Munich annoyed at Liverpool for looking to wrap up Thiago deal for absolute bargain
Bayern Munich are ‘annoyed’ with the likes of Liverpool for not playing ball and meeting the German club’s asking price.
Thiago got headlines going crazy just a few weeks ago when it was revealed that he wants to leave the club and test himself in the Premier League before hanging up is top-level playing days.
The Spain international has been strongly linked with a move to Liverpool, who are favourites to sign him this summer but no deal has yet come to fruition, while rivals United are also said to be interested.
Now Hoeness has sensationally accused Liverpool and United of underhand tactics as they try to sign the 29-year-old for a cheaper fee than the £27 million that Bayern want later on in the transfer window.
German football expert Kevin Hatchard was asked about Hoeness’ comments, and told talkSPORT: “Famously in Germany they actually laugh at the England for throwing money at every situation, so Bayern would be quite annoyed by this [Liverpool and United’s refusal to pay up].
“He also said that he feels Thiago has probably already agreed terms with Liverpool, he may well have agreed terms with Manchester United as well, from his point of view.”
It will be very interesting to see how this all plays out as Liverpool are looking to wrap up some kind of £20 million bargain.
And the later they leave signing the midfielder, the more chance they will have as he is out of contract at the end of the season and is not keen to sign another contract with the club.
