Alcantara has entered the final year of his contract the club and the club has said the Spaniard is not interested in a new contract as he wants a new adventure. According to reports, he wants to play under Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp, who is also interested in him.
But the midfielder, who is an important player at the club surprised the European champions and many followers when he denied ever having the plan to leave the club. This has made many to ask why he has decided not to extend his stay.
“I never said that I would leave Bavaria,” Thiago suddenly said about his future at a press conference when asked.
Is Thiago Alcantara forcing Bayern Munich to lower asking price?
Meanwhile, former Bundesliga striker Jan Aage Fjortoft is of the view that Alcantara’s recent comments is a ploy to make Bayern Munich bring his price down.
Liverpool is keen on the creative midfielder, but have been unwilling to meet Bayern Munich’s valuation.
“I think Thiago’s ‘I have not said I will leave Bayern’ [comment] is a message to Bayern to get the fee down.
“At least two English clubs want him. But they find the package too expensive.
“Thiago wants Bayern to ‘sort this out,” Fjortoft wrote on Twitter.
Bayern Munich will lose Alcantara for free next summer if they fail to sell him this summer, with Barcelona and Manchester United also monitoring the situation.
