Former Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness has accused the agent of David Alaba of being "a money-grabbing piranha" amid negotiations over a new contract and claimed Manchester United and Liverpool are "trying to blackmail" Bayern over the transfer of Thiago Alcantara.

Hoeness, who stepped down at Bayern in November 2019 after more than 40 years at the forefront of the club, made the claims on Sunday during an interview on Sport1.

Last week, German outlet Sport Bild said that Bayern offered Alaba, whose contract runs out next summer, an annual salary of €11 million and a further €5m as bonuses. Kicker reported that Alaba's side, represented by agent Pini Zahavi, requested a €125m package for a new five-year deal.
