Berlin - Bayern Munich's Thomas Muller has laughed off reports Manchester United want to sign him for up to £70 million with the Germany star describing the exorbitant sum as 'crazy'.

German daily Bild has quoted the figure, but Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has said the 25-year-old forward is not for sale and the Germany international laughed off the figure.

"It's basically crazy the numbers which are currently kicking around in football - that's just business," Muller told German broadcaster Sport1 with United having already signed Germany captain Bastian Schweinsteiger in July.

"No one is worth 100 million euros, it's just a trade figure, so I am quite relaxed about the whole thing."

However, Muller says an encounter with a fan on Monday after a testimonial match against Dynamo Dresden gave him food for thought.

"In Dresden, a fan addressed me with a megaphone: "Hey 100 million man, what is your playing shirt worth?' That made me smile," added Muller, after Bayern's 3-1 win over the third division side.

Bayern opened the new German league season last Friday with a 5-0 drubbing of Hamburg in Munich.
