With a year left on contracts, Müller and Thiago — both were the prime candidates for whom Bayern was keen to continue.
Thiago was seen on a non-working day at the club’s training ground and workplace, Sabener Strasse, which led many to believe contractual discussions were the reason for his visit.
According to German media sources, Spain midfielder Thiago Alcantara is the new Bayern Munich star to extend his deal.
Thiago Alcantara has agreed to a new deal at Bayern Munich according to Christian Falk at Bild in Germany. Bayern’s insider posted on his Twitter that it was his “great pleasure” to declare an agreement was reached with the German club aiming to make the announcement later this week.
Thiago has been a key player in Bayern since moving from Barcelona in 2013, despite his horrible problems with injury, and he was also a key figure for the Spanish national team when fit. Hopefully, he switched his fitness problems around the corner and could start playing in his 30s. Thiago had come from FC Barcelona to Munich for a fee of €25 million. For then Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola, Thiago’s last piece of the puzzle has been a great servant to Bayern Munich as he is close to hitting 150 Bundesliga games for the club.
For all football fans who love seeing the silky midfielder on the pitch and want to see him making up for lost time, this offer is fantastic news. It possibly rules out a final major move – but when you played at Bayern and Barcelona, and for Spain, you have already done pretty well.
