Bayern Munich manager claims Thiago Alcantara and David Alaba are still in his plans

There has been a lot of speculation in recent weeks about the future of Thiago Alcantara and David Alaba at Bayern Munich, but Hansi Flick claims the duo are still in his plans ahead of the new season, according to Goal.com.

Although the German boss confirmed that the Croatian footballer Ivan Perisic will return to Inter.

Thiago has been strongly linked with a move away from the Bundesliga side this summer, with the 29-year-old refusing to extend his current deal which is set to expire next summer.

Premier League giants Liverpool are reportedly leading the race for the Spanish footballer, with the Bavarians ready to let him leave if £27 million fee is paid.

The central midfielder said that he hasn’t told anyone he is departing the Allianz Arena before featuring in Spain’s 4-0 victory over Ukraine in the recent Nations League game.

However, the club’s CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said that he is expecting an offer for the Spaniard in the coming days.

Alaba also has yet to agree to new terms with the German side, thus fueling speculations regarding his future, with Manchester City and Chelsea reportedly interested in the defender’s services this summer.

The Austrian footballer’s contract will expire next year and it is said that Bayern may look to sell him this summer in order to avoid losing him for free.

Flick admits the uncertainty of the two players’ present situation but maintains he will make preparations for the opening match against Schalke with the pair in mind.

“The situation is not that easy. As long as they are in the squad, I plan with both of them,” He told the media.
