Thiago Alcantara has told Bayern he wants to leave the club

Thiago Alcantara has informed Bayern Munich of his intention to leave the club this summer, President Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has confirmed.

This is news that may be of interest to Liverpool, which has been heavily linked with a move for the 29-year-old midfielder.

Rummenigge admitted that talks between Alcantara and sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic over a new deal failed because the former Barcelona player decided to move on.

“The discussions that Hasan (Salihamidzic) had with him have always been very productive. And at one point it actually seemed like [a new contract] has been done, ”Rummenigge told Sky 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 it. “

Alcantara still has a year on his current contract, but Rummenigge says they will only allow the midfielder to leave on their terms and will not be forced into a quick sale.

“We have a contract with Thiago which is still valid for one year and if he comes to an agreement with a club, that club would have to pay a transfer fee of a certain amount,” said Rummenigge.

“No club has contacted us to date and would like to have concrete discussions with us.

“We will only start negotiating for their (Thiago and Alaba) sale from a certain amount. There will be no summer sales at FC Bayern. “
