Thiago Alcantara linked with Bayern Munich exit

German champions Bayern Munich could be set for a major makeover this summer.

Sport Bild is reporting the Bavarians are prepared to reshape their squad ahead of the new season and will listen to offers for a number of first-team players, including Thiago Alcantara.

Former Barcelona man could be set for a swift return to the Camp Nou as the  Catalans continue their search for Andres Iniesta replacement.

Ernesto Valverde is said to be looking into a possibility to resign the Spanish international but the financial stipulations and a €50 million transfer fee are said to be major roadblocks.

Apart from Thiago Alcantara, the Bavarians are reportedly willing to part ways with Jerome Boateng, Arturo Vidal and Juan Bernat.

The newly assigned head coach Niko Kovac is said to be looking to inject new blood into the squad and has already identified Christian Pulisic as his top transfer target.

He will be keen to trim the squad size and get rid of the players deemed to be dead wood by the new manager.
