‘I totally understand if he wants to play in the Premier League,’ says Bayern Boss on Thiago Alcantara

Thiago Alcantara admits that he may stay at Germany despite links to Premier League

Thiago Alcantara admits that he may stay at Germany.

Thiago has stated that he may actually remain at Bayern Munich despite transfer speculations this summer.

The Spanish midfielder has been subject of transfer speculation to the Premier League, with Liverpool leading the race to sign the gifted midfielder.

Speaking after Spain’s 1-1 draw with Germany in which he played the full 90 minutes, the 29-year-old told ZDF: ‘I only think about the game against Ukraine. Afterwards, we will see.

‘Bayern is my home and I am happy to be there.’

Hansi Flick previously expressed his desire to keep hold of Thiago, who proved his worth again with brilliant performances in the Champions League when football resumed.

And no doubt Bayern fans will take heart from the midfielder appearing to open the door to a prolonged stay.

His contract at the club expires at the end of the upcoming season and they are asking for a transfer fee of £27million from prospective buyers.

Liverpool are still front-runners for his signature but are only likely to make a move if one of the current midfielders departs.

Georginio Wijnaldum is of interest to Barcelona and could be replaced by Thiago but Jurgen Klopp is otherwise likely to be inactive in the market.
