Thiago Alcantara, midfielder of Bayern Munich, is expected to leave the Bundesliga side in the close season because he wants a new challenge, said Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, CEO of the club.
The 29-year-old, who joined Bayern for € 25 million in 2013 from Barcelona, has played 230 matches and won seven league titles with the German team. Liverpool champions of the Premier League were linked to a bid for the player.
As the Bavarian club wants to cash in on the player instead of allowing him to leave when his contract expires in 2021, Liverpool is the possible destination.
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, president of Bayern, said via Marca We did not have contact with Liverpool. But if he wants to go there, then we will. We are negotiating with him, but at the end of his life, it seems like he wants to try something different. We don’t want to lose him for free. I’m very sure.
