Liverpool and Manchester United trying to blackmail Bayern Munich over Thiago, claims Hoeness

The veteran director has suggested that there is increasingly a pattern of underhand dealing in the transfer market

Former Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness has hit out at Liverpool and Manchester United, claiming that they are trying to “blackmail” the German side into selling midfielder Thiago Alcantara.

The former Barcelona player has been a cornerstone of Bayern’s success in recent years, which culminated in August as they won the Champions League with a 1-0 victory over Paris Saint-Germain in Lisbon.

The 29-year-old Spain international has been closely linked with a switch to Liverpool in recent weeks, but Hoeness has suggested that there has been some foul play at work.
