Bayern Munich Has Taken Their Stance On Thiago Silver Living Bayern Amid Interest From Manchester And Chelsea

Bayern Munich insists Thiago is set to stay at the club after the Bundesliga giants held talks with Manchester United and Chelsea over the midfielder.

New Bayern boss Niko Kovac is keen to trim the size of his squad and the Bundesliga giants are heavy loaded in midfield where there are nine midfielders to choose from.

Thiago has spent five years in Germany and was close to joining Manchester United in 2013 before Pep Guardiola intervened to take him to Bayern. Chelsea and United both held preliminary talks with Bayern over buying Thiago but CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge says he will not leave the club.

‘Thiago is an important player for us and we have never once articulated the thought that he should leave the club,’ said Rummenigge. ‘There has never been anything to the story whatsoever.’

Both Chelsea and United have spent big on midfielders so far this summer with Jorginho arriving at Stamford Bridge for £52m and Fred joining the Red Devils for around £47m.

Nevertheless, while Rummenigge has appeared to rule out selling Thiago, Kovac has refused to offer a guarantee. ‘I first want to get to know him. I hope and believe that he will play for Bayern [this season],’ said Kovac. ‘But I can’t give a guarantee. We have to wait until the end of August.’
