Bayern München coach Hansi Flick says he's 'not thinking' about Thiago Alcantara potentially leaving the club.

The 29-year-old is said to be stalling on an extension to his contract, which expires next year, and could leave unless he signs a new deal, with Liverpool reportedly the most likely destination.

Flick, however, insists he's ignoring the speculation surrounding the Spanish midfielder's future.

"I'm not thinking about Thiago leaving us. I have always said that I see Thiago as an outstanding player, who can give a lot to a team," Flick said af Bayern's 4-0 victory over Wolfsburg on Saturday.

Thiago joined Bayern from FC Barcelona in 2013.
