Hansi Flick hopes to convince Thiago Alcantara to stay at Bayern Munich. The 29-year-old has recently expressed his desire to chase a new challenge.
Bayern Munich boss Hansi Flick admitted he is hopeful of convincing star midfielder Thiago Alcantara to remain with the club. He has recently expressed his desire to leave, which was confirmed by CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, and has been strongly linked with a summer move to Liverpool.
With his contract set to expire in 2021, it appears the former Barcelona youth product is desperate to add another chapter to his rich career.
“The thing is, I always have hope. I’m actually always very positive about things.” Flick told reporters.
“I also know that when you’re at a certain age and you’ve already played in the Spanish league with Barcelona and in the Bundesliga with Bayern Munich, you feel the need to experience another big league. That is quite normal and that is also human.”
“I’m trying my best to make sure Thiago stays here and that you can convince him to stay. But that’s one thing that time will show. We still have the Champions League ahead of us now and we have a lot of plans, also together with him.”
