Karl-Heinze Rummenigge reveals still no offers for Thiago Alcántara. Neither Liverpool nor any other club has been in contact.
Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinze Rummenigge says Thiago Alcántara wants a new challenge away from Bavaria, but the club have not yet received any offers for the midfielder.
The Spain international could leave the Allianz Arena as he has less than a year on his contract and has not agreed to an extension.
Rummenigge says Thiago told sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic that he is seeking a change as he enters what will likely be the final peak years of his career.
Liverpool have been most heavily linked with the 29-year-old, but Rummenigge says Bayern have not had any approaches.
“Hasan had talks with Thiago,” Rummenigge said on Thursday at the presentation of new signing Leroy Sané. “Curiously, they were always very positive. But he told Hasan some time ago that he wants to do something new to finish his career.
“So far, no club has contacted us. We don’t know if he’s settled things with a new club. The fact is we want the play the Champions League [in August] with Thiago and David Alaba.”
