Bayern Munich to extend Thiago contract

Bayern Munich want to extend the contract of Thiago, per Kicker. The Spaniard’s current contract expires in 2019.

The 25-year-old is currently having the best season to date, whilst he has been widely tipped in Germany to be in contention with Player of the Year.

Often plagued by injury since his arrival to the Allianz Arena under Pep Guardiola in 2013, Thiago has featured in 45 games in all competitions this season under Carlo Ancelotti – scoring and assisting seven.

For a player of his ability, fans may expect more assists, but in reality, he’s the complete midfielder that Bayern need – Thiago is often top of the passing completion stats as well as interceptions made.
