Bayern Ignite Bidding War Between Man Utd & Liverpool?

Bayern Munich are reportedly looking to start a bidding war between Manchester United and Liverpool for one of their star midfielders.

Thiago Alcantara has been heavily linked with a move to Anfield during this transfer window, but it has been claimed the Premier League champions are not keen on Bayern's current asking price for the player.

The Spaniard has just one more year left to run on his contract with the German giants, meaning that he could be signed for free at the end of the next campaign.

Bayern are said to want £27 million (R600 million) for Thiago, which has delayed Liverpool's approach, and ESPN are now reporting that German champions have invited the Red Devils to make an offer.

United recently announced the arrival of Dutch midfielder Donny van de Beek from Ajax, but could be tempted to snatch one of the world's top midfielders from under the noses of their fierce rivals.

Other reports suggest that the Mancunians have shown some interest in the former Barcelona star, and that they have already made contact with the player's representatives.
