The Spanish midfielder has been a mainstay in a highly successful Bayern team in recent years, playing a pivotal role as they won every game in their Champions League campaign, where they eventually lifted the cup by defeating Paris Saint-Germain 1-0. Thiago – who is available for a cut-price with under a year remaining on his contract – has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League, particularly Liverpool. Ex-Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness has accused Liverpool and Man Utd of ‘blackmail’ Standard Sport understands that, while Liverpool are interested in Thiago, they are not expected to make a move this summer unless a key midfielder, such as Gini Wijnaldum, leaves. Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has admitted Thiago is likely to leave this summer, but Hoeness has now hit out at both Liverpool and United, insisting they are trying to force the club into a cheaper deal. “It is a difficult situation,” he told Sport1. “A while ago we agreed on a new four-year contract. Some days later he said: ‘I’m looking for a new challenge.’ Which is totally okay.
With about a week to the end of the UEFA Women’s EURO in the Netherlands, the stage is now set for the knockout rounds in which no team would have a second chance.Holders Germany, Denmark, Netherlands (hosts) , Sweden, Austria, Spain, England and France are the only teams left in the spotlight as the tournament gets even more intense with its air of unpredictability.Of course it might seem ridiculous to think that Denmark will serve fans an upset against Germany in today’s second quarter final – the Germans do not only reign supreme in the Women’s EURO as a whole, but also in their 21 meetings with the Danes, having 12 wins to their name and leading 44-17 in goals.However, Steffi Jones charges have been far from convincing in the Netherlands especially in front of goal and they have had to depend on penalties for three of their four goals so far.In the earlier quarter final of today, a sold-out crowd is expected to witness if the Netherlands can progress to the semi finals of the Women’s EURO for a second time in three appearances. The Dutch side have not lacked the immense home advantage that comes with being hosts and they won all their group games as a show of gratitude. Now, Sweden – who finished second to Germany in Group B – stand in the Netherlands way of taking the next big step on home soil.Austria are definitely the surprise package of the tournament. Who would have thought the newbies would beat favourites France to the top of Group C.And their fans are already hoping for a semi-final place considering that Spain – their last eight opponents – only managed to squeeze themselves through with three points.That match on Sunday will be followed by the big encounter between England and France. The Lionesses have roared their way to this stage in emphatic fashion, scoring the highest number of goals (10) and conceding just one. While France on the other hand have huffed and puffed with one win and two draws.However, in this tie England will be looking to beat France for the first time since 1974.So much to look forward to in the quarter finals of the Women’s EURO in the Netherlands. And the show starts tonight!FIXTURES:July 29Netherlands vs Sweden – 18:00Germany vs Denmark – 20:45July 30Austria vs Spain – 18:00England vs France – 20:45 Related
