Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has admitted that Thiago Alcántara has expressed his desire to “try something new” this summer, further fueling speculation that the midfielder could join Liverpool in the coming weeks.

Thiago has been persistently related to the Reds for the past month, and reports in Germany have held firm that only finances so far have ruined a move that both the player and the Anfield giants are eager to happen.

There have been some inconsistencies in reporting on the situation, but a fairly consistent factor has been the midfielder’s reluctance to write an extension to his contract that expires in 2021.

Rummenigge, speaking to Sky in Germany, confirmed that sports director Hasan Salihamidzic has been unable to speak to him and that the player has expressed a desire to take on a new challenge.

“Hasan’s conversations with him have always been very productive. And at some point it seemed like it was done [a new contract at Bayern]Said Rummenigge, who tends to speak clearly when it comes to transfers.

“But then Thiago informed Hasan that he would like to do something new. We have to accept that.

“We have a contract with Thiago that is still valid for one year and if he reaches an agreement with a club, that club should pay a transfer fee of a certain amount.

“I don’t want to make any public comment about the rate we have in mind. As I said, we will not have summer sales at Bayern. There will always have to be a certain amount that makes us sell a player. “

Bayern is reported to be seeking a fee in the region of € 30 million if they are to sign an exit this summer.

It is worth noting that, despite all the noise linking Thiago with an exit from Bayern, the past two weeks have been quiet in terms of directly involving Liverpool. While most of the headlines that involve Spain’s international name are the Reds, the last one that actually involved Liverpool came from Bild in mid-July, who claimed that Jurgen Klopp had asked the club to sign it.

Logically, the move doesn’t make any more sense, given that it runs counter to the transfer policy that has established the Reds as one of the best in the world in the past two seasons, but only time will tell if there’s smoke without fire.
