Having tried to keep their star players for years, it looks like FC Bayern are finally going to fail in that pursuit. With previous success in keeping major names like Robert Lewandowksi at the club, it looks like one signing who will leave this summer is Thiago. The former Barcelona man is believed to be keen on a move to the Premier League, with Liverpool the most commonly linked.
When asked about the future of Thiago, though, FC Bayern coach Hansi Flick was pretty open on his thoughts on the future of one of his star men. Speaking to Sport1 in an interview, Flick said: “I can understand when a player thinks about a move.
“Thiago has played for FC Barcelona in Spain and for FC Bayern München in Germany. If he wants to play in the Premier League now, I totally understand.
“But it would be a pity, because Thiago gives us that certain extra. That’s why I’d like to keep him for the next few years as a coach, but that’s life. It goes on.”
It sounds like Bayern have given up any hope of keeping the player, and it now comes down to Liverpool to make the move. Bayern are believe to want in excess of €30m for the 29-year-old, and it now comes down to the sums of money that Liverpool can get access to, with the clubs coffers seemingly emptied due to the severity of the COVID-19 crisis.
