Bayern Munich chief executive Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has claimed Thomas Muller is "playing at his highest level again", describing the midfielder as "incomparable" as the club prepare to take on Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League final.

German international Muller came through the Bayern Munich youth academy and has been turning out for the first team since the 2008-09 season, helping the club win nine Bundesliga titles, six DFB-Pokals and the 2012-13 Champions League in that time.

The 30-year-old was also instrumental in the German national team's 2014 World Cup win in Brazil and their third-placed finish four years before in South Africa.

Muller has flourished especially under Hansi Flick this season, signing a new deal in April to keep him at the club until 2023, and he can help them achieve a treble when they meet PSG in Lisbon after Munich won both the Bundesliga and DFB-Pokal in 2019-20.

And Rummenigge, who himself won two European Cups with Bayern as a player, believes Muller is as good as he has even been.

Speaking to Kicker, Rummenigge said: "Thomas Muller has been the biggest winner since Hansi Flick took over - it's the second or third time he has blossomed. Thomas is incomparable, and he has proven that again.

"Thomas is playing at his highest level again, just like in 2010 or 2014 when he performed incredibly well with the national team. He is showing that quality again."

Meanwhile, Bayern Munich are 1.90 to beat PSG, who are 3.40 to win with the draw 4.20 in the Champions League final on Sunday.
