"Subconsciously, defending the Golden Boot at the World Cup is on my mind," Muller was quoted as saying by SID.
"I know that this might not be the most realistic objective, though.
"Nobody has ever done it before and there have been some amazing goalscorers at the World Cup over the years.
"But I will give it my all to meet my objective and perhaps I can help the team with a few goals."
Germany will meet Portugal, Ghana and USA in the group stages at the 2014 World Cup.
