and Chelsea.

The 30-year-old has been at Bayern Munich since 2002, and has accumulated over 325 appearances for the German giants, and it’d certainly be a significant change in his life if he were to move to the Premier League.

And, that move is now seeming more and more likely as Bayern boss Guardiola looks to find a suitable replacement.
