Owen Hargreaves believes his former club Bayern Munich should convince Thiago Alcantara to stay put. The Spain international was one of the club’s standout performers in the recent Champions League final against Paris Saint-Germain which they won by a 1-0 scoreline at the Estadio da Luz Stadium in Lisbon.
Following the game, there has been much speculation that Thiago could be on the move, considering he has refused to sign a new contract beyond next season. So far, Bayern have been unable to convince him to renew his deal, but Hargreaves is hopeful that the European champions can find the breakthrough amid the interest from Liverpool, he told BT Sport: “The big one is Thiago, they’ve got to keep him. He was one of the best players on the pitch. ‘Liverpool fans will be watching that and thinking: ‘yes please!’.”
