Manchester United have “probably agreed personal terms” with Thiago Alcantara, as the Champions League winner’s future remains in limbo, that’s according to Bayern Munich’s former president, Uli Hoeness.
Thiago had all but agreed a new deal with the Bundesliga side before suddenly deciding to leave, much to the dismay of the club’s hierarchy.
The German champions have remained firm in their £28m evaluation of the Spain international, who has just one-year remaining on his contract, with Liverpool considered clear favourites for his signature.
However, Hoeness said Bayern are still yet to receive any official offers, and believes clubs are waiting until the twilight hours of the window in order to negotiate a cut-price deal.
“Both Liverpool and Manchester United did not come to us with an offer for Thiago,” he said.
“They are bluffing and waiting until the last week of the window to make a cheap offer.
‘’Bayern must decide whether they want to play this game or stand their ground and keep him.”
