Cape Town - Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardoila revealed that Manchester United were turned down more than once this summer.

The Guardian report that Pep Guardoila has confirmed that three of his players turned down the chance to move to Old Trafford.

Manchester United were interested in moves for Thomas Muller, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Arjen Robben but according to the Bayern Munich coach, none of the three were interested in moving to England.

Toni Kroos, also heavily linked with a switch to join van Gaal's United, opted for a move to Real Madrid instead.

Guardoila suggested that no player in his squad were keen on moving to Manchester United.

“They didn’t have enough money. I saw they spent a lot of money,” said the former Barcelona manager.

“It’s good for my friend Louis."

"It’s part of the game."

"All of the clubs in the world want the players of another club. It depends on the player. If the player wants to play he will play. If he wants to stay he will stay. Manchester wants these kinds of players.”

Bayern Munich face Manchester City in Wednesday's Champions League encounter at the Allianz Arena. The match kicks off at 20:45.
