    Bayern Munich chief confirms Liverpool target Thiago Alcantara wants to leave

    Thiago Alcantara wants to “try something new” and will be permitted to leave Bayern Munich if his appraisal is met, the club’s president Karl-Heinz Rummenigge exposes.

    Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has validated that Liverpool-linked midfielder Thiago Alcantara wants to leave the club.

    The 29- year-old is due to run out contract at the Allianz Arena next summer and been highly promoted as a target for Premier League champions Liverpool.

    Bayern are rumoured to be claiming a quote of around EUR40 m (₤363 m) for the Spain international and, in spite of the player’s desire to leave, Rummenigge firmly insists that the Bavarian giants’ hand will not be required.

    ” The talks Hasan [Salihamidzic] had with him have actually constantly been very efficient. And at some time it in fact appeared that [a new contract] was done,” he informed informed Sky Sports Germany.

    “But then Thiago told Hasan some time ago that he would like to try something new at the end of his career. We have to accept that.”

    “We have a contract with Thiago that is still valid for one year and if he reaches an agreement with any club then that club should pay a transfer fee of a certain amount.”

    David Alaba is also thought to have actually requested for a move away this summer, with Barcelona, Chelsea and Manchester City all keeping an eye on the situation.
