Liverpool and Manchester United are trying to force Bayern Munich to sell Thiago Alcantara for a lower fee hoping to make a late offer in the transfer window, according to Uli Hoeness.

The future of Spanish international Thiago has long been the subject of debate and Premier League champions Liverpool have been touted as the midfielder’s most likely candidate.

However, rumors later suggested United were also in the running for the 29-year-old, whose contract with the Bundesliga champions expires in June 2021.

So far, no deal has been reached, and Liverpool is believed to be postponed for a starting price of € 30 million for a player who would be available with a free transfer in less than a year.

Hoeness suggested that Thiago potentially has an agreed deal with one or both teams, but that nothing has been negotiated with Bayern.

The former club president believes there may be some delaying tactics at play to try to secure a lower rate and wondered if it would be better for Bayern to tell Thiago that he has to stay.

“It’s a difficult situation. Some time ago we agreed on a new four-year contract. A few days later, he said, ‘I’m looking for a new challenge,’ which is totally fine,” Hoeness told Sport1-Doppelpass.

“I think he obviously has an agreement with Liverpool or Manchester United or both. Now both clubs are bragging, no one has officially contacted Bayern Munich.

“From my point of view, that has no style. [They’re] waiting until the last week [of the transfer window], when they are going to make a cheap offer.

“In that case, Bayern have to question whether they should accept that or say that the player has to stay.

“It will be three tense weeks until October 5. Right now, there is an evolving style [in the transfer market], even among the big clubs, which I did not know until now ”.

On Friday, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said: “I cannot end the speculation” when asked about the Reds’ pursuit of Thiago.

Rumors linking him to United have always been less specific and the signing of Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek by the Red Devils suggests such a move may be unlikely.
