Bayern 'annoyed' about Reds-Thiago transfer approach
Liverpool are failing to honor the midfielders £27m with Bayern.
German football expert Kevin Hatchard has told talkSPORT that former Bayern president Uli Hoeness is angry at Thiago Alcántara’s transfer situation dramatized by Liverpool in an attempt to sign the sensational midfielder for cheap.
The 29-year old has reportedly agreed on personal terms with Liverpool, leaving the Reds to honor the midfielders £27m with Bayern before a deal can be officially be announced.
According to Hatchard, Bayern Munich is very annoyed by the Reds approach to wait for the final stage of the transfer window and sign the player at a lesser price especially with Manchester United also interested.
Sports Bild reported that the Reds seem to negotiate below the asking price of the former Barcelona midfielder, in the view that he will be out of contract next season and Bayern will have no option than to sell him for the required funds or get nothing when the window closes.
“Famously in Germany, they actually laugh at England for throwing money at every situation, so Bayern would be quite annoyed by this [Liverpool and United’s refusal to pay up],” Hatchard said on Sunday’s Trans European Express sighted via talkSPORTS.
“He also said that he feels Thiago has probably already agreed terms with Liverpool, he may well have agreed terms with Manchester United as well, from his point of view.”
Jurgen Klopp has refused to rule out a move for the skillful midfielder during his pre-match on Saturday when asked about the situation. He praised the versatility of the 29-year old and paused any further revelations.
“Thiago Alcantara is a really good player,” he said.
“It's nice we are linked with him but that's pretty much all really. “He's a good player, Liverpool is a big club, so it's nice, but apart from that, I've got nothing to say.”
