With a year left on contracts, Müller and Thiago — both were the prime candidates for whom Bayern was keen to continue.
Thiago was seen on a non-working day at the club’s training ground and workplace, Sabener Strasse, which led many to believe contractual discussions were the rationale for his visit.
According to German media sources, Spain midfielder Thiago Alcantara is that the new Bayern Munich star to increase his deal.
Thiago Alcantara has agreed to a replacement deal at Bayern Munich consistent with Christian Falk at Bild in Germany. Bayern’s insider posted on his Twitter that it had been his “great pleasure” to declare an agreement was reached with the German club getting to make the announcement later in the week.
Thiago has been a key player in Bayern since moving from Barcelona in 2013, despite his horrible problems with injury, and he was also a key figure for the Spanish national team when fit. Hopefully, he switched his fitness problems round the corner and will start playing in his 30s. Thiago had come from FC Barcelona to Munich for a fee of €25 million. For then Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola, Thiago’s last piece of the puzzle has been an excellent servant to Bayern Munich as he’s on the brink of hitting 150 Bundesliga games for the club.
For all football fans who love seeing the silky midfielder on the pitch and need to ascertain him making up for a lost time, this offer is astounding news. It possibly rules out a final major move – but once you played at Bayern and Barcelona, and for Spain, you’ve got already done pretty much.
