Both Manchester City and United are also keen on the 27-year-old midfielder.

Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has insisted Thiago does still remain in their plans for next season.

However, he has also dropped a huge hint that they could cash in on the Spanish international if offers arrive.

Speaking Sport Bild, he said: “No club has contacted us, nor Thiago. We still plan with him.

“However, I must say the midfield is stacked. We have 3 or 4 places for 9 players.

“The squad is great, but if we sell players, I don’t rule out that we will do something in the market.”

Meanwhile, Rummenigge also confirmed that they are willing to offload defender Jerome Boateng.

But he is adamant striker Robert Lewandowski, who is desperate to leave the Bundesliga giants, must see out his contract until 2021.
