Thiago Alcantara future

Thiago Alcantara is expected to leave Bayern Munich this summer, despite helping the club to win the treble in 2019-20.

Members of the Bayern hierarchy have publicly confirmed that Thiago is keen for a new challenge and has rejected the chance to sign a new contract with less than a year remaining on his current deal.

Premier League champions Liverpool are thought to be leading the race for the Spain international's signature, while the likes of Barcelona and Manchester United have also been credited with an interest.

However, Bayern's reported asking price of almost £30m is proving to be a sticking point in negotiations, with clubs reluctant to stump up such a fee for a 29-year-old in the last year of his contract.
