Bayern Munich have set their asking price for Thiago Alcantara amid reports Liverpool and Man Utd are interested in his signature.
Reports from Germany last Thursday, this time in Munich-based newspaper Abendzeitung claimed that Thiago ‘sees his future’ at Liverpool with Klopp believing that the Spaniard would provide him with the ‘missing piece of the puzzle’.
Jurgen Klopp was asked about the speculation on Saturday, to which he replied: “I have no idea who will play for me next year, there is nothing to say at the moment.
“Thiago Alcantara is a great player, but also a Bayern Munich player. That’s actually all there is to say. There’s nothing to say!”
Man Utd have also been linked with Spanish newspaper Sport claiming earlier in July that Thiago was ‘about to leave Bayern Munich and sign for Manchester United.’
And now Sport Bild claims that the Bundesliga giants have set their asking price with the report claiming that the Spaniard ‘will only be released when the transfer is 30 million euros’.
Sport Bild adds that ‘further squad planning’ at Bayern depends on the money they receive from sales of players such as Thiago and Corentin Tolisso.
Meanwhile, Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge recently confirmed that they intend to cash in on Thiago, to avoid losing him on a free transfer next summer.
“We had serious negotiations with him and fulfilled all of his wishes. But it looks like he might want to do something new again at the end of his career,” Rummenigge told Bild.
“We don’t want to lose a player for free next year. I say that very clearly.”
