Uli Hoeness shed light on Bayern transfers

Deputy chairman of Bayern Munich executive board Uli Hoeness told about the future of Thiago Alcantara and David Alaba in a harsh manner.

If during the longer transfer period Bayern are associated with purchases, then in the current window there is more talk about the sale of players from the Rekordmeister. Despite the triumph in the Champions League, the German giants may soon lose two main players - Thiago Alcantara and David Alaba.

Both players have important roles in Hansi Flick's team. Alaba has been repurposed as a center-back and spent most of the season with Jerome Boateng due to Niklas Sule's injury. Thiago was indispensable in the midfield and defensive position at Bayern, but made it clear that he intends to leave at the end of the season.

Liverpool have been closely following Thiago for a couple of months now, but the Reds are in no hurry to make an official offer. According to rumors, the Merseysiders are going to bring down the price on the player whose contract is about to expire. At the same time, there is an opinion that Manchester United are fighting for Thiago with Liverpool. Hoeness has his own opinion on this matter,

“Difficult situation. Some time ago, we agreed on a new four-year contract. A couple of days later, he said, "I'm looking for a new challenge." Well, that's perfectly normal.

I think he clearly has an agreement with Liverpool or Manchester United, maybe with two clubs altogether. Now both clubs are bluffing and no one has officially contacted Bayern. It seems to me that this is not done. They are trying to blackmail us, waiting until the last week, and then they will make a cheap offer,” the functionary said.

As for the future of Alaba, Hoeness did not choose the words here and called the player's agent a greedy piranha controlled by money. It was Pini Zahavi who played a role in the Austrian's request for a five-year contract worth 125 million euros. Bayern do not intend to keep the player at any cost, even in the context of the financial crisis and the fact that Alaba's contract expires in a year.

The Germans keep the brand of consistency. Despite the unusual harsh statements, as for Bayern, the club's management decided to go to extreme measures and shed light on what is happening. This only means that it is already clear for the Rekordmeister that both players will not remain at Allianz Arena at least after the end of the next season.
