    Bayern boss says rejected 'very high' Mueller offer

    Bayern Munich rejected a "very high" offer for versatile attacking midfielder Thomas Mueller this summer, president of the German club Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has said. The 25-year-old Mueller, who worked with Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal during his time in charge of Bundesliga champions Bayern, was heavily linked with a move to the Red Devils throughout the summer.

Washington, Nov. 22 (ANI): Florida socialite Jill Kelley, the woman at the center of the 'David Petraeus scandal', was apparently so eager to make a multi-billion dollar Korean business deal that she was willing to cancel anniversary plans with her husband, Dr. Scott Kelley, according to a report.

Emails between Kelley and Adam Victor, president and CEO of TransGas Development Systems, appear to confirm the New York businessman's claim that Kelley wanted a huge fee for brokering the transaction. Her emails originate from two accounts known to be associated with her and her husband, ABC News reports.

According to the report, Kelley and Victor were introduced at the Republican National Convention in Tampa in August by Kelley's friend, Tampa real estate developer Don Phillip.

Philip recently during an interview suggested that Kelley and Victor should meet because the former could help Victor land a deal for a coal gasification plant in South Korea.

Initially, Kelly told Philip that she was no longer interested in pursuing the deal, but subsequently, according to an email sent shortly after their introduction in Tampa, Kelley was pushing hard to set up another meeting with Victor as soon as possible.

"[M]y husband is in agreement with me canceling our 13th Anniversary dinner plans. Please call me," Kelley allegedly said in an email to a Victor employee.

Victor, who denies propositioning Kelley, also claimed she continued pushing for the deal after their meeting in New York.

However, Victor rejected the proposal as he said that the coal gasification plants under discussion were worth 4 billion dollars, and two percent of it would amount to an 80 million dollar fee, which for him was 'ridiculous'.

"The suggested fee you have asked for is so out of market, I have no way of working out any acceptable deal with you. You should not contact anyone on our behalf," he had told Kelly. (ANI)
