Midfielder Thiago Alcantara’s departure from Bayern Munich this summer has certainly happened, as confirmed by coach Hansi Flick.
For information, the Spanish National Team player is actually still under a one-year contract at Bayern. The Bavarian club actually still wanted to use his services and cast a new contract, but the player refused.

However, since last Thursday (17/09) news emerged that Liverpool had reached an agreement with Bayern. They agreed to pay 20 million Pounds for the midfielder, with an additional 5 million Pounds as a conditional bonus.
Not only that, Thiago Alcantara has reportedly agreed a four-season contract at the Allianz Arena. At Liverpool later, the 29-year-old player will wear jersey number 6.
Although there has been no official confirmation from the two parties, the Flick hansi coach can confirm that the club and Thiago will indeed separate.
“Thiago is an extraordinary player who spent seven very successful years here. He is an extraordinary person and an extraordinary professional. Today was very emotional when he said goodbye to all of us,” he said, as reported by Bayern’s official Twitter account.
Journalist Bild previously leaked news that Bayern Munich had reached an agreement with Liverpool for the transfer of the former Barcelona player.
