Bayern Munich have reportedly allowed Thiago Alcantara to take some time to make decisions regarding his future.
Having entered the final year of his contract at the Allianz Arena, speculation persists over a potential switch to Liverpool.
According to Bild, the 29-year-old will spend a short period away from club affairs in an attempt to reach a conclusion over his next move.
Although the Spaniard has insisted that he has not requested an exit from Bayern, officials at the European champions have previously suggested otherwise.
Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has added that the next few days of discussions are "key" as Bayern look to recoup £27m.
