Thiago denies having made any decision about leaving in Spanish pre-game presser

In a week where many assumed transfers involving big-name players were completed, Bayern's resurgent midfielder threw out his own version of a "not so fast" at a national-team media event.

The 29-year-old midfielder nevertheless categorically denied this on Saturday. When confronted with a question about his sporting future, the Spanish international was quite adamant.
“I never said that I would leave Bayern,” he remarked. Just as he did in a presser earlier this week, he emphasized that he had no true thoughts beyond his next fixture. The strong refutation of what many had presumed he could not outright deny led German rumor-mill aggregator transfermarkt.de to lower the likelihood of his transfer down to 62 percent after the comments.
