Flick wishes Thiago Alcantara, David Alaba, and Jerome Boateng, to remain, who are yet to sign new deals, which will hold them through next year at Bayern Munich.
“Thiago’s an exceptional player, an incredible talent in football,” hereporters on Friday.
“He brings a great level of play to every team, and he is very smart.”
“I want him to stay here. The club and he know that. I want him to support us next year, and Alaba too.”
“We are in good spirits that it can work out, but you never know how it’s going to turn out in the sport.”
“David and Jerome do very well, Boateng is in very strong shape. That is the basis we are so good defensively.”
“It’s obvious you want to have such experienced players in your own ranks. I can’t say what Jerome thinks about it. He’s at a certain age, maybe he wants another challenge by switching. He still has got another year of the contract.”
