Thiago Alcantara has said goodbye to his Bayern Munich team-mates who remain in Germany, according to German football expert Patrick Strasser. He played for Bayern in the 8-2 demolition of Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-final in Lisbon on Friday night. But the Spaniard is said to be very keen for a move away from the club this summer.
Liverpool have been heavily linked with a move for the player who Strasser claims Bayern will want up to £36million for.
The Reds' boss Jurgen Klopp is said to be "desperate" to sign the 29-year-old, who has said farewell to the players who have not travelled to Portugal for the knockout stages.
“I think so yeah, he definitely wants to, and it’s just a matter of how many millions Bayern want to earn from this player,"
Strasser told talkSPORT.
“It’s said they want to make about €30m to €40m this transfer and I’m not sure if Liverpool can afford that or want to pay that. But Jurgen Klopp is desperate and keen to get Thiago in his squad.
“Thiago has already said goodbye to his team-mates in Munich and the bosses know he’s going to leave. It’s just a matter of money, in the end.”
