Bayern Munich grant Thiago time off to consider Liverpool, Barcelona offers

Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara is spending this week weighing up his future.

BILD says he has been given additional time off by Bayern Munich and the next few days will be crucial in deciding his future.

The midfielder could yet move to Liverpool if Georginio Wijnaldum leaves the club for Barcelona, where Ronald Koeman is keen to bring him in.

Thiago recently insisted that he had never publicly declared his desire to leave Bayern but his house is up for sale and he has said goodbyes to team-mates.

The German champions have 'afforded the Spaniard the next few days off' to rest and get his affairs in order following the Nations League games.

And according to Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, the next few days are key, with Bayern still holding out for £27million.
