Thomas Muller spared no time in denying Arsenal links after Bayern Munich’s 6-2 pre-season win over Wayne Rooney’s DC United.

Thomas Muller was quick to distance himself from any rumours linking him with Arsenal
When asked if he would join the Gunners, he replied: ‘No, no, no, no!’
Matthijs de Ligt scored on his debut for the Bavarian giants
Having already lost talismanic forward Robert Lewandowski to Barcelona, it would likely have d to have been a sensational bid for Bayern to be convinced to part with yet another of their veteran forwards.
Debutants Mane and de Ligt ran riot in the US capital as the ten-time Bundesliga champions thrashed Wayne Rooney’s DC United 6-2 in Washington.
Former Liverpool star Mane, who completed his £35million switch to the German champions last month, opened his Bayern account inside five minutes after converting a spot kick.
De Ligt, who completed his £68m move from Juventus on Tuesday, was also on the scoresheet, finding the net less than two minutes after coming off the bench at halftime.
Manager Julian Nagelsmann praised the pair for how well they’ve both settled into the squad so quickly.
‘Both players have made a good start,’ Nagelsmann said post-match.
‘Matthijs scored a brilliant goal with his left foot. I saw his impressive passing with his left foot in training today, and now this brilliant finish as well.’
Also among the goals was Serge Gnabry, who penned a new deal last weekend to stay in Bavaria until 2026 and was also linked with a return to the Gunners having begun his career there.
