Bayern Munich believe Thiago Alcantara will leave the club this summer.

The German side have enjoyed a historic campaign in 19/20, winning the treble of the Bundesliga, the DFB-Pokal, and the Champions League.

Although Thiago was initially injured after the Bundesliga recommenced after lockdown, he eventually won his place in the starting XI back and would play a key role in the three trophy wins.

However, throughout the second half of the season he has been linked with a move away from the Allianz Arena.

Following the season climax, the Brazilian reportedly told Bayern that he wanted to leave the club to embrace a new challenge.

Liverpool have emerged as the favourites to land Thiago, but as of yet no transfer has been agreed, with Bayern holding out for more than the reported €25m offer that the Reds have placed on the table.

However, it does seem that his days in Bavaria are numbered.

"I assume that he will leave us," Flick told Bild.

"We had fully focused on the Champions League, his contract wasn't an issue in the past few weeks.

"We haven't had another conversation now, I think his decision has been made.“

Bayern have signed Leroy Sane from Manchester City this summer for a fee of €50m.
