Bayern Munich open to selling ‘divisive’ Thiago this summer

Bayern Munich are reportedly open to selling midfielder Thiago Alcântara this summer.

Thiago has impressed since joining Bayern from Barcelona in 2013, winning six league titles and three DFB Pokal titles.

However, according to Bild, the 28-year-old remains a ‘divisive’ figure at board level after patches of inconsistent form.

It’s understood that senior figures are disappointed with his big game performances despite boasting incredible talent.

Thiago is under contract until 2021 and could look at options elsewhere after making just 11 Bundesliga starts this term.

Bild also claim that Thomas Müller is expected to stay in Bavaria after rediscovering some form under manager Hansi Flick.
