Bayern München will probably have to make Thiago Alcantara one of the top earners at the club to extend the 28-year-old's contract beyond 2021.

According to Bild, the Spanish midfield maestro will be holding out for an annual salary of around €15 million in his upcoming contract negotiations with the German champions.

Thiago was recently praised by Bayern München sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic who is very pleased with the 28-year-old's recent performances.

"He's doing very well, I must say. He plays with confidence and pulls the strings in midfield with 'Josh' [Kimmich]. I'm not surprised, because I know what he's capable of as a footballer," Salihamidzic said.

The midfielder has made 25 appearances this season, scoring three times and making two assists. He has played for Bayern since 2013.
