Bayern Munich boss Hansi Flick has talked about the claims Thiago Alcantara has agreed a transfer with Liverpool.
As Spanish publication Sport claim, Thiago has already thrashed out personal terms with the Reds ahead of a summer switch. The Bundesliga champions reportedly want €35million (£31.5m) to sell the Spaniard, and to receive the transfer fee in one lump sum. And the Reds are said to want to pay for the player in installments.
However, Flick’s recent comments suggest there will be no transaction of any kind, as he intends to play Thiago in Bayern Munich’s clash with Bayer Leverkusen on Saturday.
“I hope that he won’t leave,” said Flick.
“The surgery was not so long ago. But everything went as planned. He can play from the start tomorrow. He is 100 per cent fit.”
Jurgen Klopp is preparing to strengthen his team ahead of Liverpool’s first defensive of their Premier League title next season.
